Sail through the peaceful waterways of the incredible Stockholm archipelago of 30,000 islets, islands, and rocks. While gliding along the water, surround yourself with Sweden’s striking nature for a relaxing yet unforgettable journey.
Your sailing expedition begins in the city center at 9:00 a.m., where your skipper picks you up. He transfers you by car to our sailing boat just outside of Stockholm. After a brief introduction, we hit the water.
We set sail right into Stockholm’s expansive archipelago, with land both uninhabited and habited. Each turn around the bend offers a new view that’s sure to take your breath away. Join the captain in sailing the boat or simply enjoy the cruise and admire the nature.
While you relax on the boat as you sightsee, you can also join the captain in sailing the boat. You can take this opportunity to learn how to sail from your expert skipper. As you hoist the sail and try steering, keep your eyes out for the local wildlife, such as white-tailed eagles, cormorants, or even gray seals.
For a break, we stop on a private deserted island for lunch. After we rest on the granite rocks, you can take a swim in the fresh Baltic Sea, go fishing, or hike around the island.
After a successful trip around the islands, the skipper heads towards the starting point to bring you back to the city center. After a full day in the extraordinary world of the Stockholm archipelago, you won't want to get off the boat.

We were so happy with our hike. Ben, our guide, made it really special for us. He's very knowledgeable, he knew wild fruits and plants, mushrooms, and was as excited as we were with the hike! We hike on and off-trail, picked lots of berries on the way, went to a couple of lakes, had lunch around a campfire and had an amazing time. I recommend this to anyone keen on experiencing nature in Sweden.
