  • Pleasant archipelago stay with excellent cycling and walking opportunities and even canoeing along the coast. Good Inn with good food and good location. Interesting history, including mining. Home of Utölimpan!

  • We had a one-day visit/conference there in September. Nice facilities and good food make it a place to remember.  more »
  • A nice island, which you cam visit all year round. In summer do to camp and swim or at Christmas eating butter farm table at the Inn. From Central stockholm requires only a simpler planning for the visit. Clearly worth the visit for tourists, then msn experience the archipelago.
