Arholma - historic holiday paradise

Arholma is one of the northern archipelago’s largest islands and the last outpost on the journey out to open sea.

Today, much of the island is a nature reserve managed by the Archipelago Foundation. Among the interesting sights is the beautiful midsummer pole, in the form of a fully rigged mast. And then there is Arholma beacon, Roslagen’s most famous navigation mark, which was built in 1768 and later turned into a pilot look out tower and optical telegraph with views all the way to Åland. Today it is a gallery for art and handicrafts.

Also worth a visit is the old cargo boat harbour, Österhamn as well as Simesgården and Bull-Augusts gård, a typical Roslagen farm. Or why not stop at the open-air dance floor? Here you will find a café and recently opened restaurant with panoramic sea views.
