Svartsö Logi is a small canvas tent lodge on the island of Svartsö, right in the heart of the Stockholm archipelago. In our comfortable furnished canvas tents we offer our guests a relaxed over night experience with unique closeness to the beautiful archipelago nature, just a stone’s throw from the shoreline. We want to offer an experience that passes on the sence of freedom and tranquility of the nature and the sea, with some personal touch and natural comfort. Our ambition is to provide you with the same comfort as in a hotel, but in a little more rustic and natural way.
At Svartsö Logi you stay with full board included – Enjoy a five course dinner at the restaurant Svartsö Krog, fall asleep to the calming sounds of the nature and the sea, then wake up to a lovely breakfast served in a basket and delivered to your tent the following morning.
Our lodge consists of canvas tents mounted on wooden deckings, each with a small furnished private terrace in front facing the sea.
The tents are all personally furnished with rugs and sheepskins on the floor, real beds with warm down duvets and pillows, electric heating, lanterns and a lot of atmosphere.
Each tent is 5 metres in diameter, and holds 4 beds: one double bed (160 cm), and 2 single beds (80 cm) that can be used if you are 3-4 persons.
Lodging for adults: 2250 kr/person & night

-Lodging in the tent with made bed and bath towel
-Our breakfast basket served right by your tent in the morning

(Please note that Svartsö Krog has no separate kids menu, but all courses on the á la carte menu can be accustomed and made half size.)
Babies always sleep for free, but note that we do not have baby beds, you need to bring your own sleeping arrangement for babies (if they don’t sleep in the existing adult bed.)
Also older kids can always share existing bed with adults for no additional cost, kids breakfast and bath towel on the house if they sleep in existing booked beds.
Additional price for kids sleeping in own bed is 750 kr/bed, including own bedding, bath towel & kids breakfast.
