Welcome to the Västerängsudd nature reserve in Sigtuna municipality. The reserve is located on a peninsula in Skarven, a part of Lake Mälaren. Here, you will find grazed meadows and hills with oak trees, surrounded in hazel thickets. There's a path along the shore through the reserve.

There are some open clearings by the water, but they can be difficult to get to. In early summer, cowslip and snake's head fritillary bloom in the beautiful groves. If you walk quietly and look up occasionally, you might just spot an owl.

There is a visitor parking lot at Steninge. A long walk along gravel roads takes you to the reserve.
