Lighthouse summary

Welcome to the Garpen island lighthouse! This incredible property on a tiny island is just 15 minutes off the shore of the Bergkvaren marina, about two kilometers into the Baltic Sea. A boat will take you comfortably to the island! 

You can rent an overnight cabin for two persons, but you can also stay with more people if you like, since there are more cabins. In total, there is room for 20 people on Garpen island. So for receptions or family gatherings, the island is also perfect! 

Of course, you can visit the lighthouse and enjoy the fantastic view it has to offer. Or swim directly from the pier, and enjoy the oasis of the Baltic Sea. 

Lighthouse description

The Garpen island lighthouse is perfect for romantic getaways for two, or larger family holidays. On the island, there is a nice cafe that serves food and drinks. It is also possible to have a BBQ, as grills are available for hire as well! 

The price also includes the boat trip, sheets, towels, cleaning and breakfast! There will be staff present to assist you with everything when needed. However, your privacy is guaranteed! Stay in the former lighthouse keeper's cottage where you gently cradle to sleep by the sounds of the ocean. Welcome!

    Wonderful stay!

    We had a lovely visit to Garpens Fyr.  We enjoyed our stay in Ernst Kirchsteiger's "breathing space" cabin, and the views were spectacular. Dinner was very good, and our hosts made sure we had everything we needed.
