Why locals love it
Located just 15 minutes from Slussen in the Nacka nature reserve, Hellasgården attracts locals with its pristine lake, endless expanses of forest, inexpensive sauna and extensive walking, running, cycling and skiing tracks.
Why you should visit it
If you’re looking to escape the hubbub of inner city Stockholm for an afternoon, head to Hellasgården to swim, walk, picnic and relax among locals. For all you brave souls, they even maintain an ice hole for bathing during the winter months!
If you visit towards the end of summer, keep a lookout for wild berries growing just off the walking paths.
