What To Expect
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.
