There are several boats that can be chartered from Kasnäs and Rosala to Bengtskär from May to September. Charters are booked from Bengtskär Ltd. The ships vary in size, the smallest fits 10 and the largest 75 passengers. See pictures to the left. The cost of the boat transfer is a little bit larger than in the daily cruise, since the boat is reserved for your group only, and the time-table is planned according to your needs. Contact us and we will plan a day tailor-made for you! More information about our booking office services can be found here.

Landing with your own boat

For private boats we recommend landing on Bengtskär only during very calm weather, as there is no guest harbour. The jetty is reserved for the lighthouse's own cruise and service transports at all times.

We ask any four-legged passengers to stay in the boat during the visit. This is especially important before the end of June, as there are hundreds of eiders nesting on the island.

Opening hours are 10am to 7pm during the summer, between June 3rd and August 27th. Entrance fee including a history presentation is 8 € / person, children 4 € ( 4-14 years )


Weather reservation applies to all boat transfers to Bengtskär.

Rights to price and time-table changes are reserved.
