Welcome to Roslagen - the Coastal Countryside of Stockholm!
Roslagen is the archipelago, the ironworks, small towns and the sea. This gem includes idyllic Öregrund, Grisslehamn and Ljusterö, charming smaller destinations offering everything from fishing and festivals to delicacies and design.
In Roslagen's fabulous archipelago, with nearly 13,000 islands, you can enjoy a vibrant archipelago landscape with nature reserves, national parks and authentic archipelago buildings. The region offers plenty of events, all year round.
The name Roslagen comes from the word “rodzlag” which in coastal Uppland is an old word for a rowing crew of warrior oarsmen. Roslagen includes the municipalities of Vaxholm, Österåker, Norrtälje and Östhammar.
