About Tisenö

Tisenö is an island in the lake Tisnaren 200 km southwest of Stockholm.  Here you will find ecological farming and tourism;  a working farm with cows, sheep, horses, chicken, a dog, and cats.  To get to the island you will board our small and private car ferry.

As there is no public car traffic on the island you will find a wonderful atmosphere of peace and quiet.  You will be close to Nature with its fields and forests, the lake and the animals.  The lake is very clean and offers swimming, boating, fishing and cray-fishing.

We are about 5 to 10 people living on the farm, in three households.  We are all interested in living as green/ecologically as possible and in maintaining a simple and low-cost lifestyle.

Tisenö has always been open to visitors from all over the world; during a period of 10 years we used to arrange international work camps for young people.  Today we are more directed towards tourism.


Getting here

Tisenö is situated 25 km southwest of Katrineholm.

Ig you are coming from the south you take road 55 from Norrköping towards Katrineholm. After 25 km (just after Simonstorp) there is a sign towards Rejmyre. Follow that road all through Rejmyre to Hävla, ca 25 km. In Hävla turn right towards Katrineholm and after 5 km turn left when you see the sign Stavsundet. Keep going until you arrive at the ferry

If you come from Katrineholm take the old road 55 towards Norrköping (white roadsigns) and turn right after 2 km towards "Forsa, Rejmyre". Keep going 25 km until you see the sign "Stavsundet" on your right. Turn right and keep going until you see the ferry.
