Svedjehamn
Björköby

Björköby is located approximately 16 km north from Replot village. Due to its strategic location between Finland and Sweden, Björköby has played an important role in terms of transportation over the Kvarken. In 1616, the post traffic commenced from Björköby to Sweden and continued for approximately 200 years.

Köklot-Värlax
From Alskat it is possible to drive the 13 km long winding road over bridges and causeways out to Köklot and Värlax. Improved road connections to the mainland have made it possible for this archipelago community to survive the centralization of society.


Norra Vallgrund
The peaceful village Norra Vallgrund is fairly centrally located on the island known as Replot, approximately 7 km from Replot village. Norra Vallgrund has more than 300 inhabitants. The traditional livelihoods are fishing, seal hunting, agriculture and handicrafts, but today many people commute to their jobs on the mainland.
