Molpehällorna

The Molpehällorna island consists of four smaller islands that have grown together as a result of land uplift. The island housed a coast guard station until the 1970s.
On the rocky island, there are rugged juniper groves, but also lush land uplift forests and shallow lagoons and gloe lakes that provide food and shelter for a large number of archipelago birds.
