Really nice surprise to find this here in Finland! Pretty seaside are with very variable nature, specialty is of course the rising land - it's well to be seen from tower at Svedjehamn, but also from boat tours made to nearby islands.

I've done several guided cruises to the Valsörarna Islands along the slalom route through the rocky de Geer moraines in Svedjehamn - it´s always exciting if we'll make it this time - we haven't hit a rock yet, but one day it may happen.
