Wonderful!

I have been visiting Utö regularly in 50 years! All seasons, all kinds of weathers! Travelling to Utö by the ferry is free. Hotel, terraced houses, hostels and private accomodations. Excellent food at the hotel restaurant. The traveller must be a nature enthusiast, the island has a lot of cliffs, the weather can sometimes be really challenging, but the nature is enchanting, the lighthouse with a church inside a specialty and worth of visit...as the whole island with its little village and chapel!

I visited Utö fo the first time on May Day weekend. The weather was just lovely; sunny and calm. There were only a small amount of visitors so the island was not over overcrowded. I'm not a birdwatcher but I was lucky to see Black-crowned night heron and a European stonechat. I just enjoyed the scenes of the archipelago. The boat trip to Utö takes awhile but all the way there are many many islands to see on the way. . A two night stay is just perfect.
There is a small grocery shop and a café in Utö. I highly recommend!

Utö is a remote island some 6 hours from Turku (bus about 2 hours, boat another 4). It is a splendid place for bird-watchers and nature enthusiasts in general. It has a very nice hotel (Havshotel) and a hostel as well as family accommodation throughout the year. A resident gives tours around the island and the lighthouse.Of particular interst is the lighthouse chapel, the only one I have ever encountered. Make sure that you book your accommodation in advance especially during the summer months.

Archipelago living
Took the M/S Eivor from Pärnäs harbor (it's free!) And enjoyed the trip to Uto. The ship visits 4-5 ports along the route, all islands, and takes 4-5 hours to reach Uto. The ship also has a restaurant with tv's and a sun deck.
Uto island has a small, however well stocked, grocery store. The island's main attraction is the lighthouse, with tours available at the store, as well as tours of the island. You can also reach Uto with your own boat, but during the summer the piers can be quite full and beware of the safety zones surrounding the island. Uto has a hotel at an old barracks building and houses with amneties for rent available from Hanna's horizont. I recommend the visit to the lighthouse and bird/naturewatching in the area. Some of the island is still a military zone, but most of the island is accessible on foot. Taking a car with the boat is not necessary and might not even be possible. Returned on the M/S Eivor (free again!).

Most beautiful archipelago in the world!

If you have an extra day or two in your hands, take a trip on a free boat travelling through the archipelago to Utö, or another island closer to the mainland, Jurmo. You will experience authentic island living like nowhere else!
