Archipelago Foundation in the county of Stockholm
Our main task is to make it possible for everyone to be able to experience and enjoy Stockholm’s archipelago, with its vibrant cultural landscape and wealth of opportunities for recreational activities.
We preserve the pastoral landscape on our lands through grazing animals and farming. We develop businesses within recreation and tourism by leasing our buildings out to archipelago entrepreneurs, who run youth hostels, holiday villages, restaurants, waterside eating places, guest jetties and more besides. This creates jobs in the archipelago and offers a good service for visitors. We protect the environment by using special toilet facilities, composting waste and making use of the natural eco cycle.
