Djurö National Park is a Swedish national park consisting of the Djurö Archipelago, a group of about 30 islands in Sweden's biggest lake, Vänern. Established in 1991, it has an area of 24 square kilometres.
The islands are presently uninhabited, but there is a hunting lodge and an unmanned lighthouse. Wildlife includes fallow deer and a great variety of birds including ospreys, hobby, oyster catchers and greater black-backed gulls. The horizon of Djurö consists only of water, except in southern direction where Kinnekulle is visible.
To visit Djurö one needs to have or rent a boat, as there are no regular boat trips there.
