Accessibility - discover Ängsö National Park on your own

Visitors are welcome to discover Ängsö on their own. The landscape is relatively flat and easy to walk through. Although gnarly roots and stones make the ground uneven, the trails are inviting!

Hemudden, the area between the jetty for the ferry and the cottage, is wheelchair-accessible: The paths are made of packed gravel. There is a dry toilet, picknick area with a fire pit. The small houses by the water are open to the public and offer shelter from rain and wind. There are tables inside and a small exhibition about the national park. All these features are wheelchair-accessible.

Beyond the cottage, the ground becomes more uneven and the inclination more challenging. Paths are not accessible to  wheelchairs.

In spring, the ground gets saturated with water. Trails pass through wet or sensitive areas on boardwalks. In the summer, when the ground dries up, it is possible to bring a stroller along some of the trails.


Guided tours in May - June. Visit on your own all year round.
