If you want to experience a typical fishing community, you should visit Käringön. About 130 people live here all year round. 180 of the island’s 200 houses were built before 1920. There are no street names on Käringön. Each house has instead been given a number and the number serves as an address.
A walrus, which was transported to the island by a summer guest, stands by the bridge as a portal.
The houses have been built very densely. A nice hike is to walk from the bridge up to Lotsutkiken. Along the road you will find small outbuildings and garden plots in the same condition as in the 19th century. One of the fishermen’s cottages is furnished as a museum. Käringön has a grocery store, smokehouse, fish shop, restaurants, cafes, bar, galleries, museum, craft stalls and more.
