Paddlingsfabriken tour to Jussarö in Ekenäs/Tammisaari

is the largest of outer islands in the Ekenäs (Tammisaari) archipelago and is an island with many faces. The most obvious is its history of iron ore and mining. Second and less known is the islands hidden miniature archipelago that is often challenging to reach. As a motor boater you would consider magnetic disturbances, underwater rocks, waves and narrow channels met by rocks on both sides. Many ships rest on the sea bead around the island.

A kayaker must consider the remoteness and that the island is exposed to mist and windwaves. If the weather changes to challenging there would be no time to loose if you want to seek shelter elsewhere. The distance to Jussarö by kayak is 8km from the closest carpark, a further 5 km to the Lighthouse on Sundharun. Many interesting features can be found on the way. Channels, pits in the bead rock, channels, pondlike bays, boathouses and nice shores to relax on.
