Landsort, or Öja as the island is really called, is located furthest south in the Stockholm archipelago. Here you can enjoy beautiful nature, a rich animal life and a genuine archipelago village. 

The island has a country shop and two restaurants, and if you want to stay overnight there are rental cabins, a hostel, and a bed & breakfast. You can have a swim in the ocean from cliffs and take a stroll across the island on paths that run from north to south. The most famous attraction on the island is the magnificent lighthouse which is Sweden’s oldest. Nearby is the tall pilot tower where you can stay overnight in the spectacular hotel. Another popular spot is Batteri Landsort, an underground military facility from the cold war which has been converted into a museum.
