Stockholm by the water

Stockholm by water

Stockholm is built on 14 islands, scattered like green gems in water so clean that you can go swimming in the city centre. Rent your own island, go kayaking with your group or enjoy dinner on a steamboat.

Venture out on a speedboat

Jump into a waterproof suit and onto a speedboat which powers out to sea at up to 50 knots. The final destination is an exquisite dinner venue in the stunning archipelago. This is one of many ways to experience Stockholm by water.

Rent your own island in the archipelago

The archipelago is literally on Stockholm’s doorstep. The 30,000 islands have an irresistible appeal with a pristine and almost sacral beauty. Rent an entire island and get there by light aircraft, helicopter or boat – guaranteed to be a truly unforgettable experience.

The archipelago by sailboat, kayak or steamboat

Enjoy dinner on a 19th century steamer and admire the breathtaking scenery. Sailing and kayaking are more adventurous options, as well as exceptional teambuilding activities.

Take your group skating

Skating is a favorite activity among Stockholmers during the winter. Glide across frozen lakes or venture out in the archipelago. The view of the winter landscape is spectacular.
