STF Svartsö Skärgårdshotell & Vandrarhem

More about STF Svartsö Skärgårdshotell & Vandrarhem

Svartsö is located in the central part of the Stockholm archipelago and is with its length of about 10 km and width of about 2.5 km one of the slightly larger islands in the area. For generations, the island has had a central and recurring place in the history of the Archipelago and Stockholm. In the past, the islands and their inhabitants had different nicknames associated with animals. The people of Svartsö were, and are, proud pigs.

Today, Svartsö is a living archipelago island with a resident population of 65 people. Here you meet open agricultural landscapes and during spring and summer meadows are in full bloom. Both flora and fauna offer a lot. The rare King Bed Lily grows in a secluded place. The two large, clear lakes are home to both the great bustard and the beaver. It offers gravel roads and lush paths, swimming in the sea and lake as well as magical winter landscapes with ice skating. During the summer, our café is open in the reception and offers coffee and lunch. The fine gravel roads make the island accessible even for wheelchair users. We have function-adapted rooms and toilets. We are open and welcome guests all year round.

My name is Lotten and I run the business. My family, husband and two children, and I live all year round on Norra Stavsudda, an island 6 minutes away (15 minutes by own boat) south of Svartsö. Svartsö Skärgårdshotell & Vandrarhem is owned by four families on Svartsö who have invested time, land, energy and money for Svartsö's future. My fantastic colleagues are all full- or part-time residents in the Stockholm archipelago.
