Ramsholmen − verdant wooded meadows with a scent of the sea and ramson

Show map

Ramsholmen is covered in wooded meadows, the most diverse type of habitat in Åland. In spring and summer the floral splendour is stunning with wild anemones, ramsons, snake’s heads and cowslips. There are mazes of hazelnut bushes, past pollard ash-trees and coastal meadows with orchids and other rare species. The abundance of strong-smelling, garlicky ramson has probably given the area its name. In July the meadows are mowed in the traditional manner. Sea fowl, waders, hole nesters and other species breed or search for food in the rich grounds of the wooded meadow. To the east of Ramsholmen is Torpfjärden, a sea bay with some of the finest bird life.

This is a nature reserve, please follow the marked trails. You may not break branches, pick berries, mushrooms, plants, mosses, lichens, fire wood or stones. From May until October there are grazing cattle in the area. Dogs must be kept on leash. The trail passes through private property, please show respect.

Enjoy nature! Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footsteps.
