What You Can Expect

Stockholm Archipelago Sailing Adventure

Stop at an island to swim or explore on your sailing adventure!

Make your own way by ferry or bus from central Stockholm to Vaxholm, a pretty coastal town edging the stunning Stockholm Archipelago. Meet your skipper for the day at the ferry port and board your beautiful yach at approximately 10am.

Receive a safety briefing and watch as the crew navigates the yacht into the archipelago! Europe’s largest archipelago is a lovely collection of 24,000 natural islands and skerries that's crying out to be explored. As you cruise, you’ll soon understand how legends have emerged about the islands’ fairies and elves, and why parts of the archipelago are nominated for UNESCO World Heritage and National Park status.

Glide narrow straits lined with 19th-century houses and traverse bigger bays to reach more remote islands. Many are uninhabited yet accessible for landing, giving your yacht the freedom to roam anywhere!

Refuel with a traditional fika of coffee and snacks and assist the crew in handling the vessel. Then, take the helm guided by the professionals around you! Pick up the basics of navigation and hear about the history and wildlife of the archipelago from your skipper.

Later, your yacht will stop at a picturesque island. Go ashore to explore or swim in the crisp waters, and then enjoy a tasty lunch prepared on board, accompanied by refreshing drinks.

Continue sailing after lunch and return to Vaxholm at around 6pm, where your sailing adventure ends. Return to Stockholm straightaway, enjoy dinner in Vaxholm (own expense) and return later, or perhaps hop on the classic steamboat dinner cruise that sails from Vaxholm back to the capital (own expense).

Amazing- Martin was a superb host/yachtsman- so accommodating, kind-hearted and knowledgeable. We loved being able to participate in sailing and in the scenic beauty of the archipelagos.

Great day out on the boat and friendly captain. Enjoyed it immensely and my kids and hubby were crazy enough to go for a swim. Only problem was with the meet up. we received conflicting information from Viator as the captain had left the marina and had to come back especially for us. It wasn't very clear where to get the ferry from in stockholm either and then my phone decided not to have any service so it is a miracle we actually got to enjoy this wonderful day.
