About Pellinki

Pellinki is an active archipelago and village community with a variety of services and events.  Pellinki has today a firm settlement of close to 300 people, a daycare center, a shop with post office and pharmacy, a private chapel, an active volunteer fire department and much more that we can be proud of.  The majority of the population speak Swedish (hence the name ”Pellinge” and ”Skärgårdsjul” in Swedish).

It is an year round operating insular community and it goes way back in  history in areas such as fishing and boat building. The sea has been a major employer through out time for the population on the island, and it has  also been an important source of inspiration for both writers as artists.

How to get to Pellinki?

Drive from Porvoo centre to the south with route number 1552.  Keep going 28 kilometers to Tirmo and the ferry (free of charge).

The duration of a Porvoo-Pellinki drive takes approx. 40 minutes in the winter. The ferry runs four times an hour with some exceptions and the trip across the strait takes about 5 minutes. On Pellinki all events are well signposted and near the main road. On Sat, Dec 22 there will be guides at the ferry harbor in Tirmo. http://goo.gl/maps/1QXgz
