Stendörren Nature Reserve is an hour’s drive from Stockholm. Stendörren is located in Sörmland, along the coast between Nyköping and Trosa. Via a suspension bridge you enter the archipelago where you can fully enjoy nature. The Stendörren area is also a popular destination for sailing boats and pleasure yachts.

There are several signposted routes in the nature reserve that you can follow, including Sörmlandsleden. A dip in the fresh water is highly recommended during the summer months. Be careful that you can get out of the water easily. I myself was very excited to jump into the water, but due to the slippery stones, I needed some help getting back out of it.

Stendörren consists of 2 parts. You can visit the first part without a boat via the suspension bridges. The second part, around the fishing port Aspnäset is only accessible by boat. The entire area is just under 1000 hectares, of which more than 70% is water.

You can’t just put up your tent in the nature reserve of Stendörren. But you can go to one of the cottages on the domain. Camping is only allowed on the parts that are not accessible on foot (so possibly with the canoe).
