Nice Areas to Stay Close to Stockholm

(4 answers)
By Tara Traveller June 27, 2018

Can you please recommend a nice, romantic place to stay on an island not too far from Stockholm (we're staying a couple of days in the city) and would love to get away from the city and stay somewhere pretty and a bit more quiet where we could take long hikes/walks and have great food? We're arriving from Northern California July 14th. Thank you!!!

You can also try Grinda or Vaxholm. Sandhamn is further out in the archipelago but have nice hikes, sandy beaches and cliffs. Also three restaurants.

Ideal for a 48h excursion; Mariefred with Gripsholms Royal Castle and idyllic small town athmosphere. Stay at the upscale ”Gripsholms Världshus” or the camping grounds. Daily 100 year old steamer s/s Mariefred (4h) or national rail gets you there in just over an hour

Utö is a good suggestion, or Möja.
