Jurmo 3 km – archipelago spirit and swimming in the sea
The trail runs through a characteristic archipelago environment with beautiful nature and living cultural landscape. The trail starts with a moderate uphill through a sparse pine forest. A couple of hundreds of metres from the path there is a lookout tower to which you can make a detour and get a nice view of the archipelago nature.
Birdlife is rich and depending on the season, you can see seabirds such as goosander and common goldeneye, seagulls of numerous species and also greylag goose, white-tailed eagle and raven. From the trail you can see highland cattle grazing on the nearby meadows. Wild animals such as roe deer and fox are also found on the island. The trail passes a pebble beach and cliffs. Here you can take a picnic break and a swim in the Skiftet, the sea between Åland and Finland.
Enjoy nature! Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footsteps.
