The Jungfruskär group of islands, located in the middle of Skiftet, is regarded as one of the brightest jewels of Archipelago National Park. It is an excellent stopover for those planning to cross Skiftet. From the sea, Jungfruskär looks barren, but it boasts an abundance of species and lush vegetation. Nature and life on the islands in the old days can be explored on a nature trail and from an observation tower. Island can be reached only by boat.
For boaters there is a harbour with campfire site, camping site, picnic tables and toilet.
National parks are nature reserves, whose key task is to safeguard biodiversity and enable people to enjoy and relax in nature on the terms of nature conservation. All national parks in Finland are managed by Metsähallitus.
