To sail Stockholm ‘s archipelago is truly amazing. During our two- and three day trips we have enough time to get to deserted 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. Spend your nights in a memorable way and camp out on the islands in a tent or enjoy the comforts and gentile rocking of the boat.

 Day program

This is an example tour. The captain customizes the day according to the weather conditions.
After being picked up by your captain we head towards the marina where our sail boat is awaiting us. We start off with a short introduction to the boat, sailing, and some safety rules. Little time is wasted, and shortly we’re leaving the harbor by motor. Not long after and together we hoist the sails and the wind takes 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! Tacking up against the winds we make our first stop at one of the islands, probably the famous Ornö. We anchor in a bay, sheltered from the wind, and enjoy some proper relaxation. You get to take a swim, enjoy the sun or explore the island. Reluctant to leave this haven of relaxation we set sail once more. But the reluctance is soon forgotten once we catch a smooth but sturdy wind from the back taking us right to our “night” island. In the evening we build a campfire and roast some marshmallows after a nice traditional dinner. Spend the night in the boat while your captain camps on the island! A magical and cozy night is guaranteed. Wake up the next day to the sound of birds and small waves breaking on the rocks. Time for breakfast! This day we explore even further into the archipelago, and against all expectations the islands get even more beautiful. Let’s try catching some fish in the afternoon! If we get lucky, we roast some over the fire in the evening. The next morning you realize that the last day of the adventure has come. But this sailing trip in the Stockholm archipelago is guaranteed to stay with you forever.
