Tips for a successful visit on Holmön
First of all, you should plan for a longer stay; perhaps in a charming rectory, in beautiful Berguddens lighthouse or why not for free in a plain fiskebastu?! For those looking for that special something, we recommend a visit to the island Stora Fjäderägg and its hostel in the island’s old lighthouse keeper’s accommodation. Read more about accommodation on Holmön here.
Biking is the ideal way of getting around on Holmön. By bike it is easy to get by along the narrow roads and to get a closer experience of the beautiful village center. One can either bring one’s own bike along on the Holmö ferry – if it is not too crowded – or one can rent a bike at Holmön’s boat museum. Hiking is also something that we recommend and encourage. Large parts of Holmön are nature reserves with marked trails, taking the visitor to secluded and undisturbed nature. Read more about the nature reserve here.
