Karlskrona and Sweden’s most southerly archipelago is made up of 1,650 islands, islets and skerries – from Hasslö in the west to Utlängan in the east. Savour blue days of wind, water, salt-splashed rocks and glorious bays for bathing.
The city of Karlskrona is built upon 33 islands. Without the protective ring of large and small islands surrounding the city, King Karl XI, would probably not have chosen Trossö for his new naval base. There are islands, that have from one to 1,500 inhabitants, islands with and without connection to the mainland. Look for your very own favorite spot - and enjoy - because there are plenty of them!
Far out in eastern archipelago, there are plenty of exciting islands like, Inlängan, Utlängan, Stenshamn, Ungskär and Hästholmen, which offers a charming setting. The character of the islands here, differs a lot from the green inner archipelago. Far out to the southeast, lies the group of islands called Utklippan. The environment at Utklippan is unique and liberating - and if you are lucky, you´ll spot the seal colony. The seals really enjoy their life at this special place, and hopefully you will too!
Karlskrona´s archipelago is part of Blekinge Archipelago Biosphere Reserve, nominated by UNESCO in 2011.
