One of the hubs along ARK56 is Järnavik, one of Blekinge’s best natural harbours. In the Middle Ages, foreign ships loaded wood, tar and hides here at the quay, and the red warehouse is a relic of the age of sail.
It is not far from here to a fine view of the archipelago from the hill in Järnavik nature reserve. Or to Tjärö, where you can walk in the preserved grazing enclosures or paddle along the shore of the nature reserve and look for white-tailed sea eagles.
You have ARK56 and the Blekinge Archipelago in front of you here. The cape or headland offers experiences in a unique environment that has been shaped by nature, animals and people for thousands of years.
As a hub, Järnavik is a good place to start or finish your adventure – or change means of transportation and continue discovering the Blekinge Archipelago by bike, kayak, boat, ferry or on foot.
