Ramsholmen − verdant wooded meadows with a scent of the sea and ramson
Ramsholmen is covered in wooded meadows, the most diverse type of habitat in Åland. In spring and summer the floral splendour is stunning with wild anemones, ramsons, snake’s heads and cowslips. There are mazes of hazelnut bushes, past pollard ash-trees and coastal meadows with orchids and other rare species. The abundance of strong-smelling, garlicky ramson has probably given the area its name. In July the meadows are mowed in the traditional manner. Sea fowl, waders, hole nesters and other species breed or search for food in the rich grounds of the wooded meadow. To the east of Ramsholmen is Torpfjärden, a sea bay with some of the finest bird life.
