Summer 2017! Trip to Örö island by a sailing ship, Kasnäs

Summer 2017! Trip to Örö island by a sailing ship, Kasnäs

A day tour by sailing ship Inga to Örö island, which opened up for public only this year after serving years as a military fortress. Your captain will tell you about the military history and unique nature but also have time to watch around on your own.

Galeas Inga is a sailing ship, which was built in 1946-47.  This tour to the island of Örö starts from Kasnäs, the home harbour of Inga. Your captain Johan Stenbäck invites his guests  to participate in sailing.  It feels festive, when the sails are hoisted and the sailing tour starts.

Örö fortress island  was opened for public in June 2015 after a long military possession. Russia built a fortress on Örö island in 1914-1915. In those days Finland was an autonomic part of Russia. Since the independence in 1917 until the end of 2014 Örö functioned as a coastal fortress of the Finnish militaary forces.  Specialities and war historical rarities of  Örö are the 12 inch (305cm) Obuhov cannons, whose range is 45km. Your captain is the best possible guide, he  knows all about the military history of island.

Another point of view is given on the nature tour. The flora of the island is unique. There are 200 hectares of untouched forest, shores, dry meadows and moores. Many rare plants can be found and if you are lucky, you can see a white-tailed eagle fly over the island.
