Average time to visit
Stockholm is a year round destination but is at its best in spring and summer. From May to September temperatures are warm, early twenties but in the height of summer can reach up to 30 degrees and the sun doesn't set until around 10:30pm, rising at around 3:00am so you can really pack a lot in! Island Lodge is closed from the end of October until the beginning of May.
To start planning your holiday to Island Lodge
Island Lodge is a luxury tented camp in the Stockholm archipelago, about 40 minutes by boat from Sweden's capital. It is on its own private island, you will take the camp exclusively on an all-inclusive basis, making it a wonderful private hideaway.
Island Lodge is an amazing blend of designer hotel, safari lodge and campsite and is located on the private island of Bergholmen. There are a number of ways of getting to Island Lodge, from taking the speedboat from Vaxholm, a longer 2-3 hour sailing trip from the centre of Stockholm or if you really want to arrive in style, then you can opt for a private helicopter.
The island has eight bespoke tents, accommodating up to 16 people, so is ideal for a family or group. The luxury tents are spread out in the pine forest which engulfs the island and have been stylishly furnished with wooden floors, reindeer skins, wood stoves and luxury bedding. Each tent offers twin or double bedded accommodation. Close to the tents are modern bathrooms with wash-basins and outdoor showers (with hot water).
