Imagine a deep blue sea that awakens a longing for freedom, fresh breezes and adventure. In this beautiful archipelago it’s easy to find your favourite islands, whether you prefer peace and relaxation or exciting adventures.

Kayak enthusiasts with varying levels of experience flock to this unexploited
part of Sweden to paddle alone or in groups.The Östgöta archipelago consists of the Arkösund, St. Anna, Gryt and parts of Tjust archipelagos. You can explore the area by boat, car, public transport service (Östgötatrafiken) and boat tours. Thousands of islands
await you, many of them uninhabited except for a few grazing cows and sheep. The most popular and easily accessible locations are Arkösund, Tyrislöt, Fyrudden, Ekön, Stegeborg and the islands of Harstena and Häradskär.
