Cruises and boat trips

Would you like to experience the Kvarken Archipelago from a new angle? Perhaps you would like to see the Kvarken’s own red ‘Eiffel tower’ at Valsörarna islands? The cruises in the Kvarken take you to both the inner and outer archipelago whose islands are little paradises in beautiful summer days.

In addition to the organised cruises, you can order boat transportation for example to the Björkö-Panike hiking trail located on an island. Many entrepreneurs in the archipelago offer boat trips according to your needs.
