What You Can Expect

Stockholm Archipelago Sailing Adventure

Stockholm Archipelago Sailing Adventure

On arrival at Vaxholm (one hour from central Stockholm by ferry), you will be met by the yacht's skipper at the ferry terminal for a comprehensive safety briefing. All sailing gear and equipment are provided for your use during your sailing adventure - just make sure to pack some sunglasses!

Once you're on board, the modern yacht will set sail to explore the islands, skerries and bays that make up the fascinating Stockholm archipelago. Many of the 24,000 islands within the area are uninhabited and accessible for landing under the Swedish "Right of Public Access". This special law enables total freedom to explore, so there will be a scheduled stop on a picturesque island for lunch and optional swimming.

While you assist the yacht's captain and crew with the handling of the yacht, you will also learn about sailing, navigation, charts and compasses. The Captain will also share expert local knowledge about island life. You'll learn about the history of Europe's largest archipelago, and the natural wildlife that makes the area so spectacular.

You have the option to finish the day with dinner in Vaxholm or take a cruise back to the city on a classic 100 year-old steamer (own expense).

Customer Reviews

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2013

Ralph and his wife were absolutely fantastic. Could not more-highly recommend this trip.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

We went in late June so it was warm. This is highly recommended. It was a very lazy day, just sailing around the islands. Our skipper was very pleasant, a good sailor and lunch was excellent.
If you like the outdoors then do this. Swimming optional as too cold for us.
