Hellasgården lies in the Nacka nature reserve south-east of Stockholm, and has been a popular recreational facility for Stockholmers ever since it was opened by the Hellas Society in the 1940s.
The land around Hellasgården is full of cultural history, and contains remains of stone circles, Iron Age graves and signal beacons. Some of these sites have displays with information about them, and this can be a good starting point for a ramble through the natural world and local cultural history.
All through the year, people come here to take part in the many activities that Hellasgården offers. Its closeness to central Stockholm - 15 minutes by bus - makes the facility a favourite destination not only for city dwellers who want to experience the natural world, but also for tourist families who want to have Stockholm city close at hand, but at a safe distance.
