The Stockholm archipelago lends itself as the perfect setting for a summer party. Here we have gathered our top six places to host the celebration of a lifetime! They are all set in the gorgeous surroundings of the Stockholm archipelago, but are all unique in their own different ways.
The small island of Badholmen is situated just outside Vaxholm. When you book a venue at Badholmen you get the entire island to yourself! There is plenty of room for outdoor games, socialising and if you are planning a wedding you could even have the service outside, overlooking the sea. The island sports picturesque green lawns, a sandy beach and smooth rocks – perfect for an evening barbeque! Depending on how big your party is, there are two restaurants to choose from. It really doesn’t get more idyllic than this!
Vaxholm Kastell looms on a small island just outside of Vaxholm. Originally built to defend the city from naval attacks, it is today mainly used to host events, conferences and activities. A party venue has been established in the old armour storage underneath the fortress. Under the beautifully vaulted ceilings you can find an atmospheric dining hall in Restaurant Pansarbatteriet, a lit-up bar and a spacious dance floor. A party here is certainly a once in a lifetime experience!
When you step onboard this beautiful archipelago ship from 1912 it’s almost like travelling back through time. You can choose to cruise through the Stockholm archipelago or Lake Mälaren, and there is also the option of stopping to pick up guests on the way. The food is cooked on board by the ship’s restaurateurs and is made using seasonal and locally sourced produce. Stromma has a fleet of several archipelago ships to choose from to accommodate parties of all sizes. The best way of experiencing the archipelago!
