There is plenty of water in Uppland – indoors and out, tranquil and turbulent, frozen and flowing.

A moment of peace watching the float

Uppland offers excellent fishing waters in nearly thirty lakes, all with excellent chances of a bite. Lake Mälaren is famous for its excellent zander fishing. Älvkarleby offers some of Europe’s best sea trout fishing. Eastern Uppland offers exciting sea fishing.

Reflections in the water from on high

Uppland is unusually well endowed with birdlife. There are great bird-watching locations, and bird-watching towers by the coast and lakes.

The Naturtipset app has over 20 suggestions for good places.

What kind of swimming do you prefer?

Take a dip in a warm lake, or swim from a beach on Lake Mälaren, sunbathe on the warm rocks of the Roslagskusten shoreline or at the seaside resort of Rullsands havsbad.

The Naturtipset app has over 60 suggestions for open-air swimming.

Ample opportunities to live life to the full afloat

Experience the excitement of action-packed races on Lake Mälaren and the Roslagskusten coast. Enjoy a pleasure boat trip along the glittering bays of Lake Mälaren, edged with ancient monuments, stately homes and manor houses. Glide silently by canoe along small rivers through the vast Uppland forest. Pack a picnic and sail out to your own islet in the archipelago.


Adventures on ice

Enjoy a day’s long-distance skating or accept the challenge of the annual Vikingarännet (Viking Run) between Uppsala and Stockholm. Experience the excitement of ice fishing, or relax at a campfire site near a frozen lake.
