A short boat ride from Fjallbacka and you are in island heaven. You are welcome like a family member and instantly feel as if you have lived here for a long time. I came with a friend for one night only as part of a package with Inn Travel. We were a bit worried that the bathrooms were not en suite or even on the same floor but then neither is mine at home! Our twin room was light and airy, named after the wife of one of the former pilots. These men used to ferry the larger ships to the mainland to avoid the many treacherous skerries. All six rooms are named after pilots and all the rooms I peeked into had extra sleeping space hollowed into the walls. There are no locks on the doors so you feel like a house guest and not a client. Food is served in the restaurant downstairs and is of excellent quality due to the Norwegian chef who also plays a mean guitar if you tempt him. So what else do you do on a remote island? Well you walk on the marked trail and sit for an hour or two watching the waves. You walk a bit more then sit and watch the playful antics of seals on a neighbouring isle. You walk and sit to watch the sun go down and fill the big skies with streaks of red and pink. And when you have done this, you go to bed and wake up the next morning feeling totally relaxed. You go for another walk and then return for breakfast which is really good. By the time you are limp with relaxation, it is time to get the ferry back to the mainland. Was it worth it? Oh yes.
