Hiking The estate has several beautiful nature paths of various lengths and levels. The routes are marked on maps that can be obtained at Café Vivan or from Söderlångvik’s website. Fill your picnic basket at Café Vivan and make a beeline for the lean-to shelter ”Vindskyddet” on the hill approximately 2 km from the farm. The view of the archipelago is stunning.
Jazz and classical concerts are organised in the newly renovated Café Vivan. An exhibition by artist and photographer Niclas Warius entitled ”Vanitas Chimitoensis” is shown in the café. Many cultural or local food events are organised throughout the year such as the popular Apple Days in September. The yoga courses take place outdoors on the lawn or indoors instead of on the manor house balcony. New this year is the half marathon, Broloppet (Dalsbruk–Kasnäs), where the shorter walking stage starts at the estate for the first time. A new bird
watching course is organised in May, apple picking days and wine evenings during the autumn. The manor house art museum is closed for renovation. Söderlångvik manor was cultural patron and businessman Amos Anderson’s summer residence and second home. Andrerson bequeathed the estate and other assets to the association Föreningen Konstsamfundet which he founded. The stylish manor is one of the Kimitoön Islands’ most popular visitor attractions.
