Eider duck safaris to Bengtskär lighthouse

As spring takes over the Archipelago Sea, the little island of Bengtskär lighthouse turns into a paradise for birds.

The lightshouse island becomes the home for hudred of eider ducks (Somateria mollissima) in the spring. The human presence on the island keeps predators away and makes a safe habitat for nesting birds. During the trip we pass small skerries off the coast and we see birds, occasionally seals, fantastic ice-age scaped landscapes, nature and cultural archipelago village scenes. The spring weather is cool but it’s always warm on board.

The eider duck safaris are organized in May, on Saturdays and Sundays, for bigger groups also as charter tours. Departure is from Kasnäs. The trips are bookable from here:
