Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Find your way by bus or ferry from central Stockholm to Vaxholm, a coastal town on the edge of the Stockholm archipelago. At the ferry port, meet your skipper at approximately 10 am and transfer to your yacht for the day.

Climb on board to meet the crew and receive a short safety briefing and introduction to the sailboat. Then, set sail into Europe's largest archipelago, a collection of 24,000 islands, part of which has been nominated for UNESCO World Heritage status. As you sail, hear the legends about the elves and fairies that live on these islands.

Some of the islands have homes and residents, but many are uninhabited. Take a turn at the ship's helm, then pause for a traditional Swedish fika, or coffee and pastry break. Learn the basics of navigation, the natural history of the area and its flora and fauna from your knowledgeable skipper as you sail.

Stop at a small island for some exploration on foot and a dip in the refreshing water. Enjoy a traditional Swedish lunch on board the boat.

Spend the afternoon sailing and exploring some of the more remote islands, or checking out some of the small fishing villages that inhabit some of the larger islands. Return to Vaxholm around 6 pm and make your own way back to Stockholm.

Amiable captain, lovely weather. Quite an enjoyable time that was like my previous experience in Stockholm staying with Swedish friends and visiting in the Archipelago. A little pricey but worth it as my daughter had a blast steering the boat as we tacked in the gentle breezes.

It was OK. I thought it was very expensive for the actual experience itself, but I guess that's the nature of sailing around in somebody's private boat. I think the company which runs the holiday has several different private boat owners who run the day, so you get whichever boat owner has been allocated for that day. I quite enjoyed it as I like being on water, but might try just getting the ferry-hopping in the archipelago next time. Note: Whatever the weather before you get on the boat, you should be prepared for very stong sun, very strong wind, and cold.

It was a great day out on the boat. The boat was equipped with rain gear so that we were able to enjoy the trip even when it was raining. When the sun came out we had lunch on the boat. All of us were busy helping with the sailing. Great experience.

We had a great time with our boat captain. For us it may have been a little more hands on than we expected but it wasn't a problem as there were others who really wanted to learn or help sail. It was a beautiful day and the trip was lovely - maybe an hour too long but again we thoroughly enjoyed it.
