Welcome to Kökar

The islands’ appealingly barren landscape attracted Bronze Age seal hunters and Hanseatic traders. Archaeologists have uncovered early settlements at Otterböte. Little remains now, but a tangle of atmospheric walking trails criss-crosses the area. Nearby, the Sankta Anne Kyrka sits on the ruins of an ancient Franciscan monastery – a site replete with historical and spiritual import.
