Stones full of surprises
Stones may symbolise permanency, but boulders do not. It might sound unbelievable but the giant rocks found on the islands once migrated there from the far north.
However, not every big rock is a boulder! Only rocks with a diameter of at least 10 metres can be called boulders. Both Väike and Suur-Pakri islands have their own star boulders called Suurkivi, with a breath-taking diameter of 21 metres.
NB! Folklore says that whichever Suurkivi you touch will help you fulfil your heart’s desire. Come and try this for yourself!
What else is there to see on Pakri islands?
In addition to the boulders, you will find meadows with rich flora. Among the rarer plants, the fen orchid – one of the orchids on the island, and the sand pink can be found. In spring, you can admire the blooming convallaria fields.
The Pakri Islands, which are protected, are home to many exciting bird species. The attentive guest can meet the long-tailed duck, the great crested grebe, lark, Falconiformes and many others – even the sea eagle.
How to visit?
The islands can be reached by boat from Kurkse haven on the Arabella, which seats up to 11 passengers.
