This sibling property to the Hotel J at Nacka Strand can be reached by car, ferry, or a charming narrow-gauge railway that leads almost to its door. Perfect for people who want to be out of town and on the edge of the archipelago.
Skiing

Fjäderholmarnas Krog

It's only minutes from the centre by cab, but you feel like you are in the countryside at this pleasant and modern hotel. Due to its conference facilities and location it's popular with business travelers.
