A FULL DAY SAILING IN THE ARCHIPELAGO
Climb onboard our Luxury 40-48.5 foot Yacht for a full day sailing in the Stockholm Archipelago. Nowhere on earth can you find such an abundance of natural islands so close together. Boasting almost 30,000 islands, there’s plenty to see and there’s no more relaxing way than by sail boat!
You will meet your Captain at the harbour in the pretty coastal town of Vaxholm, on the edge of the Stockholm archipelago. Once onboard you will receive a safety briefing and then set off on your adventure! You will sail through narrow straits, lined with beautiful Scandinavian architecture; an eclectic mix of 19th century homes and modern luxury villas, before crossing larger bays to reach more wild and uninhabited islands.
As you cruise through the maze of islands and skerries, you’ll soon understand how legends have emerged about the islands’ fairies and elves, and why parts of the archipelago are nominated for UNESCO World Heritage and National Park status.
The wildlife, rugged scenery and serenity of the archipelago will blow you away! Some of the islands will be big enough to house a village, some just a single homestead and others so small they have room for only one tree on them! There will be towering cliffs, narrow straits, plenty of forest and wildlife in abundance! The wildlife and nature is astonishing! Moose, Roe Deer, Fallow Deer and Red Foxes live on the larger islands and during the summer months they swim between them. White-tailed/Sea eagles, Canadian Geese, Eider, Loons, Arctic Terns, Ospreys, Great Cormorants and other migratory birds can be seen all summer out in the archipelago. You may even get lucky and see grey seals out fishing in the waters!
For lunch you’ll pick the sunniest most picturesque island to stop and whilst taking a break you can explore ashore, search for wildlife, go for a swim and enjoy a delicious freshly prepared meal.
Should you wish, the Captain will show you how to man the Yacht and let you sail some of the way under his careful supervision.
You will continue your sailing adventure after lunch and return to Vaxholm approximately 17:00-18:00, so you will likely be back in the city approximately 18:30-19:30.
