Nyköping, Sörmland

Nyköping is a city by the sea; the Baltic Sea to be precise. Just an hour south of Stockholm and only 7 minutes from Skavsta Airport, you’ll find a vast archipelago of uninhabited islands to explore and long to return to. Come and explore smooth rocky outcrops and protected natural harbours, and just pause for a while. You can even get up close to sea eagles and seals.

Malmarundan winds sweep past the table behind Öster Malma, the old castle with two wings. Stay with us for a while and spend the night at the castle, visit the Wildlife Park and watch Swedish wildlife animals in their natural habitat, or continue along the gravelly cliffs, deep forests and glittering lakes. This is a place you will surely want to return to.

For a true Swedish outdoor experience, the adventure starts in Sörmland. Seeing wild animals in their true habitat has never felt so personalized. Come and see the moose, deer, wild boars, beavers and the white-tailed eagle living right next to the small towns and villages. Why not go on your own private "wildlife safari” in the light summer evenings? Or you can enjoy togetherness with family and friends at Lasätter’s Farm, nominated for the Ecotourism Award 2020.
