Visit Bergö, the Pearl of Kvarken!
Welcome to a unique and scenic island in Kvarken. On Bergö, it is easy to unwind. Here we live in harmony with the nature. After a 10-minute ferry trip to Bergö from the mainland, you drive ashore onto a small archipelago paradise.
During this tour, you can choose between following a guide who presents Bergö and exploring the island on your own.
During the guided tour from the bus, you will hear the history of Bergö from when it rose out of the sea to this date. How people lived and worked on Bergö, spiced up with tales of weapon smuggling etc. You will also visit the church, the churchyard and the Klockargårdens museum that originally was the bell-ringers residence. The tour takes two hours, with start and finish at Bergö Café & Hantverk. The guide speaks both Finnish and Swedish. Price of the tour is 4 EUR/person, bookings in advance via Visit Vaasa.
If you want to explore Bergö on your own, get off the bus at Bergö Café & Hantverk right after arriving at the island. Tip: you can order a picnic basket in advance. The basket includes the salad of the day, bread, coffee/tea, bun, a bottle of water, and a blanket to sit on. The price of the basket is 17 EUR/person. You can order it via Visit Vaasa.
The café was built in 1763, and it is the oldest building still located on its original place. You can sit on the yard lined by lilacs and enjoy homemade ice cream and pastries, both sweet and savory. You can buy local handicrafts and homemade food products from the store.
It is also possible to rent a bike from here. A limited number of bikes is available for renting on the spot.
You can also explore the island by foot, go for a swim at the beach, play minigolf, drop by Niittytila tree nursery www.niittytila.com/, or just wander around the village. You can buy sausages from the café for barbecuing at the beach.
Remember to pay attention to the time so that you will catch the bus before it heads back, since you need to take the ferry to get to the mainland!
