Welcome to our Hostel on the lush, green island of Biskops Arnö!
The island of Biskops Arnö in Lake Mälaren hosts the remains of a bishop’s castle from the 13th Century.
It is 10km to the nearest town Bålsta, 20km to Enköping, 40km to Uppsala and 60km to Stockholm.Our visitors can
enjoy marked hiking trails, a swimming jetty and centuries-old oak trees. The island’s farmlands
have a fascinating history as do the listed buildings dating from both the Middle Ages and the 17th and 18th
Centuries. The 14th Century Gothic vaults are a must for every visitor to Biskops Arnö.
Canoes and bicycles can be rented and you are welcome to borrow a barbecue. There are two permanent fireplaces, one
situated high on ‘Fortress Hill’ and the other near the swimming jetty on the other side of the island.
There are lots of grassy areas ideal for childrens’ games. As well as hiking through the beautiful countryside you
can play the ancient game of ‘kubb’ (also known as ‘The King’s Game’), softball or outdoor chess.
There is plenty to do in the surrounding area.
Why not visit the Baroque style Skokloster Castle, Sjö Castle, Ekolsund, the beautiful parks and gardens of
Enköping, the nature reserve at Hjälstaviken, or Åbergs Museum. There are also several golf courses nearby.
