To sail Stockholm ‘s archipelago is truly amazing! During our three day trip we have enough time to get to pristine areas where we can’t get on our one-day trips.
Imagine: just you, your friends / family and an unlimited amount of islands to choose from to take your afternoon nap. Sail, swim, fish, eat and relax. Fall asleep to the gentle rocking of the boat. Or if you prefer, we can arrange for a hotel night in one of the charming archipelago hotels.
An example of a day on a boat:
You'll be picked up by your skipper and taken to the marina, where our sailboat will be waiting for us. We'll begin with a brief overview of the boat, sailing, and basic safety guidelines. We won't waste any time, and we'll be soon speeding out of the harbor.
We'll hoist the sails together not long after, and the wind will lead us to fairy tale islands. The captain even lets you or your children steer the boat under his supervision, they won't forget that any time soon! We'll make our first halt at one of the islands, most likely the famed Ornö, by tacking up against the winds.
We'll anchor at a harbor that is protected from the breeze and take some well-deserved rest. You can go swimming, sunbathing, or exploring the island. We'll set sail again, reluctant to leave this haven of pleasure. However, our reservations are quickly forgotten as we catch a smooth but strong wind from behind, which whisks us right to our "night" island.
After a lovely traditional dinner, we'll create a bonfire and cook some marshmallows. While your captain camps on the island, you'll spend the night aboard the boat! It'll be a magical and comfortable evening. The next morning, you'll wake up to the sound of birds and little waves crashing on the rocks. It's breakfast time! We'll continue our exploration of the archipelago and the islands will become even more lovely. In the afternoon, let's attempt catching some fish!
Then the captain will take you back to the marina, but this sailing trip in the Stockholm archipelago will stay with you forever.

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.
