About us

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 four course dinner at the restaurant Svartsö Krog, fall asleep to the calming sounds of the nature and the sea, then wake up to a full breakfast served in a basket and delivered to your tent the following morning.

The lodge consists of three 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.
