Good to know
The footbridge to Skeppsholmen is wide enough for wheelchairs, but the last few meters to the table is a path with natural occurrence of roots and rocks. We recommend that guests in wheelchairs have someone assisting them along the way.
The foraging activity is adaptable, so that you follow a walkway and a smaller road in the area to forage for plants.
There is a privy at Skeppsholmen. A toilet for the disabled can be arranged if need be.
We recommend clothes adapted to the weather, along with comfortable walking shoes.
In case of bad weather
There is a large wooden kåta – tipi – located on Skeppsholmen close to the table, which can be used in case of heavy rain or fire restrictions due to dry weather. The tipi has an indoor fireplace and a cosy atmosphere.
