Klobben – at the edge of the sea
Our modern fishing camp is situated on the island of Klobben (Swedish pronunciation Klåbben) in the outer archipelago of Saltvik. Here we offer you a different kind of experience – stay in one of the ten huts where the sea is your closest neighbour.
In the old times the fishermen of Åland built camps with small huts in the ouskirts of the archipleago, used for shelter and overnight stay during the strenuous season of Baltic herring fishing. The modest huts at Klobben are a built after the same model, you can stay here comfortably and well tucked in, as close to nature as can be. No matter the weather or wind, your stay on Klobben will be unforgettable.
It doesn't get closer to nature than this
The timber the sheds are built of comes from 500 year old pines in the forests of Saltvik. With time the colour of the timber changes to a beautiful shade of grey. In total there are 32 beds, but Klobben has the capacity to house up to 40 guests. The main house of the island Saltarboden (salt shed) is a natural gathering point for meetings and meals. Meals that have the authentic taste of archipelago are shipped in from Silverskär!
Naturally there is a sauna on Klobben. It is built into a cliff crevice with the sauna bench adjusted to match the shape of the rock.
The atmosphere of Klobben is difficult to describe, you have to experience it. When waves are breaking the cliffs and the wind is whining, the silence from the city and the sense of stillness are still astonishing. Even the view from the islands outhouse will take your breath away!
