Restaurang Framfickan vid Grinda gästhamn

Sustainable Gateways

The purpose of the project was to develop sustainable and attractive “gates” to protected nature through sustainable environmental solutions and increased business professionalism among harbor entrepreneurs. The result was increased nature tourism directed to the guest harbors to protect nature in Finland’s marine national parks and the Stockholm archipelago nature reserves.

The project is finished and ran between 2018-2020.

The project ports in Sweden are Grinda, Utö and Nåttarö. In Finland, the harbors of Katanpää, Bodö, Örö and Jussarö have been part of the project.


Nåttarö in Stockholm’s southern archipelago has previously only had a few places for visiting boats at the tour boat pier. The project has enabled two new floating piers that in total provide space for about 50 boats in the guest harbor. A new service house with toilets, showers, sauna and port office has been built near the restaurant.


Utö guest harbor is a well-visited harbor with good service for boat guests. The service house from 1976 has now received a much-needed renovation and modernization within the framework of the project.


Grinda guest harbor is visited every year by many boats. In order to be able to cope with the increasing amounts of sewage, the capacity of the sewage system has been expanded. A project that is not visible, but which has a very positive effect on the possibility of continuing to receive visitors in an environmentally sustainable way.
