Kumlinge åttan 12,5 km – medieval church and archipelago nature
Along the trail there are a couple of lookout points. The area has a rich birdlife and wildlife with e.g. crane, roe deer, fox and elk. The information boards along the trail tell about nature, history and sights, e.g. St. Anne’s Church, midsummer pole, pharmacy, cottage hospital, and the battle of Kumlinge in 1808. In addition, a part of the trail follows the old mail road.
Enjoy nature! Take nothing but photos, leave nothing but footsteps.
