About Haparanda skärgårds national park

Haparanda Skärgård National Park was formed in 1995 and is part of the Norrbotten archipelago near the Finnish border.

The largest island in the national park is Sandskär, an island with varied nature and an intriguing history that includes seal hunters and shipwrecked sailors. The park has an area of 60 square kilometres.

The purpose of the national park is to preserve a unique archipelago landscape in essentially untouched condition.
