Landsort is the most southerly outpost of the Stockholm Archipelago. The island is 5 km long and 0.5 km wide. It's most famous for its lighthouse, Landsorts fyr, built in the 1670s and today Sweden´s oldest preserved lighthouse.
The island has several interesting sights and its unusual nature, flora and fauna are unlike anything in the Stockholm Archipelago. Here you´ll find barren rocky areas and verdant vegetation, including whitebeam, yew and arctic bramble.
The island has 22 permanent residents but in summer it springs to life, and the population skyrockets. The hostel and the bed and breakfast in the old pilot´s tower offer pleasant accommodation for visitors to the island.
