We provide guided boat trips to the royal palaces of Drottningholm and Gripsholm, as well as one of Europe’s finest baroque castles, Skokloster. Here you can take a stroll through the royal gardens, enjoy a picnic and join a guided tour.
Excursion to world heritage site Drottningholm Palace
At Drottningholm Castle you can explore the famous historical grounds with highlights like Queen Hedwig Eleonora’s royal chambers, the grand Palace Park, the Royal Court Theatre and the Chinese Pavillion. The royal family moved in to Drottningholm Palace in 1981 and it is still the King of Sweden’s permanent residence. There is also a café and souvenir shop on the grounds.
