Landsort is the southernmost island in the Stockholm Archipelago, and they always include its weather in the radio weather reports. This past Thursday Maria Avatare, Smilla Broström and I went on a roadtrip to explore this island, which has one of Sweden’s oldest lighthouses, and the island used to be off limits for foreigners as it houses some of Sweden’s coast artillery.
The storm Hans has been harassing Sweden for the last week, and some remnants of it were still pouring rain and wind over the Archipelago. We found our first location not close from the ferry stop, with the waves crashing against the rocks forming with froth. There was a thin rain falling making everything wet.
We then started walking south, and explored one of the cannon batteries while regaining a bit of body heat.
Our next stop was somewhere along the middle of the island, where the wind and waves smashed against the rocks throwing up great cascades of water.
It was time for lunch, my brother had recommended Svedtiljas at Landsort, so we headed over there and had a really nice hamburger. It was great to sit down and rest for a bit before we headed out to explore the southernmost parts of the island and the old lighthouse.

Many thanks to Maria and Smilla for a really fun day!
