The archipelago in Blekinge extends from the western municipal border to Sweden’s southeastern corner.

The archipelago consists of approximately 500 scenic coves and islands of various sizes with rocky beaches, deciduous forests and meadows. The archipelago boats depart from the city center of Karlshamn, Matvik and Järnavik. During high season, the boat also departs from Vägga harbour.


Travel with the archipelago boats to the islands Kastellet, Tärnö, Tjärö, Östra Bokö, Fölsö, Ekö and Joggesö. The two largest archipelago islands, Tärnö and Tjärö, offers accommodation, serving of food and various activities. On Tjärö you can stay in a cabin, hotel or hostel. You can rent canoes, paddle boards, kayaks and pedal boats. They also offers boules court and outdoor gym. On Tärnö you can stay in boathouses, apartments or glamping tents. At Tärnö you can rent rowing boats, paddle boards and kayaks. They offer outdoor gym, fishing packages and guided tours in the archipelago. The fortress island Kastellet is located in the harbor entrance of Karlshamn and the boat tour takes only five minutes. Going to Kastellet in low season is free of charge on Saturdays and Sundays. Please note that the cafe at Kastellet is only open during low season, so bring your own picnic basket during other times. During high season, you can also go by boat to Eriksberg nature reserve.
