“Bengtskär is the mother, grandmother and godmother of all lighthouses! The lighthouse has a good old-fashioned archipelago kitchen, a lovely host couple and wonderful staff. Staying the night is definitely worth it! If you visit one lighthouse in your life—make it Bengtskär!”
Bengtskär lighthouse is the most majestic and impressive sight in the Southwestern archipelago. Its massive stone walls have witnessed some of the most dramatic events in our history. For over a hundred years, the lighthouse has guided thousands of seafarers along safe routes. In the summer of 1995 the lighthouse was opened for visitors.
The exhibitions tell of lighthouses, war history and the environment of the archipelago, among other things. On the bottom floor resides the first lighthouse museum in Finland as well as a permanent Bengtskär 1941 exhibition, which uses pictures and documents to tell the story of the battle of Bengtskär.
On the first floor of living quarters, there is a café, a chapel, the lighthouse post office and the restored home of the lighthouse keeper. On climbing the tower and reaching the top, you’re awarded with a stunning view of the sea.
The hotel rooms and the conference room are on the second floor of living quarters. This way, the lighthouse provides opportunities for meetings and training events as well as unique accommodation for individual travelers and families. Overnight bookings so far only by email or phone from our booking office email@example.com / +358 40 218 2960.
Day trips are also a great way to visit the lighthouse. The Archipelago Sights Route cruise in June-August gives you the opportunity to visit both Rosala Viking Centre and Bengtskär lighthouse on the same day. The spring and autumn tours to Bengtskär depart from Kasnäs in May and September every weekend. You can book a day trip here below.
