Fejan has an exciting recent history. When a cholera epidemic swept across Europe at the end of the 19th century, the Swedish authorities tried to stop the disease before it entered the country. An east-coast quarantine station was hastily built on Fejan.
Fejan is a good all-round destination. You’ll find everything here, from the hubbub and chatter of the restaurant and guest harbour, to some wonderful countryside with pastures and open views along the walking paths. The gravel path along the shore from the restaurant to the smokehouse is now in such good condition that you can take a wheelchair along it.
The feeling of being out in the open sea really enhances your experience out here. You will see ferry and boat traffic from the Furusund shipping route out towards the open sea when you wander along the shore out onto the docks. Fejan is, after all, practically on the outermost edge of the archipelago, yet still protected.
It’s easy to spend just a day here, or stay overnight at the youth hostel. You can get here in just a couple of hours from Strömkajen or by taking the ferryboat from Rävsnäs, and it’s possible to return home the same day.
