A summer in Stockholm's archipelago is hard to beat. Stockholm's fantastic island world invites you to many different excursions. Here, we share three tips for islands where you can sunbathe, swim, and enjoy outdoor activities.
Svartsö has great walking and biking paths and is one of the most green, leafy and beautiful island in the middle archipelago. The environment offers both woods and cliffs, and there are bikes available for rent.
Don't miss the small lakes on the island, perfect for a swim if the ocean is a bit too cold. There is a restaurant at the island and several different options for accommodation.
Take the Cinderellabåtarna directly from central Stockholm to Svartsö. Take the opportunity to enjoy the sun deck on the boat.
A classic and popular destination as well as an international sailing centre in the Stockholm archipelago. At Sandhamn you will discover typical archipelago houses and narrow alleys, shops, restaurants, hotels, a coffee shop and a bakery.
Take a swim in the ocean - sunbathe on a sandy beach or relax on the sun-warmed cliffs. One of the archipelagos most beautiful beaches is located at Sandhamn, Trouville. It is located on the south side of the island and is known for its white sand and beautiful ocean view.
Take the Cinderellabåtarna from Stockholm - a comfortable and enjoyable journey through the archipelago.
Only an hour away from the city is Grinda - a nature reserve with pine trees and open scenery. Take a swim in the ocean, jump in the water from the cliffs, or visit the more child-friendly sandy beaches.
You can also rent kayaks and boats that are offered by Grinda Wärdshus. Or maybe test your volleyball skills at the volleyball ground?
The island also offers restaurants, accomodation and a floating sauna!
Enjoy a nice journey with the Cinderellabåtarna. The boat departs from Strandvägen in the heart of the city.
