The island of Ulvön

Out here, you have the mainland behind you, and only open sea ahead. You´ll find yourself in an incredibly beautiful in-between land, with picturesque fishing settlements, untouched nature and spectacular cliffs plunging deep into the sea.

The Ulvön islands are our archipelago’s biggest tourist attraction with a fantastic cultural heritage thanks to the picturesque little houses, boat sheds and traditional wooden frames still seen in people’s gardens for drying fishing nets. This was once Northern Sweden’s largest fishing community and it is often referred to as the gem of the Bothnian Sea or Norrland’s Sandhamn after the popular island in Stockholm’s archipelago. Take a walk along Hamngatan and soak in the atmosphere while admiring the iconic small red boatsheds. Don’t miss Ulvön’s old chapel, one of the Norrland Coast’s oldest that dates back to 1662. Take the time to admire its beautiful wall and ceiling paintings. We warmly recommend a walk up to the top of Lotsberget to experience the panoramic views over Ulvöhamn and the archipelago. For those interested in cultural history, visit Ulvö Museum to learn about the island's rich history of fishing, fermenting herring and mining. There are plenty of activities for the kids at Ulvö Hotel – enjoy the heated pool, mini golf, beach volleyball and playgrounds complete with barbeque areas. A daytrip to the northern part of the island is also to be recommended, where you can visit Sandviken fishing village, the lighthouse or the swimming beach Norrsand.
