Ängsö National Park


Ängsö became a national park 1909 and is one of the oldest parks in Europe. The island is located in a famous part of the Stockholm Archipelago known as Roslagen. The park was established in order to preserve a beautiful example of a traditional farm landscape with flowering hay meadows and wooded pastures.

In the spring, there is a profusion of brightly-coloured flowers. Ospreys and sea eagles are often seen above the island, which is only accessible by boat.

What to see

Ängsö national park contains most elements of Roslagen’s natural and cultural history. There is a network of easily walked, marked trails. During summer, when the ground is hard and dry, the larger trails are accessible to wheelchairs and stroller. At Hemudden, where the ferries dock, there is a small visitors’ centre with an exhibition about the island’s natural and cultural history.

There are no restaurants or shops on the island so plan accordingly.
