The Stockholm Archipelago

Don`t forget to take a break at the Stockholm Archipelago, one of the highlights of Stockholm.

30000 islands

The Stockholm archipelago is very popular for summertime holidays, but it is beautiful and can be visited all year around.  The archipelago is a cluster of some 30,000 islands, skerries and rocks spreading 80 km east from the city into the Baltic Sea.

Some are large inhabited islands famed for swinging summer parties and others are little more than rocky outposts or grassy knolls visited by the odd seal or kayaker. You can actually cook your own fish on BBQ stations at camping sites, or visit some famed Swedish restaurants on Fjäderholmarna, Grinda and Värmdö.

Boat tours

By the locals, the archipelago is called "Skärgården". It is most popular to enjoy the archipelago by ferries. Ferry companies like Cinderella or Waxholmsbolaget offer trips of any kinds. If you want some action takes a RIB boat trip. Also, small taxi boats sailing between the islands.
