Old Time Yacht Sailing to Örö in Archipelago National Park
Join us on an old-time sailing adventure into the Archipelago National Park! We will be visiting the fortress island of Örö, which is unique in both its fragile nature and long history as a military fortress. The island’s history as a fortress began under Russian rule during 1910’s, as part of Peter the Great’s marine fortifications and has been used by the military ever since. Military operations on the island have created ideal conditions for many rare species of flora and fauna. The island was opened to the public in 2015.
Yacht Eugenia, built in 2000, is a copy of an actual vessel built close by on Bolax island and sailed 1879-1951.
Our local guide leads you through the history of the old military fortress. You have also free time to explore the secrets of the island on your own. The natural environment of Örö is unique featuring a large number of threatened plants, butterflies and habitats.
You have also time to enjoy lunch in the island restaurant that is located in one of the old buildings from Russian times over 100 years ago. Or in the bistro by the seashore. (Lunch not included in the price). On the return trip coffee with buns will be served.
