The Grinda Island

The Grinda Island

Grinda is yet another dreamlike island located in the Stockholm archipelago with charming inlets, bays, and lush forests. By an express boat, through Vaxholm, it takes about an hour to get to the island. The nature reserve is owned by the Archipelago Foundation. You can rent a kayak at any time as one of the offered activities on the island. We highly recommend all mountaineering and hiking activities. If you are visiting during summer, be sure to bring your bathing suit and enjoy sand beaches and swimming. During winter you should definitely try floating saunas. And if you enjoy bird’s eye views, the island has two phenomenal lookouts that will take your breath away.

On the Grinda Gard farm you may see chicken, cows, sheep in their natural habitats. In the village store you can buy eggs, vegetables, meat and sheep leather, but they are open only during summer. Grinda also has a harbour for guests, the “Framfickan” dock, Grinda Wärdshus inn, a store, a café, hotels, youth hostels and camps.
Grinda is one of the most unique islands in the archipelago, it even has its own clothing line and a DJ who plays music in the middle of a field. You will enjoy the visit!
