Idöborg is a private island with a rich history located in Stockholm’s archipelago, surrounded by beautiful nature and breathtaking views. The main building, a beautiful Art Nouveau style villa built in the early 1900s, offers cozy single and double rooms with shared bathrooms. The yoga shala is located on the waterfront and here you will practice yoga and meditation while enjoying the sunrise. Another gem of Idöborg is the spacious wood fired sauna with panoramic views of the archipelago.
