On arrival: With car, you have free access on the ferry from Karlskrona to Aspö. No car? International? No problem. You can arrive at Kasturp Airport (Denmark) take the train straight from the airport to Karlskrona (3,5 hours) and jump on the ferry to Aspö (20 minutes). Bicycles are waiting for you at the ferry harbor. It's a 3,5km beautiful ride to 'Aspö Cottage', and you can buy our family bakery 'Z-bagaren's' fresh bread from the local store on the way.
On Aspö: you can drive on the small island of Aspö, but a bike trip or a walk, might be just as easy.
Visit Karlskrona? If you want to see amazing Karlskrona, catch a film on a rainy day or do some shopping, you just take the bike/car 3 km to the ferry, and after 20 min you arrive in the central of Karlskrona city and UNESCO Cultural Heritage. Don't miss the famous 'Glacie
NOTE! 'Aspö Cottage' is an old fishing cottage. The cottage has dry toilet solutions according to the islands environmental policy. Water is fetched at Aspö joint water-taps (will be full water supply in 'Aspö Cottage' on arrival, but may need to refill depending on how long you stay). Shower is available at the local yacht club (1 EURO). Or free if you take your morning dip in the sea. This is not the right place if you want city comfort! But might be just the ticket if you want back to nature - but still walking distance to a hot shower, the local store with fresh baked bread and the pub.
Leave the cottage as you would like to find it!

Hi, I'm Birgitta Liljedahl. After weeks on the road between north of Sweden, New York, or war-zones like South Sudan as a researcher / screenwriter, for me, our family place 'Aspö Cottage' is an oasis for writing, photography or just relaxing in the archipelago - yet on walking/ferry distance to historic Karlskrona. Hope you will enjoy it too!
