Baggen, Piteå (South)
Baggen is one of the largest of the islands of Piteå. Here you will find an outdoor chapel, and cabins owned by the parish of Piteå that can be rented for overnight stays. The high steep outcrops and the sandy bays in between on the southwest side of the island are suitable for swimming.
When you are sailing along the large waterway from the south, set your course for 024o from the green buoy with topmark towards the leading beacons on Baggen. If you are travelling on the large waterway from the north, turn starboard and you will soon see the leading beacons on Baggen.
Near the cabins at Själahällan you will find the remains from an energetic priest’s mining attempts sometime around the end of the 18th century. At Själahällan there is a public jetty and wind shelter, as well as access to an outhouse toilet and fireplace.
