The best glamping spots around Stockholm

If you prefer the great outdoors to come complete with creature comforts such as proper beds, luxury linen, wood-fired stoves and breakfast delivered to your door, glamping could be the thing for you. Glamping - "'glamorous camping" - is a relatively new concept in Sweden but a few places have hopped on the trend in recent years, providing luxurious accommodation in canvas bell tents in beautiful natural surroundings. Whether you fancy a lake view in the Sörmland countryside or a seafront position in the Stockholm archipelago, our guide will lead you to the best places to spend the night under the stars without having to wrestle with tent poles or soggy sandwiches.

Fejan Canvas Hotel

On the edge of the open sea

Four canvas tents (Number 4 is larger, perfect for families), complete with wood-burning stoves, sit on platforms looking out over the outer archipelago. A breakfast basket is brought to your tent in the morning and, during high season, a chef cooks a communal dinner for guests over open fire.

Svartsö Logi

Sleep to the sounds of the sea

Take the ferry out to Svartsö, a 1,5-2 hr boat ride from Nybrokajen and, after a four course dinner at Svartsö Krog, you can bed down in one of three sea-facing canvas tents. Each tent sleeps up to four people and all are cosily equipped with thick duvets, heaters, fur rugs and atmospheric lanterns.

Sund Nergården

Lakeside idyll

As well as seven hotel rooms, this charming bed and breakfast outside Trosa has two glamping tents open in the summer months.
