Utö

Visit Stockholm

A popular year-round island in the outer southern archipelago known for its beaches. Utö has Sweden’s oldest iron mines with old, preserved miner’s dwellings and a mining museum. The island also boasts the well-known Utö Wärdshus with a hotel, hostel, and restaurant, and nearby is good swimming from the rocks in Rävstavik Bay. Try renting a bike and going to Ålö Island just south of Utö. Enjoy the white sandy beach and eat at Båtshaket. Be sure to buy a loaf of the renowned Utö bread from the bakery before the trip home.
