You start at Renöhamn wharf and pass island with beautiful summerhouses and fisherman´s cottages in the inner archipelago, to the outermost unsettled wilderness islands where moose, reindeer and even brown bear roam.
Now in front of you are numerous of grey seals roosting on rocks just beneath the water, giving an impression they are lying on the water. You hear them grunt and growl, while others are singing and howling almost as wolfs, giving a natural explanation to the mythological singing Sirens, the dangerous beautiful creatures, who lured sailors with their voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their islands.
Around the boat the heads of curious seals glance at you, until they slowly sink back in the water, to pop up somewhere else. Now you enter their world. Dressed with dry suits and snorkeling gear you meet the seals in their own environment – in the sea. They will curiously look at you, and if you get lucky, they may pass you at close distance.
After this close encounter with these northern seals, you take a rest at the Fisherman’s Lodge and have a taste of the coastal Swedish Lapland snacks.
