To think of when visiting Birka

The water around Björkö belongs to an archaeological area. Therefore, anchoring is forbidden in the bay, and 50 meters from the shore. We want the noise level to be kept down between the 23:00 and 06:00.
There are fire restrictions throughout Björkö, but if you feel like grilling there are existing barbecue places adjacent to the marina pier.
