Track and weather conditions
Description of the tracks (road, landscape)
Björköby archipelago walk is fairly difficult terrain and about 20 kilometres long. Björkö is named as the Unesco Nature World Heritage area. At the end of the day an archipelago meal consisting of local specialities will be served. The trip lasts for about 8 hours. On this walk you have an exceptional possibility to enjoy the virgin and wild nature of the coastal area and see concrete the phenomena of the world's most specific land uplift. During the days of Vaasan Marssi you can enjoy the ripe berries along the routes or taste some genuine böckling (smoked small Baltic herring). The sea wind will keep you fresh all day long. The track is flat and it circles in the deep forests, new residential areas, inside lakes and - of course - the seaside from several points of views. On the route of Friday there are one or two special "mountains" to climb up.
Good care along the road
Along the routes there are service points at intervals of about 5 kilometres, where you can get water, refreshments and small things to eat for free. At the service point you can also buy coffee and pancakes.
Weather
This time of the summer the weather is warm - sometimes around 25 degrees.
