Home > About Sävö

Sävö is the most northern island in the group of islands, Hartsö-Ringsö-Långö-Sävö, southeast of the bay Tvären about 20 kilometers from Nyköping. The island is situated about 300 meters from the small wharf Källvik and you reach the island by boat or canoe.

There are plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation on the island, among them swimming, fishing and hiking. The trail Sörmlandsleden, marked by orange paint, will take you for a three kilometer walk along forest grazings, hay meadows and rocks with a great long distance view when the sky is clear.
