Nature impact

The nature of the archipelago where we live and work is a matter of our hearts and we work closely in cooperation with it. We bring people to natural simple living-conditions in close contact to nature to learn how to leave as small trace after as possible. On our activities we recycle and sort our waste and serve mainly organic vegan food from sustainable ingredients. In our events we do always some work together, you might help us to carry water, chop vegetables or light a campfire. We also want to minimize energy consumption in our activities. In the archipelago, we mainly use kayaks and rowing boats as a modes of transportation and the electricity we use is solar or wind electricity. We also try to minimize our purchases and are very mindful in what we buy. We encourage our customers also to use public transport whenever possible. This is what we want to bring out in all our activities:
