Höga C Observation Tower

Åland Archipelago

Above the tunnel before you cross the bridge to Sund, the 30m-high observation tower at Café Uffe på Berget affords superb views of the archipelago and is a popular photo stop. Across the road is Godby Arboretum, a small nature park with native and exotic trees along a short, marked nature trail.
