ARK56 is a network of trails in the Blekinge Archipelago Biosphere Reserve, designated by UNESCO for its unique natural and cultural values. You will be led through the Blekinge archipelago, along the water. 16 hubs connect the trails and offer food, accommodation, and experiences. At a service hub, you can rent a canoe, kayak, or bicycle, for example, if you want to change modes of transport. Follow ARK56 on Facebook to stay updated.

You will find detours and sites to discover in the app. In a kayak, you can go between skerries, around islands and headlands. You glide through a world heritage site and a unique archipelago where the forest goes all the way down to the beach. The app provides suggestions for routes, rounds, and rest areas.
