Sailing and cruises
The Lighthouse of Bengtskär
An unforgettable journey trough the archipelago to the territorial waters of Finland, where the lighthouse of Bengtskär, the tallest one in the Nordic countries, rises its tower from the waves of the Baltic sea. At the lighthouse we’ll learn, through guidance and exhibitions, the interesting history of the place. We’ll eat a tasty lighthouse-lunch. Our journey will pass trough the calmer waters surrounding the island of Hitis. From time to time bad weather can stop us from getting to Begtskär. In that case we’ll tour the inner islands and see other sights. For our experienced skipper the safety of his passengers comes first. In connection to this trip it’s possible to organise a visit to the nature centre Blue Mussle in Kasnäs, or the spa* or even the Vikingcentre of Rodeborg in Rosala*.
