8: 00: Boat trip to Maakalla island.
Maakalla island lies offshore 17 kilometres from the coast of Kalajoki. The island began to rise from the sea in the 16th century. The newborn island was a good basement for the fishermen who came there to catch Baltic herring. Soon there was a fishermen community owned by the Swedish King who gave his orders how to rule there. These orders are still valid. You can feel the historic atmosphere there and make acquaintance with the living of the fishermen during the guided tour on the island.
There is an old wooden church with a small vicarage from those days. On the island we have some packed snacks with coffee/tea or smoked fish served by a fisherman.
