Outdoor life

Nature reserve


All of Lake Kottla and the open farming landscape at Elfvikslandet are part of the Långängen-Elfvik nature reserve. Dogs must be on a leash at all times except for on Elfvikslandet.
 
Kappsta is a recreational area that is also interesting from a historical perspective because the diplomat Raoul Wallenberg was born there.
 
Visitors here are not allowed to break off branches, dig up plants, disturb wildlife, make fires unless it is in a designated area, take a dog (or other pet) unless it is on a leash, or disturb with radios, engines or in any other way. In Kappsta, you cannot ride horses, camp, or ride a bicycle,and boats are allowed to drop anchor for only two days.

Playgrounds and parks


We are constantly maintaining and improving approximately 30 playgrounds, which are equally distributed over the island . We are responsible for the safety at all the play areas located on our land.

Fire pits and wind shelters


If you make a fire, you are also responsible for extinguishing it. You are also responsible for disposing your trash properly. Map of fire pits in Lidingö

Trail and paths

Riding school


The riding school in Stockby holds courses in both Stockby and Elfvik.

Fishing


You can fish with a fishing rodanda casting rod almost anywhere in Lidingö, with a few exceptions. The city advises people not to fish in Lake Kottla, because the legal situation is still not clear.
