Lighthouse island Söderskär

On Saturday July 2016 we embarked on a Pörtö Line boat bound for Söderskär, the lighthouse island just off shore of east Helsinki. The boat left at 9 o’clock and it took an hour and fifteen minutes to get to the island. Here is a time lapse clip from the fare.

Söderskär is made up of two main islands, the boat arrives on Majakkasaari with the lighthouse on it. The other island Luotsisaari is connected to the first one by a hanging bridge.

The following four photographs are from the arrival.

The boat leaves around twelve o’clock which gives you roughly 90 minutes to explore the islands. It’s a rather short time and even more so if you consider the fare prices which for adults 53e and 23e for children aged between 7-14 years.
