More about STF Aspö Lotstorn Hostel
Aspö is an island in the Karlskrona archipelago, to which a free ferry runs. Lotstornet was built in 1944 as an observation tower for seagoing pilots. The lower part then had the function of air-raid shelter, while the upper part gave an unobstructed view across the sea.
The three hostel cottages are embedded among cliffs and greenery below the look-out tower. Each cottage has six beds, with a sofa bed in the living room. One bedroom is on the ground floor, with two smaller bedrooms upstairs. Each cottage has en suite facilities, and a living room with sofa, TV and dining table. Each has also a kitchenette with two cooking rings and refrigerator. Note that the bedrooms at the hostel are small.
To see and do
Take the ferry to Karlskrona and visit the Maritime museum or view the many sights that have rendered the town a World heritage marking. Or stay on Aspö and take a ride on an Icelandic horse or visit Drottningskär, a citadel from the 17th century. There you can have dinner in a hall with meter thick stonewalls and then take a walk back to the tower in the light summer night. Sit a while in the lookout room on the top floor of the tower and enjoy the fantastic view of the archipelago and an unbroken horizon in the south.
