Huvudskar - Sweden

Huvudskar - a gem in the archipelago

Haninge archelapago's last outpost towards the sea is Huvudskar.  Here you will find an archipelago
with approximately 200 islands, islets and skerries.  A fishing village from the Middle Ages is located here.  The fishing village was popular for fishing Baltic herring and cod.  It was later known as a pilot, customs and lighthouse station.  Tullhuset (customs house) is now a youth hostel.

Tourists venture here to sunbathe, swim, fish and enjoy the landscape.  Artists and photographers are
particularly fascinated by the magical light.  Ornithologists can enjoy a rich bird life.  Seals also thrive
here.  And sea eagles soar in the sky.
