why Utö?

Utö is where the swimrun movement started. It is a Swedish island in the southern part of the Stockholm archipelago with a small year-round population. Our home away from home, Utö Värdshus, offers accomodation in different sizes and excellent dining experiences.

On Utö, you will find untouched nature with beautiful pine tree forests and the wild Baltic Sea. In the North, there are rocky granite cliffs, while the South offers a coast line with sandy beaches. You can conquer the island on technical trails with different terrains. The incredible ocean views make up for some elevation gains. For more information click here.
