YOUR OWN ISLAND IN THE SWEDISH ARCHIPELAGO
Just a couple of hours boat ride away from Stockholm city, you find this isolated little island of Stora Kalholmen.
The old charming hostel lays upon a cliff and is overlooking a lagoon-like inlet created by two islands, little and great Kalholmen. There is a small bridge combining the islands and pathways leading between evergreens and blueberries in all directions. There are plenty of tranquil cliffs to sunbath from.
Except the wild animals there are no habitants on the island, no bars, no restaurants, just a little basic store in case you forgot something or need an icecream.
The hostel is opened from April to November. We cook in the comunitarian kitchen, wash our self in the sea and use primitive toilets. Less is more.
Come alone, with the family or book the whole house together with your friends. We are more than happy to help you make your visit a memorable stay.
You reach the island by boat from Stockholm, Ljusterö or with Nordsydlinjen.
The rooms: There are four rooms in the main building and four cottages with 2-6 beds in each, a total of 31 beds.
The kitchen: A fully equipped kitchen with a fantastic dining room and fireplace. Grills in the garden to enjoy when the sun is shining.
Groups: Together we will find a solution to realize the activities you have in mind for your group.
What to do: This is the perfect place to relax and experience the unique and genuine archipelago of Stockholm. Take a walk, have a sauna, meditate or simple ”to be”.
