Clothing and equipment

Good hiking shoes are recommended, but if it is warm, you can walk along the beaches just as well with a good pair of sandals or barefoot.

There are no wetlands on the island. Spring and early summer are chilly, so it is recommended that you pack warm clothing. In general, binoculars and a camera are obvious accessories as well as swimwear, of course. A day trip backpack is good for carrying lunch and coffee. If you want to see the whole island, you could be walking up to 20 km a day.

It is not possible to buy groceries on the island. You need to bring all your supplies with you. Remember to bring food for a few extra days as the passenger boat may be prevented by severe weather.
