Harstena
About
In the northern part of Gryt's archipelago, 6 nautical miles from the port of Fyrudden in Ostergotland lies the island of Harstena. The island is known for its well preserved archipelago setting and also for the trade that was conducted in the early days. Harstena features grand nature scenes and is somewhat of an idyll in the outermost part of the archipelago.

Ein herrlicher Spaziergang über die Insel mit guten Übergängen gebaut aus Holz über matschige Stellen. Wunderbare Oasen. Von der Bäckerei geht es in den Wald und durch die Blaubeeren, an einem Binnensee vorbei und juchzenden Kindern, die badeten. Über Baumwurzeln an Schafen vorbei kann man einen Rundweg um die Insel gehen. Dann ab ins Restaurant mit dem guten Lammgericht und der guten, humorvollen Bedienung aus dem Iran. So wird es ein erinnerungswürdiger Besuch auf einer besonderen Insel.

Trevlig båtfärd t.o.r. Arkösund- Harstena över dagen. Lunch på Loftet och en promenad innan vi lämnar för återresa med Svanö.
En perfekt dagsutflykt!

Trevlig dagsutflykt från Arkösund med M/S Svanö. En rundvandring, som är väderberoende. Bageri, restaurang och natur. Rökt fisk kan finnas till höga priser.

Vi gick en markerad slinga runt ön. I slutet kom vi till "byn" Ett antal röda stugor med vita knutar. Verkligen pittoreskt. En riktig idyll. Byggnaderna är välhållna och mycket blommor runt husen.
Väl värt ett besök.

Jättemysig ö med fina badställen. Restaurang, bageri och handelsbod. Näckrosdammen är värt ett besök.

Fantastiskt fin liten skärgårdsö. Restaurang, med god mat, handelsbod med rökt fisk lite matvaror. Mjukglass, kulglass o GB sortiment. Bageri längre upp på ön. Litet konstgalleri. Många fina hus att titta på! Men Personalen serverar o säljer till kunder när de har tid, lust och har pratat färdigt med varandra. Eftersom tiden, för de flesta besökare, är begränsad så upplevs det bemötandet lite otrevligt och ovälkomnaste. Synd på fin pärla i skärgården med förvånansvärt stort utbud.

Supermysig pärla i skärgården. Främst sommartid.
Har du inte egen båt så finns det turbåtar från Fyrudden. Eller kollektivtrafik (båt). Båda måste bokas i förväg.
Vi åkte med turbåt tur och retur samma dag. Det ger ca 3 timmar på ön.
På ön hann vi med att äta lunch på restaurang Löftet, promenera runt och se bageri, trankokerimuseum, byn samt även ta ett dopp i havet.

Rekommenderas!

Det finns möjlighet att hyra rum på ön men det har jag inte provat.

Tack för den fina recensionen! Om du vill stanna lite längre nästa gång är du välkommen att övernatta i en av våra stugor.

Resan dit är målet värt! Åkte Skärgårdslinjen från Arkösund tor. Väl på Harstena rekommenderas en promenad runt ön samt inköp av rökt fisk, dock till väl tilltagna priser! En strömmingslunch på Restaurang Loftet kan rekommenderas för den som inte har medhavd matsäck.
