  – Cabin living in Haparanda's archipelago


Hamnskär lies in Haparanda's archipelago close to the boarder of Finland about 60 minutes from Seskarö by boat.

The island consists of thick forrest and sandy beaches, perfect for swimming and sun bathing. Included in the cabin rental is access to a wonderful sauna.


During the week there are opportunities to follow along with the fisherman and watch them empty the tools used to catch fish here on the island. Afterwards you have the option to purchase fresh caught fish for dinner.




We will begin by gathering at Seskarö's port, located about 20 minutes from Haparanda,

and continue by boat from there to Hamnskär.

After a boat ride through Skomakar bay of approximately one hour, we will arrive and can make our way ashore.

Once we have arrived we will go through all the information pertaining to the cabin together.


The island is full of unlimited possibilities with fantastic beaches, hiking and fishing from the shore.

You can also rent a boat and explore the surrounding islands.

And of course after dinner you can start the fire in the sauna and enjoy a relaxing evening in the glow of midnight sun.



After 6 wonderful days it's time to return home. The cabin is to be cleaned and prepared for departure before noon.
