Svartso Ead0065 Svartso

Svartsö is an island with a live active archipelago community. You can explore the island by taking long walks through forests and open meadows, and along beautiful lakes and bays.

Alsvik is the main spot at Svartsö. Here you will find a well-stocked small convenience store, a guest harbour, and a bike rental. There are many alternatives to choose from to stay the night – at glamping tents at the local restaurant, at a hostel on the north side of the island, or in rental cabins at Alsvik. The restaurants Bistro Sågen and Svartsö krog offer fine dining in a genuine archipelago setting.
