Runmarö is a lively island of exciting and varying nature that has inspired many artists including Tranströmer, Strindberg, Forsell, and Törneman. Commonly known as "the author's island," Runmarö is one of the nearest islands in the Värmdö archipelago; the boat trip from Stavsnäs takes just 10 minutes and the boats go regularly all year round.

In summer, the meadows bloom orchids and Runmarö can show off 27 different species. Runmarö showcases a very exciting and varied nature, and the island actually has nine lakes, although they call them marshes here. One of these is the Magical Silver Swamp, which was acknowledged by Strindberg.

Runmarö is a great starting point for kayak tours. On the southern part of the island, by Solberga Gård, you can rent kayaks, shop for handmade crafts in the farm shop, or enjoy the view from the garden café. Telegrafberget - the island's highest point can also be found there. It's a popular destination with breathtaking views of all the outward islands.
