Archipelago cruise to Gustavsvärn and The Pike´s Gut
Gustavsvärn is the best kept part of a four-part larger whole of fortresses outside Hanko. The little islet contains the ruins of a fortress built by the Swedes in the late 18th century, as well as a lighthouse from 1951. The attendant’s house is well kept and looked after by the Finnish Lighthouse Society, who sell souvenirs there in the summer.
