Did you know that "Little Hawaii" is outside Karlskrona? The island is actually called Hasslö but feels like Hawaii, though with a Swedish touch of course. Also, take the opportunity to explore Blekinge's largest island of Sturkö, which has plenty of excursion destinations. Sweden's southeastern island group Utklippan offers accommodation, restaurant and bar. Here you can try on seal safaris and swim with seals if you like.
If you like cycling, Aspö is excellent for holidays. Here you can live high up in a lot tower - Aspö lots tower, visit Drottningskär's castle and a Museum for Moving Coast Artillery. Maybe you will find the place that will forever be your perfect spot. Welcome to discover Karlskrona archipelago!
The archipelago boats can be found in several places in the Karlskrona archipelago. The same island can be touched several times during the same day by several different ships. It allows you to combine the boat trips as you like and discover the entire Blekinge archipelago. Via Blekingetrafiken's archipelago traffic you will find a good overview map and complete information on all boat trips.
Tip! Take a converted steamboat M / F Axel to Nättraby. The journey takes place under glittering foliage up the idyllic Nättrabyån. The boat trip takes about 4.5 hours. Go to the page here - Archipelago traffic
Travelling in the archipelago is easy. Choose your jetty stop and buy your ticket as you hop aboard the boat. If you go from Fiskorget, you buy your ticket at the information kiosk before boarding. You can pay by swish, cash or bank card. Blinking traffic's summer card applies in archipelago traffic. It is a cheaper travel card so check it out if it can be an idea.
