The pace is different here, in the middle of the beautiful lake landscape, only half an hour south of Linköping. Vårdnäs Stiftsgård is more than just a hotel with a restaurant and conference center – it is a place for meetings, rest, natural adventures and good food. The nature is magical and offers a number of nature reserves with untouched primeval forest, Gustav Vasa’s oak landscape, long and exciting footbridges in the “tropics of eastern Götaland”, the Kinda canal and numerous lakes. The area is perfect for those who want to explore hiking in eastern Götaland. Roam freely on small paths surrounded by beautiful nature reserves, or plan your hike along the terrain-friendly hiking trails such as Östgötaleden.
Here you stay comfortably, with nature and tranquility just outside your window. During lunch and breakfast you can enjoy a delicious cooked meal in a relaxing environment, with the Kinda Canal and Lake Stora Rängen just outside your window.
The staff here at Vårdnäs have a common vision of giving both our guests and ourselves a better day – every day. We look at our business from an ecological perspective, always searching for new ways to reduce the burden on our amazing world – after all, Earth’s resources are famously limited.
We are open all year. A warm welcome to us and our beautiful part of Östergötland.
