STF Berguddens Fyrvaktarbostäder

Directions to STF Berguddens Fyrvaktarbostäder

You can reach Holmön almost any day of the year. In summer, the Norrfjärden - Byviken route is operated by the ferry Capella from Färjerederiets. The ferry departs 5 times daily. The travel time is 40 minutes.

If the winter ice is thick enough, the Vintergatan hovercraft comes into service, allowing you to get to us on Holmön even in winter. Do note that weather, wind and the prevailing ice conditions can put a temporary stop to transportation.

To get to the ferry terminal in Norrfjärden, take the E4 north from Umeå. At Sävar's northern exit, turn off and follow the signs to Norrfjärden/Passbåt Holmön. The driving time from Umeå is 30-40 minutes by car. Parking at the ferry terminal is free of charge. The route Umeå - Norrfjärden is also served by bus line 118/171 for special departures. A current timetable can be found at Länstrafiken in Västerbotten ( Then take the ferry from Norrfjärden further out to Holmön.

How to find the lighthouse

Bergudden is the westernmost outpost of Holmön. From Byviken, the ferry terminal on the Holmö side, it is 3 km down to Bergudden and the lighthouse. Follow the local road past fields and meadows and turn off to take the road through the forest down to Bergudden and the lighthouse. A lovely journey to the destination. Follow the signs to Bergudden.

Please note that there are currently no taxis or public transports operating on Holmön. To get around - and to reach us - the best means of transport is a bicycle. Take your own bike on the ferry or rent one from Holmöns Båtmuseum when you arrive at the port (rental is also possible during the low season when the museum is closed).
