Welcome to Solviken’s Hostel & Conference on lake Sommen
At Hostel Solviken our aim is for you to always feel really welcome when you come to visit us. We have a facility that is beautifully located on a peninsula on the Lake Sommen. During December 2012 Solviken’s Hostel & Conference came under new management when Torpöns Färjeläge became the new owners. We who operate Torpöns Färjeläge, Peter, Jörgen and Annika want along with the hostel’s host, Janne Johansson, welcome you with open arms to us here at Solviken☺
Our hostel standard is simple but pleasant and affordable. The first thing that strikes you is the proximity to the water on all sides of the hostel. If you lift your gaze across the bay you will see Torpön with mountains and forests and when you look west you will see Torpa Church on the other side of the brook Linna.
If you want to come here as a guest we can serve you breakfast and a simple meal. If you prefer to take care of your food by yourself then that is easy to do in one of our two guest kitchens. If you are a group who wants to join up at Solviken we can offer you anything from coffee to wedding dinners. We would like to know your requirements for meals a few days in advance, so we can prepare them in the best possible way.
Our 29 rooms are split between two buildings with a total of 70 beds. Both buildings have their own guest kitchen. We have two, three and six-bed rooms with a possibility to set up extra beds in a room if needed. All our rooms have a lake view, closets and a sink.
Solviken at Torpön has a generous lawn with a barbecue place and of course you can take a refreshing swim in the lake Sommen from our natural beach right outside the hostel. A few hundred meters away, there is a sandy beach with docks. Solviken also offers hiking and biking trails, sauna, canoe and boat rentals, fishing and more. In the surroundings you will find several attractions and excursions such as; Torpön’s Färjeläge with restaurant, ice cream bar and a high rope course, Sommen Naturum exhibition on water and wildlife in and around Lake Sommen, Kvarnkulla nursery, Brostorp’s Swedish cheesecake farmshop, Asby Rally carts, potteries and artisans. In the town of Tranås, located about 15 km to the west, you can shop, visit the bowling alley or movie theatre or maybe play golf.
In the wintertime maybe the ice on Lake Sommen invites you to take a tour, either on skates or skis. 10 km east from Solviken lies Asby Alpina’s facility with alpine ski slope and catering lodge. There are also crosscountry skiing trails in the area, depending on snow conditions.
