Background

Emsalö (Emäsalö in Finnish) is one of the larger islands of the Pellinge archipelago, about 50km east of Helsinki. Comprising many thousands of low lying granite rocks, skerries and islands, the scenery is spectacularly beautiful and the islands of the archipelago range in size from several square kilometres of dense pine forests to small barren rocks extending far into the Gulf of Finland. Summers are short, warm & sunny (usually!); winters long, dark and frozen (always!).
