Where is it?


Our place is situated near the beautiful lake Mälaren. In the summer you can swim in the lake this is only a 5 minutes walk away from the apartment, were you also can rent canoes. There are numerous hiking trails but also bridleways and mountain bikes tracks through the woods and along the lake in the area. Close by there are boats leaving to Swedens oldest city of Sigtuna and Skokloster during summer, where you can find out all about the vikings! We also have viking remains in the forest close to our house (10 min walk).

In winter there is the possibility to ski at the Sunersta hill less than 10 minutes walk away from the apartment If it freezes hard you can also ice-skate on the lake Mälaren to Stockholm. In winter we also have the cross-country ski tracks. Mushroom picking in the autumn, bird watching, it is all in Sunnersta.

If you want to go to Uppsala town then you can choose from three different buses which takes you to Uppsala railway station in about 25 minutes. In Uppsala you can visit many museums, such as the viking museum, and we also have a large famous cathedral. The train to Stockholm is about 40 minutes from the Uppsala station, trains leave every half hour or so.

In summary: Very quiet and safe neighborhood with lots of nature around the corner.
