We can arrange a cruising trip from Wästinn to Kvarken UNESCO archipelago calls “Mickelsörarna” about 1 hour away.The Mikelsörana islands were inhabited for a long time, and the last resident was a 90 years old Ida Lundberg, who lived on the islands until the late 1990’s. By that time, Mickelsörarna had been inhabited for 160 years. Luckily, the story of Ida and many others have been written down. The stories tell for example how the cunning spirit smugglers bought the first motor boat and how the men sat up in the spruces during the Winter War in 1939, keeping watch.
There have been 35 residents in Mickelsörarna islands at its peak, and these people lived there almost year round. But already in the 16th century, fishermen and hunters visited the islands. At that time, Kummelskär island had just risen from the sea due to the land uplift. Along the nature trail, you can spot traces of the old days: mysterious giants’ guards, Russian ovens and compass roses.
At Kummelskär island, there is a nature station which was previously a coast guard station. On the sheltered southern shore is a guest harbour. From the nature station’s observation tower you can view the unique landscape that it selected on UNESCO World Heritage List.
