We start off from Hönö Klåva and you will see and experience the beautiful archipelago between Hönö and Vinga. The Skipper explains life on the islands and tells stories of historical events. You'll learn what happened during the last day of World War II outside Fotö, May 8, 1945, how the German Submarine U-3503 sank and what happened to the crew.
You'll also get to hear the story of the Englishman's free port during Napoleon's continental block in 1807-1812. The stories are exciting for both children and adults alike!
On our way to Vinga we stop by a seal colony taking care not to disturb them. This gives us a chance to see the seals in their natural environment while the skipper tells how they live and feel.
The visit to Vinga Island lasts for about 1 hour. Here you can discover Vinga on your own, take a swim in the bay, see the lighthouse and have an icecream in the harbor. You can also go for a guided tour with Winga friends where you get the story of Vinga and life on the island. You walk 115 steps up the lighthouse and see the amazing views from the top of the lighthouse, "you can stretch your eyes". Visit the beacon and the museum in Sweden's most famous singer and songwrighter Evert Taube's childhood home.
On the way back, through natural harbours, the skipper continues his stories. We'll do our best to ensure you'll get to discover our beautiful archipelago in the best possible way with the Belle-Amie sightseeing boat.
