Bärsskär is a dream. It’s a small island rising high in the middle of the Finnish Archipelago National Park. It’s got colourful rocky beaches that tell the story of how it emerged from the sea after the last ice age. Vegetation is scarce, reminding us how harsh it gets there during the long winter months. But in the summer, it is a paradise for birds – and perhaps for you.
Bärsskär is owned by Finnish entrepreneur Mika Ihamuotila, who is well known for his appreciation and love for the archipelago. In 2021 he opened Bärsskär for the use of international and domestic journalists and influencers so that they too could experience the incredible surrounding nature.
