Book a Boat Ticket or Berth in the Guest Harbour
Are you coming with your own boat, or do you want to go with Strömma Kanalbolaget's boat from, for example, Stockholm, Hovgården, Mariefred, Härjarö, or Södertälje?
In the booking confirmation, a promotional code is given which gives you a discounted boat trip with Strömma Kanalbolaget - here you can book your ticket. You book your round-trip boat trip on the day of check-in. The boat ticket is still valid for the return journey on the day of check-out. PLEASE NOTE that the boat to Härjarö and Södertälje only runs every other day.
If you come with your own boat, we recommend that you pre-book a boat berth in Birka's guest harbor to guarantee a spot for your boat.
