Arholma, Norrtälje

Arholma is a legendary island with proud maritime traditions. Today, the entire island is a nature reserve and is owned and managed by The Archipelago Foundation. Arholma has a vibrant cultural community and, for those who are interested in Roslagen's building history, it's a real island paradise. Walk down to the old village street lined with buildings, some of which date back to the 1600s and will bring you back in time.
On Arholma, there are also many walking paths, both through woods and over meadows with grazing sheep and cattle. Along the way, you'll pass many well-preserved houses and small farms. The Bull-August farm is a lovely destination, as is the beacon where art is exhibited during the summer. The old church is also well worth a visit with its special history. If you come with your own boat, there is often plenty of room in one of the two guest harbours
