Coastal Swedish Lapland island experience

Experience labyrinths and fisherman´s villages

Your coastal experience starts from Renöhamn wharf 7 km outside the town of Piteå, were your guide welcome you and take you onboard our comfortable boat M/B RENÖN.  From here we go from the inner archipelago of Piteå populated with charming summer houses and fisherman cottages to the unpopulated wilderness of the outermost islands. Here at the land of the sea eagle, you may spot moose, deer, reindeers and even perhaps the brown bear on the islands. You will land on charming fisherman villages with several hundred-year-old fisherman’s huts, and remains back to the 1700th century. The islands have been an important fishing and seal hunting areas for almost thousand years, and archeological remains tell you the stories of their hard life. Here you also find mystical remains of these early hunters – the mythological labyrinths that are placed strategically in the island landscape. You walk through the moorland-like landscape of the islands, and may hear howling grey seals from a colony nearby, when you suddenly stumble over the labyrinth. You immerge in the experience of this historical landscape, in your mind visualizing the two kilometers of ice above your head some ten thousand years ago, and later how the island over thousands of years’ rise from the sea like a titan of rock rising from the water. You try to visualize how the seals used to roast on the first rocks emerging from the sea, and the first hunters arriving to find a living from the area. After the island tour an outdoor coastal lunch awaits you by an open fire place.
