A red cottage, Boholmsviken, close to the sea

The cottage at Boholmsviken


On Sävö you can live very close to the nature, sleep in the open air shelter or put up a tent. But you can also check in at the cosy hostel. It is part of Hostelling International.

On the northern part of the island there are two cottages for rent, both of them at a very basic standard.

The hostel

The hostel was tastefully renovated only a couple of years ago. It contains 35 beds. The houses were originally built in the 1870’s. The buildings used to be vessel pilot’s residence.

Cottages at Boholmsviken och Lägerplatsen

The two small red cottages are beautifully situated close to the sea. The standard is very basic. There is no running water nor electricity. Water is brought from the farm “Sävö gård”.

Cottages at Boholmsviken och Lägerplatsen


You can put up your tent at Lägerplatsen on the northern part of the island or at Huvviken. There is also a toilet and a fire place at Lägerplatsen while you use the near by fireplace and toilet when you camp at Huvviken.

Since there are cows and sheep grazing freely on the island it is wise to camp within the fences that surround the two camping spots. At Lägerplatsen – place your tent behind the cottage. Do not camp on the fields where we harvest hay for the sheep.
