Nåtö − wooded meadows with stunning wildflowers

Show map

Nåtö is a wooded meadow and one of Åland’s most diverse and richest type of habitat. Wooded meadows were common in Åland until the late 1800s, but changes in farming have led to the disappearance of most of these areas. Nåtö has flowering meadows with e.g. wild orchids, old pastures, coastal meadows and verdant groves of hazelnut trees. Every year in July the meadows are mowed in traditional manner. Nåtö has a rich birdlife with e.g. in Finland rare spotted-nutcracker and other birds nesting in old hollow trees.

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.

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