Experience Utö and Ålö in Stockholm's southern archipelago by bicycle. Here you cycle on winding gravel roads in beautiful nature through forests and pastures or along the water. The island is perfect for discovering by bike. The road that runs along the entire island, between Ålö in the south and Gruvbyn in the north, offers a varied beautiful landscape with forest, meadows and sea.
I paketet ingår en trerätters middag på anrika, välrenommerade Utö Värdshus och övernattning i charmiga hotellstugor eller pittoreska Stenhotellet och Kvarnvillan, och så klart en fantastisk frukostbuffé att starta dagen med. Priset inkluderar hotellboende en natt med del i dubbelrum/familjerum. För barnfamiljen finns det tillgång till barncyklar och extrasäng för barnen.
Boat connections are available depending on the season from Nynäshamn, Årsta Brygga and Strömkajen in central Stockholm (boat travel is not included in the price). It is possible to bring your bike on board the Waxholmsbolaget's boats. Here you will find Waxholmsbolaget's timetables for archipelago traffic. Here is a mapfrom Utö Tourist Office and here you can see the film about Utö.
In Gruvbyn there are several restaurants, bakeries and activities but with a few hours by bike you also reach unique sandy beaches or a cliff just for yourself. In the small mining museum next to the inn you can follow interesting parts of Utö's history, and there is also a museum shop. The mine museum is close to several of the quarries and the many powerful warp piles that characterize the landscape.
In a beautiful hillside down towards Mysingen lies Lurgatan with its red little cottages. The cottages were built in the mid-1700s after many homes were destroyed by Russians who ravaged the island. There were two families of miners in each cottage. Utö church is the archipelago's largest stone church and was erected in the middle of the 19th century after drawings by Johan Fredrik Åbom (he has also designed Bern's lounges, Hasselbacken and the Musical Academy in Stockholm). The organ is considered to be the oldest preserved in Sörmland.
Utö's perhaps best known building is the mill. It has been a trademark and symbol of Utö since it was built in 1791. During the summer months the mill opens and then you can enjoy the fantastic view.
After a delicious breakfast, spend the morning with relaxation or exciting activities. In the afternoon, you can travel with Waholmsbolaget to Nynäshamn, Årsta Brygga or Strömkajen in Stockholm (boat trip is not included in the price).
The trip takes about an hour, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the fine archipelago while melting the impressions of your cycling adventure. Food and coffee are available on board.
