The island is a popular tourist destination and is easily accessible during summer with the ferries from Karlshamn or Matvik.


In our comfortable furnished canvas tents we offer our guests a relaxed over night experience with unique closeness to the beautiful archipelago nature. We want to offer an experience that passes on the sence of freedom and tranquility of the nature and the sea, with some personal touch and natural comfort. Our ambition is to provide you with the same comfort as in a hotel, but in a little more rustic and natural way.

At Tärnö Glamping – We bring you a dinner that you cook at your grill by your tent. Enjoy your unique stay in the nature and fall asleep to the calming sounds of the nature and the sea, then wake up to a lovely breakfast served in a basket and delivered to your tent the following morning.

Our lodge consists of canvas tents mounted on wooden deckings, each with a small private terrace in front facing the sea. The tents are all personally furnished with real beds with warm down duvets and pillows.
