See & Do Activities Hiking

Mariehamn Runt 13 km – small boat jetties, beaches and ferries

The eastern and western seasides of Mariehamn offer a sense of genuine archipelago atmosphere. There are paths along the shore, in some places right next to the waterline. To cross over from east to west, or vice versa, follow the streets.

The western side is hilly with cliffs, and wooden walkways and stairs have been built to make the path easier to walk. The eastern shore is lower with seaside meadows. On the western side you can see the ferries arriving and leaving the port of Mariehamn. South of the Korrvik fishing harbour you can see a view of the old pilot station island Kobba Klintar by the port entrance. Here you can also enjoy the evening sun. There are benches along the trail and smooth rocks to sit down.

On the eastern seaside, there are several boat jetties and Tullarns Äng nature reserve with deciduous trees and wild flowers, such as white anemone, cowslip and yellow star-of-Bethlehem. Along the eastern shore there are three bathing beaches; at Lilla Holmen, Gröna Udden and Nabben. A wetland with wooden walkways has been constructed on Nabben seashore.

Enjoy nature! Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footsteps.
