Sailing in the fantastic archipelago of Stockholm in Sweden.
A sailing holiday in Sweden, what does that look like?
Sweden may be a destination you don't think about so quickly, but Sweden has a lot to offer. Thousands of islands, marinas and a rugged coastline where you can anchor in the 'Swedish way' at one of the many islands.
The anchoring usually goes with the bow to the shore and with an anchor at the back of the sailing yacht.
Enjoy the rich nature, rocks, beautiful beaches and picturesque fishing villages. If you like fish, you can indulge yourself in the fantastic fish restaurants.
Navigation between the many islands is an important part of sailing in Sweden.
Sailing mainly takes place in the months of July to September. A special experience is that it is only dark for a few hours in the summer, so you can enjoy sailing for an extra long time.
In Sweden there is a lot of sailing and therefore there are many harbors and marinas with good facilities all along the coast.
The beautiful Stockholm archipelago seems endless, offering endless possibilities for the adventurous sailor looking to explore this jewel of a boating area.
Nearly 30,000 islands dot the seascape along Sweden's east coast, extending from the historic harbors and waterways of the city of Stockholm. The sprawling archipelago offers experiences for everyone, from adventurous sailing, hiking and exploring in remote, uninhabited wilderness, to modern fare by the fireplace of a rustic seaside cafe.
On all these islands you will find restaurants and bars and activities in the field of nature and adventure are offered. In short, the Stockholm archipelago offers a huge variety of experiences for the sailor and is located in a unique environment of Europe.
Today, 170 islands in the Stockholm archipelago (with no land connection or bridges) are inhabited, mostly seasonally by vacationers and people from Stockholm and the surrounding area with summer houses in the archipelago.
