Sandhamn

A day trip from Stockholm or island-hopping with nord-sydlinjen we reached Sandhamn island. One of the more popular islands of the archipelago, a well known sailing destination and also the party-place of the islands.

Sandhamn has a very nice and charming small village, perfect to just stroll around. There are nice sandy beaches within walking distance and a lively marina with a variety of private boats but also a station for Swedish coastal guards and sea pilots makes the font. Activities on Sandhamn takes place on water: sailing, RIB boats open water fishing or around bars and restaurants serving all the classics as fried Baltic herring, Skagenröra, and bookmakers toast.

Accomodation in the archipelago could be, as we say in Sweden, “allt från slott till koja”, meaning anything from castle to hut or in this case a campsite.

We are proud to present one of the hotels that we work together with: Häringe Slott. Nominated of their guests, to one of the best castle hotels in Sweden 2019.
