Snake excurtion (3-4h maximum 4 guests)
We go out by boat to one of the more snake rich islands in the arcipelago where we will explore the island on lookout for snakes and other interesting organisms. Commonly found snakes are grass snakes and the common european viper, and if you are lucky we might find the much more rare smoth snake, wich is fairly common on the Åland Islands. The tour includes a light snack and something to drink. For this tour you need to be able to walk slowly in varying terrain.
Islandtrip (approximately 2h maximum 4 guests)
Go by boat to an uninhabited island in the archipelago where you can explore the fantastic nature with an experienced guide. In the tour a light snack and something to drink is included. And you need to be able to move around slowly in easy terrain.
Naturephotography for beginners (3-4h maximum 4 guests for archipelago and maximum 8 guests on the main island.)
This tour is for those who have recently bough a systemcamera or would just like to try out nature photography with a proper camera. There is one camera to borrow, so a group will have to share, and you need to bring an SD-card so you can bring your pictures with you. (a 4GB card is enough for about 300 pictures) The tour can be done in any of the environments on the Åland islands.
Seabird excurtion (4-6h maximum 2 guests)
On this very special tour we go out to an islands where we put up a blind and decoy birds, just like in traditional bird hunting.
