The County Administrative Board, with the help of local farmers, make sure that there are livestock grazing and keeps meadows and open fields in order. We have a lovely herd of sheep on Tjärö, that walks around grazing and keep most of the tussocks in order during the summer. The cows tend to be found at the southern end of the island and the rabbits are spoiled by the chefs with crispy carrots and the finest salad. Please help us ensure that they are living a happy life. Apart from domestic animals, there is a rich bird life around the island for the ornithologists who venture out into the archipelago. You can also see everything from deer in the morning light, to snakes hiding in the stone fence.
If you would like to exercise on Tjärö, you can. We have two marked hiking trails on the island.

On the island, Stigmännen have placed about ten orientation stations and free maps are available for you on the ferry and in the reception. Do not forget to register your check-points! You can also choose to follow an animal trail and see what it leads to, or follow the water’s edge by jumping up on the rocks. Whatever you choose you will get a mix of pleasure and exercise!

It goes without saying that you need to take at least one swim in the sea when being on Tjärö!
We don’t offer long sandy beaches, but the small bays with fine sandy ocean floors can be found in the north, in the south and everywhere in between. In the north, we have Ällingaviken that are surrounded by meadows and ancient oak trees. The bay is facing the archipelago and are protected from strong winds coming from the open sea.
Pellakrok on the west side of the island has large grassy areas to jump and run for the one that don’t want to take a swim. The views are amazing and for the daring one, we have the “death rock” at Korpaberget. Here you can climb up to a height of 12 meters and jump into the blue abyss. But everything is at your own risk…
For families, Nabben is a popular spot where you bathe from low cliffs with shallow depths. For those who wants to find your own personal favorite cliff, Tjärö has lots of lovely places to choose from.
