Activities and excursions

A holiday in Östergarnslandet invites to adventure, here are some tips on what you can do in the local area and around. You will surely find your own “gems”, which you are welcome to share!

Rent a bike and explore Östergarnslandet on your own, there are nice bike paths along the coast. Bicycles can be rented from us.

Rent a kayak or SUP (stand up paddle board) and paddle out from the people on the beach and explore the bay, these can also be rented from us.

Every year in July, a sand sculpture competition is organized on Sandviken beach where everyone can participate.

At Östergarn’s sports ground, about 3 kilometers from Sandviken, there are tennis courts for rent and access to a football pitch.

About 15 km away, 16 minutes by car, Ljugarns GK is the nearest golf course

Kite flying competition at Sysneudd is about building your own kite that can fly. The competition is in July.

A boat trip to Östergarnsholm will be a memory for life. The boat departs from Herrvik harbor. Coffee and guided tours can be ordered.

The closest is Sysne, a walk of about 20 minutes and you are there. On Sysneudd, in addition to the magnificent bare coastal landscape, there is a fishing village located by a former lime kiln where lime was once burned for export.

The fish shop is open daily during the summer season and the smell of freshly smoked fish is hard to resist.
