Fishing in the middle of Sweden

Sundholmen Island

An island, all to yourselves, where nature is at its finest, in the middle of Storsjön (The Big Lake) in the middle of Sweden.

Main cottage

A traditional, environmentally friendly Swedish cottage with 12V electricity powering the TV, radio and lights. There is space for 6 guests across 2 bedrooms and a sleeping loft. Bedroom 1 has a double bed, bedroom 2 has 2 single beds and the sleeping loft also has 2 single beds.

The combined lounge/kitchen make up a large proportion of the cottage. The full-size kitchen has a gas cooker (3 cooking rings) and gas powered fridge. On the terrace there is a large gas-fired BBQ from which you can enjoy the long summer evenings and the never-ending sunsets. Just a few steps from the terrace is a sandy beach and idyllic lake with crystal-clear water.


The toilet is a so-called ’dry toilet’ located just 20 meters from the main cottage.

The Fishing

Storsjön covers some 2000 hectares with an abundance of pike and perch. Pike average 75cm and perch typically weigh 200-300 grams. Large trout, sometimes exceeding 10kg also roam these waters. With a good mix of shallow bays and deeper waters, fishing mostly takes place from the boat.


Sundholmen cooperate with experienced fishermen Björn and Simon Ingvald from Fishing in the Middle of Sweden. Both are experienced guides and are experts in the different fishing techniques. Find out more about Björn and Simon on their website, Read more
