Visit Lånan in July

We are currently exploring different travel solutions for 2023, and will keep you posted.

If we are able to welcome tourists, this is what you will experience:

When you arrive at Lånan you will be greeted by the bird watchers, who will take you on a fantastic walk in the eider’s kingdom. You get to join us and learn how we take care of the eider ducks every year while they are nesting, and learn about how we collect eider down and make the world’s best eider duvets. You will also hear stories about what it was like to be a child “on the island”, about life at the boarding school on Skogsholmen and about how Lånan was affected by World War II. There are many stories on the island, and our bird watchers look forward to sharing them with you. The tour then ends at Låven, where we have a great photo exhibition related to the stories that have been told..

We guarantee lifelong memories, and a unique chance to experience a vibrant island community where history is taken care of in the best way. The trip is suitable for everyone, easy terrain to walk in and good access to and from the boat.
