Fjäderholmarna (the Feather Islands)

Fjäderholmarna (the Feather Islands) Review

In the 19th century these four secluded islands were the last chance for archipelago residents to take a break before rowing into Stockholm to sell their produce. After 50 years as a military zone, the islands were opened to the public in the early 1980s. Today they are crammed with arts-and-crafts studios, shops, an aquarium, a small petting farm, a boat museum, a large cafeteria, an ingenious "shipwreck" playground, and a smoked-fish shop. It takes a 20-minute ferry ride to get here from Stockholm.
