Guest house in Stockholm archipelago with B&B, dinner and lunch

Sälstationen, a historical top secret place offers accommodation, meeting place and activities. A unique and cozy environment for relaxing with the sea at your front door. In the middle of the Gålö nature reserve and Stockholm archipelago.

During the Second World War, about 20 seals were trained to help the Navy to track out foreign submarines and mines. This site was chosen, as it was secluded while easily accessible. Valdemar Fellenius, moved in with his family, a number of conscripts. In total, eight to eleven people who worked in total secrecy during 4 years.

Come and discover this site and its breathtaking nature surroundings.

Sleep over in one of our lodge, take some time to meet with others in the common areas, ”mässen”- our dining and kitchen area, ”Mysingen”- the service house with sauna and view over the fjord, and the inviting deck surrounding the historical pool for the seals.
