Practical information

You can only reach the island by boat. There are no connecting bridges or car ferries to Utö. From Årsta Brygga the boats frequently leave for Utö and there is also a parking lot for cars. When paying the parking fee (by cash or by major credit cards), you can use the ticket as a voucher valued for SEK 40 to be used on the boat or at shops and restaurants at Utö.

Getting here

By public transportation from Stockholm you take the 'pendeltåg' (commuter-train) from Stockholm Central to Västerhaninge. From 'Västerhaninge centrum' take the connecting bus (846) to Årsta Brygga.

Transporting your car to the island is not recommended as there is no bridge or regular car-ferry to the island. The best option is to park your car at Årsta Brygga (near Västerhaninge), as the boat to Utö leaves frequently from there. The parking is very close (less than 100m) to where the boat leaves from. Make sure to allow some time to find a parking space. Please note that Årsta brygga / Årsta havsbad (close to Västerhaninge) is NOT the same as Årsta (close to downtown Stockholm).

If you are arriving from Stockholm, take the road 73 towards Nynäshamn and turn at "Trafikplats Fors". Follow the signs to Årsta Havsbad. Turn right when you see the sign to "Årsta Brygga". For timetables and rates, please see the website of Utö Rederi.

Also see the travel route given by Ryan Anderson.

Transportation costs

In summertime it will cost ca 80 SEK day 1. You will get a voucher for a value of 40 SEK which can be used for purchase on the boat or at Utö, the rest of the days it will cost SEK 40. The boat ride costs ca 65 SEK per grown-up and ca 45 SEK for seniors and children aged between 7 and 19 years. Children younger than 7 years go for free. A bicycle costs ca 30 SEK extra per bicycle and you can only bring the bicycle onboard if there is space. For exact and up to date costs please see Utö Rederi.

Baggage on the boat

You bring your baggage on the boat from Årsta brygga. Unless you're planning on bringing very big items, such as bicycles, babycarriages etc, it's not a problem bringing the baggage onboard. If you do have big items such as the above, try to take an early morning boat, as the boats in the afternoon and mid-day are quite full with (day-)tourists already and you may have to take the next boat.

Upon arrival to Näsudden brygga, take the road straight ahead passing the brown houses. We live in the first red house on your right hand. The house is 1 km from the church of Utö and Spränga Brygga, where you can find a kiosk and a small harbour.
