So the next stop on our archipelago journey is Nåttarö! Nåttarö is
one of the southern most islands in the Stockholm archipelago. It is
easily reached via Nynashamn (a town 58 kilometers south of Stockholm
connected by the commuter train) with only a thirty minute boat ride.
From there you may also island hop to the other islands in the southern
archipelago during the summer months. Perfect for a weekend getaway! In
the summertime you will find a small store, restaurant/bar and daily
activities.

The best place to stay on the island is in one of fifty summer cabins that are dispersed throughout the island. Also available is a newly opened hostel and if nature is more your thing, there are several places to camp.

Nåttarö is made up of sand and pine forests as well as being a nature
reserve. There are countless places to go hike throughout the island thanks to its topography, ensuring you will not find yourself bored or without activities! The island has a great variety of flora and fauna and home to many animals and bird life.

If fun in the sun is what you are after, then you will find yourself surrounded by several miles of sandy beaches including rocks and cliffs, where you will have the opportunity to cliff jump if you please. Rowboats are also available to hire during the summer months, a perfect way to unwind and watch the sun
set in the land of the midnight sun!
