The Russians will get no further than this! That was the thinking when Siaröfortet was built after the First World War. These days the fort is its own island offering wonderful experiences and relaxation.
The hostel lies on magical Kyrkogårdsö (Church Garden Island), in the middle of the channel between Vaxholm and Furusund. It is a paradise for enthusiastic and adventure-seeking adults and children. The hostel is located in carefully renovated barracks dating from 1916, and has a fully equipped and modern kitchen. Guests can swim, fish and rent a boat or enjoy the wood heated sauna by the water. A guided tour is arranged daily in and around the old fort. For guests staying several nights, the hostel is the perfect starting point for day trips to Ängsö national park and the islands of Saltkråkan, Fejan, Arholma, Svartlöga and Rödlöga.
STF Vandrarhem Siaröfortet’s rooms are located in a carefully refurbished early 1900s building. All rooms have wooden floors and access to shared toilets and showers in a neighbouring building.
The hostel’s restaurant serves Swedish cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. During warmer months, outdoor seating is available. Guests can prepare their own meals in the fully equipped shared kitchen.
Other facilities include a TV room and a bookable wood-burning sauna. Canoes are available for rent on site.
