Travel to Märket lighthouse!

Märket lighthouse was designed by Georg Schreck and built by Russian initiative in 1885. The border between Sweden and Finland was drawn straight over the small island in 1809. The lighthouse was built on Swedish territory west of the center of the island but strangely never been considered as Swedish.

During the 1980's there was a boarder adjustment so that the lighthouse, belonging to Finland, now stands on finnish grounds. The new border is one of Europe's most remarkable ones. Neither Sweden or Finland wanted to change the countries land size or coastlines so a trade of land was made.The island is the world's smallest with shared territory.

The island was inhabitet by lighthouse keepers until 1976.
Finnish Lighthouse Society began restoration of the lighthouse in the summer of 2007 and during the summers volunteer lighthouse keepers live on the island.

Travel with us to Märket during the summer!
The tour is 4-5 hours with 2 hour of traveltime, during which we often spot seals.
On the island you can se the strange boarder, you get a guided tour of the lighthouse and coffe.
