Kvarken - Natural World Heritage Site
The landscape of Kvarken is changing all the time. The specialities are the De Geer moraines, rising from the sea and building lagoons behind. These are excellent spots for fish to spawn and the fish are attracting birds. Between the moraine formations are parched fields with extraordinary endemic flora to be found.
All of this is to be explored with guided tours in nature. World heritage guides and Kvarkenguides are found at www.merenkurkku.fi
Paddling is an excellent way to explore the diverse nature of Kvarken. Maps and guided tours are found at www.visitvaasa.fi. Kayaks and canoes can be rented from Björkö entrepreneurs. Please do not hesitate to ask more from Camping-host Tapani or the hostess of Merenkurkun Majatalo Anne: Merenkurkun Majatalon .
Biking along the sand ways and trails is pleasant. The small villages, the store in the village, cafés and souvenir shops are cozy and attractive to visit. By bike you get close to the shore and beaches as well as nature trails. The bikes are possible to rent from Merenkurkun Majatalo or ask the host Tapani tel. + 358-50-5262 300.
