Located in the Kökar archipelago Kälskär – called the baron’s paradise in English, is a small, almost mythical island, far out at sea, off mainland Kökar. The island is one of the most popular destinations for excursions from Kökar and what has attracted visitors for a long time is the so-called “Källskärskannan”, a unique rock formation created during the ice age. The formation stretching about 3 m up from the surrounding rock is smooth and round. There are also other amazing natural phenomena created throughout history.
What has recently contributed to the legends of Källskär is the oasis created by the Swedish baron Göran Åkerhielm. Despite the rough ground and the exposed situation of the island, a harbour, several houses and a magnificent garden have been constructed here.
The boat trip usually starts from Brudhäll at 1pm. (13:00). Visitors will be back at the hotel in 3–4 hours. A guide will show visitors around the island.
