As for activities and adventures, the Stockholm Archipelago offers endless possibilities, from sailing aboard a skippered 35 foot tri-maran to embarking on an unforgettable sea safari, on the search for seals, sea eagles and other weird and wonderful creatures. Over on dry land, there’s no chance of getting bored either. Check out the island’s two beaches, or explore your new habitat by following old military patrol tracks to really make the most of the island’s diverse landscape. Depending the season, there’s even the chance to pick berries or mushrooms – whatever takes your fancy. For corporate events, why not plan a fire walk for an event that’s sure to get everybody talking. Alternatively, if you think that walking on coals is too hot to handle, jump in the 40°C wood-fired tub and bask in bubbling waters with a cool beer and even cooler views of waterways beyond. 

The best time to enjoy the Island Lodge Bergholmen is during summer months when the weather is perfect conditions for camping.  Ready to pack your bags?   The Island Lodge Bergholmen is located only 40 minutes from the centre of Stockholm via boat transfer, allowing for an convenient connection for any international guests. For those passing through Vaxholm, the passenger ship hub is another option, located only 10 – 15 minutes from the island itself. Stockholm certainly serves as a more practical solution, however, and is a great point of departure, particularly if jumping aboard the island’s own 35 foot trimaran.
