You can also book the ‘picnic tour’ and a viewing of the house and the Kobbabåk. Bring your own food or order a picnic basket together with the boat trip.

The unique view of the Åland Sea and the historically interesting place make Kobba Klintar a great destination for an excursion. Visitors are always welcome to Kobbarna!

In the past, the proud sailing ships made use of pilots from Kobba Klintar upon their arrival to the maritime city. Today, instead, you can see the modern cruise ships passing by. On the island you can explore the old pilot’s cabin and the larger pilot’s house with its fog horn. On the balcony of the house there is a pilot carved out of wood scouting out across the sea made by artist Juha Pykäläinen. The Pilots House lives on as a museum.

Kobba Klintar’s Friends Association

Kobba Klintar’s Friends Association was founded in 2002 to preserve and nurture the unique maritime and culturally interesting environment associated with Kobba Klintar. The island belongs to Mariehamn and all of Åland’s face towards the sea.

The association leases the island with all the buildings and the port facility for a symbolic sum from Mariehamn. The lease agreement runs for 25 years and makes it possible to realize the association’s objectives.

Kobba Klintar’s Friends is responsible for:

  • Maintenance and restoration of the buildings at Kobba Klintar
  • Enabling to keep the pilot station open to the public

The harbour was restored in 2007 and we have thus gained more boat places and a beach for small boats. The entrance to the harbour is marked with line boards. A voluntary port fee goes towards the conservation of Kobba Klintar.
