Off to photogenic Arkösund
Arkösund is a small village on the Swedish East Coast quite near of Norrköping city. Its located in the southern archipelago and as always in the archipelago of course surrounded by beautiful small islands.
I love the expression “Like a Swede” and it is because there is so much right behind it. There are several things that the swedes love to do and one of them is escape from the city to their houses in the archipelago or the countryside.
Like a swede we had some days off work and we went to spend them in the summerhouse of my friends Claes and Anna nearby Arkösund. Arkösund is a small village on the Swedish East Coast quite near of Norrköping city. Its located in the southern archipelago and as always in the archipelago of course surrounded by beautiful small islands. The summerhouse was located in a precious countryside like taken from one of Astrid Lindgren’s children’s book stories. The lush intensely green woods and fields with colorful flowers and the precious red cottages with white corners and windows is totally adoring. The ambience very relaxed and quiet. Its perfect to disconnect from the city life and charge your batteries.
The days in the swedish countryside are sent in tranquility. Eating good food, taking long walks, barbequing and of course sauna bathing.
I can’t wait for it to become a little warmer though so one can start enjoying taking boat rides to explore the islands off the coast and swim in the sea.
Hope you enjoy these beautiful pictures from the photogenic town of Arkösund!
For the ones interested in getting there from Stockholm city you can go either by car, train or bus ( line440).
Also I recommend you to visit these pages in case you are looking for a rental house, hotel or apartment. Next time I will visit Arkösund I want to go to the town market, I heard it is also worthy to see it 🙂
