Take a day trip to Stockholm with the local ferry service!

Evening Activities

The Sauna will take approximately 1hr to heat up. There is fresh water in the sauna for washing or just go bathing in the sea as this is perfectly clean.

  • Camp fires
  • Sauna experience
  • Watch the sun set and take an evening swim on the north side of the island

Kayak or Canoe trips

We have one kayak for 2 people and one canoe for 3 people. A trip between the islands early in the morning beats most nature experiences. We have maps with several scenic routes that will give you an amazing view and the freedom to go ashore and explore other islands. Why not bring a bring a pack lunch for a days outing and swim from the rocks.

 

 

Fishing

Gällnö Cabins is also run as a luxury fishing camp during fishing seasons, making it the prefect place to bring your gear or borrow ours. Booked fishing tours are available and you can rent our guide boats if you do not have your own. This is a Catch & Release camp, meaning all pike must be released and immediately put back in the water. Unless you intend to cook one or two for dinner the same evening.

 

Stockholm Fishing Camp >>

 

We catch 10-20 pikes on a normal day depending on the time of year. Average weight is approx 2-3kg but almost every fishing trip we catch pikes weighing 6-8kg. In early spring and late autumn specimens weighing more than 10kg is not unusual.

 

If you plan on drinking alcohol during the day, please book a guide, as drinking whilst driving a boat is strictly against the law
