Kökar is a tiny municipality in Åland. It has only about 240 inhabitants. To get to Kökar one has to take a ferry either from Långnäs (main island) or Galtby (Korpo). The journey in both cases takes about 2,5 hours.
I spend 24 hours on this beautiful island surrounded by the waves of the Baltic Sea.
Here’s what I saw.
Above: Heathers are purple, junipers are green – and the sea is blue. In Kökar this is a very typical view.
Above: It was a beautiful summer day so we went for a morning hike to this beautiful hidden place.
Above: A grass snake came to say hello. Grass snakes are completely harmless.
Above: We found this beautiful secret lagoon and went for a swim.
Above: This is what I saw underwater. There were lots of jellyfish but they are harmless.
Above: There are also forests in Kökar.
Above: Look at those colors!
Above: We also went to see what the local flea market looked like. It’s not everyday you find a seafront flea market.
Above: Buildings in Kökar are typically red and quite small. Looks really nice.
