Spring in the outer archipelago is a magical time. The little lighthouse island becomes home for hundreds of nesting eider ducks. The human presence on the island keeps predators aways and makes safe habitate for nesting birds.

Our trip goes through the Hitis archipelago, along the most sheltered route towards the outer archipelago and Bengtskär lighthouse.

Bengtskär lighthouse is the most impressive sight in the Southwestern archipelago of Finland. Its massive stone walls have witnessed some of the most dramatic events in history of the country. For over a hundred years, the lighthouse has guided thousands of seafarers along safe routes. During this day visit, you will become acquainted with the history of the lighthouse and the nature of the archipelago. On climbing the tower and reaching the top, you’re awarded with a stunning view of the surrounding archipelago and the open sea.

For lunch we serve Bengtskär’s own fish soup made from local fish, archipelago rye bread, butter and water. For desert coffee and freshly baked cinnamon bun. Other beverages available from the café.
