information about Pellinge the association
Pellinge Hembygdsförening rf was founded in 1936 by a group of active people from Pellinge. The task and aim of the association is to take care of the collection of historical material from the late 19th and early 20th century in order to exhibit how people in the archipelago lived in those days. At the same as we preserve the Pellinge culture and heritage we also work for an active and vital Pellinge of tomorrow.

Klovharun is a private property where landing is only allowed during the open house week, which during summer 2017 is week 29, i.e. from Saturday 15 July noon until Friday 21 July 7 p.m., daily between 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Please note new times!
During the open house week you can also privately visit the island with your own boat. Staying overnight is not possible. Commercial trips to the island are only allowed on special permission granted by Pellinge Hembygdsförening. All media representative visits are subject to a fee and should have a special permission granted by Pellinge Hembygdsförening. All inquiries should be sent well in advance to pellingeklovharun[at]gmail.com.
During other times the cottage is in private use and closed to visitors.
Private people can rent the cottage on a weekly basis from Saturday to Saturday. Applications for the next summer season (including arguments and wishes regarding timing) can be sent to pellingeklovharun[at]gmail.com in January and February the same year. The applications will be reviewed thereafter and the applicants will be informed in April. The rent in 2017 is 500 €/week.
Guided tours will be arranged to Klovharun during the open house week. Additional information on these trips will be published on this website at the beginning of the summer. Unfortunately we cannot accept advance bookings. The terrain is challenging for people with restricted mobility. Dogs, cats and other pets are not allowed on the island. All guided tours are arranged weather permitting.
