Exhilarating Sightseeing of Stockholm and its Archipelago!
Experience Stockholm’s Archipelago by RIB speed boat: it’s exciting, exhilarating and beautiful! Within 5 minutes of departure we will be in the Archipelago, with almost 30 000 islands there’s plenty to see and there’s no more thrilling way than by RIB speed boat!
The tour will start with a short briefing on what to expect during the hour ride. Then once you are geared up with some waterproofs and a life jacket, you will hop into the boat and hold onto the railing tightly; it’s going to be a fast ride!!!
On the way out of the city you will pass the National Museum, and take a loop around Djurgården to see Gröna Lund Amusement Park and the Vasa Museum. The boat will pick up speed as it leaves the scenic urban coastline behind, racing out towards the idyllic Stockholm Archipelago at speeds of up to 45 knots (95 km per hour).
Reaching Fjäderholmarna signifies that you’ve arrived in the archipelago proper. Soak up the changing scenery; for as far as the eye can see there are rocky, tree-covered islands dotting the Baltic Sea. Some are home to pastel-coloured wooden dwellings and small fishing villages, but many are uninhabited. At the island of Vaxholm, we slow down for a chance to appreciate the mammoth Vaxhholm Fortress, originally constructed in the 1500s.
What a fantastic way to sightsee in Stockholm! You’ll be blown away (quite literally) with this tour!
