Directions and Transportation
Driving to Sveadal

Sveadal's about a 1.5 hour drive from San Francisco, and roughly 45 minutes from San Jose. Though it's tucked into the mountains, it's easy to find directions on Google/Waze/Apple Maps/your choice of map. It's not accessible by public transit, so we're happy to help guests find carpool options. Email if you're interested in hitching a ride or have extra room in your vehicle.

From San Francisco/SFO: head south on 280, take CA 85 S towards Gilroy, exit on the Almaden Expressway, and make your way to Croy Road. You'll know you've arrived when you pass under the big Sveadal gate.

From San Jose/SJC: head south on US-101, take the Bailey Avenue exit, and make your way to Croy Road. Look for the Sveadal gate.

From the East Bay/OAK: head south on 880, and take the exit to 101 S, and then look for the Bailey Avenue exit. From there you'll make your way to Croy Road, and Sveadal.

From the South: whether you're coming north on 101, 1, or 5, you'll end up on 101 passing up through Gilroy, making your way onto Uvas Road until you reach Croy Road. Again, look for the big Sveadal gate.

We've reserved the rental cabins at Sveadal for the wedding party and family, but there are a few spots open for those interested. The cabins are neat little communal living spaces (beds in the common areas), and you might want to bring a sleeping bag. Juliana will be the one juggling all the spots, so if you're interested in sharing a cabin send her an email at

For those of you who are inclined to the great outdoors, Sveadal also has campgrounds! Check the website for campground availability.

Things to Do

Sveadal Sapl
8220 Croy Road, Morgan Hill, CA 95037, United States

Sveadal has multiple creeks, a swimming pool, horseshoe pits, and more. Further up Croy Road is Uvas Canyon County Park, with 6 miles of hiking trails. The waterfalls will likely be dry in September, but it's still a great place to run around and explore under the shade of madrones and redwoods.

San Francisco, CA, United States

Where to begin... the California Academy of Sciences and the Exploratorium are two of the museums that made Juli go into the whole museum business. If art is your scene, there are loads of art museums, galleries, and murals dotted all over the city. You can even visit the comic book lounge where Ryan and Juli started their relationship. The great thing about San Francisco's hills (other than the stunning views) is that they help you work off one meal in preparation for the next. Ryan and Juli used to catch concerts in Golden Gate Park, so check if there are any free events going on while you're in town. If you need any recommendations, just ask Ryan and/or Juli and we'll give you more leads than you'll know what to do with.

Santa Cruz, CA, United States

If San Francisco's not your scene, head on over to Santa Cruz for a day at the beach or up in the redwoods. Take a microbrewery tour, go to a spa, get silly at the boardwalk... just have fun! Bonus points if you make it to The Buttery.

Gilroy, CA, United States

Gilroy is not only the garlic capital of the world, it's also home to a ton of outlets. So if you need to stock up on, well, anything, head over to the premium outlets.

There are also lots of wineries and golf courses in the area that you can explore.
