Nature and adventure

Following the White-tailed Eagle

The archipelago in the Baltic Sea between Åland and mainland Finland is one of the largest archipelagos in the world. The National Park includes more than 2,000 islands and rocky islets shaped by waves and the ice sheet during the Ice Age.

Saving the white-tailed eagle is a success story of the Archipelago National Park. This great bird almost vanished in the 1970 with only 5-6 nesting couples but has increased to over 300 nestings this year thanks to protection work. The white-tailed eagle is the largest breeding bird in Finland and the whole of Northern Europe: its wingspan can be as wide as 2.5 metres and it can weigh 7 kg.

Come and join us for a day tour in the white-tailed eagles home environment. You will learn about the wildlife in the archipelago with help of an experienced nature guide and can try to spot these great birds that frequently fly over the islands. We will visit a local fishing village and have a delicious meal there, and take a walk on a nature path learning about the traces of the Ice Age 10.000 years ago, still visible on the bare rock surface of the islands.

Tour operator price 75 € /person for groups 6-20 persons.

Duration 4 hours

This day tour can easily be combined to a multi-day package in the Finnish Archipelago Sea.
