Hotell Ead0024 Orskar

Örskär is located furthest north in the Stockholm archipelago. The island is quiet and beautiful with barren cliffs and a lighthouse that dominates the skyline.

During the summer season you can visit the lighthouse, take a guided tour and let yourself be mesmerized by the stunning panoramic view. Below the lighthouse there is a well-preserved idyllic archipelago village that used to be the residences of the sea pilots and lighthouse keepers. Nowadays the village houses are used as overnight rentals for those who wish to spend the night on the island. In the summer, the local restaurant serves both lunch and dinner. 

A hiking trail runs between the jetty Passbåtsbryggan and the lighthouse and there are several other marked trails that take you to different parts of the island. At the Archipelago Foundation jetty there are a couple of mooring spots, but please keep in mind that it is not possible to reserve these spots.
