# 4. Of the top 10 of dream spots

The magnificent Stockholm Archipelago.....

At Grinda

Another island, but they all look so fantastic, that I had to add another one to the 'dream list'. There are many beautiful small islands in Sweden, and some of the hostels are located on the most remote, lonely and picturesque places. So there is plenty to choose from if you consider staying on a spot like this! The name of this particular island is Grinda. It is a bigger island, perfect for daytrips by bicycle. The hostel is located at the south coast of the island. The island has some popular summer restaurants.
