When you want to experience the archipelago, year round

Just an hour away from Stockholm by archipelago ferry, Vaxholm is often called the capital of the archipelago. This may be because of Vaxholm’s history and the fact that when you disembark you are stepping right into a vibrant maritime village with genuine restaurants and picturesque shops, framed by the grand natural surroundings of the islands, full of walking trails, paddling routes and fishing waters. And perhaps best of all – you can do it year round.
