Ängsö National Park

Ängsö - an idyllic piece of old Sweden. Ängsö was the first national park in Europe. The island has lush grazing pastures and blooming meadows with over 400 plants species, many of them orchids. Ängsö Island offers a fair and pleasant archipelago environment with all of the colourful floral displays for which the Roslagen archipelago is known. It is an unusual type of national park – a cultural landscape from the 19th century, well preserved and exceptionally authentic. OVERNIGHT STAYS You cannot spend the night on Ängsö. But, if you come in your own boat and put in at the guest jetty at Hemudden or in some of the coves around the island, you are welcome to stay overnight.

Roslagsleden trail

Discover Roslagen’s unique natural and cultural delights along the Roslagsleden trail between Stockholm/Danderyd and Grisslehamn on the Sea of Åland. The trail offers almost 190 km of hiking past ancient settlements dotted with runestones, through pristine forests with crystal clear lakes, across fields of cows and sheep, past historical sites with churches and castles, through protected countryside with rare flora and fauna and along a coastline of rocks, shingle, sand and an endlessly beautiful sea. All the way along Roslagsleden there are plenty of places to stay overnight – everything from simple shelters to youth hostels. There are also campsites, B&Bs, cottages and hotels. The trail is marked by a band of orange painted on the trees. Occasionally signposts also guide the way and give distances. You’ll find an information board at the start and end of every section.

Roslagsleden runs through the municipalities of Danderyd, Sollentuna, Täby, Vallentuna, Österåker and Norrtälje, which are also responsible for the upkeep of the trail.
