  • Grinda is a lovely island that plays host to hiking, swimming, kayaking, and other active adventures. Cozy cafes provide scenic views and refreshing drinks while you satisfy your appetite.
  • Finnhamn is a tiny island (only 900 m long) with beautiful woods, sheltered coves, dramatic rocky cliffs, and an endless summer vibe that's perfect for a charter yacht visit.
  • Ostholmen is a peaceful and idyllic island, with charming homes and countless opportunities to enjoy time outdoors. The public sauna provides the perfect place to relax and soak in the soothing vibes.
  • Sandhamn has secluded white sand beaches, rocky shores ideal for swimming and exploring, and a relaxing atmosphere in which time seems to almost stand still. It's an optimal location to spend a long summer day in Sweden.
  • Utö is an unspoiled Baltic paradise, with gorgeous views and a timeless innocence. Enjoy a leisurely bike ride, hiking, outdoor sports, or a relaxing day on the beach.
  • Nynäshamn is the southernmost destination in the Swedish archipelago and is an island filled with local history. Rune stones dating to Viking times dot the island. The fishing port is home to restaurants, shops, and entertainment.

Shopping, dining, outdoor sports, sightseeing, or just easy relaxation in the warm sun and sand – the islands of the Swedish archipelago have something for everyone!

NOTE: Please always be aware of the shallow areas and skerries (rocky reefs) around the islands – the entire archipelago demands serious attention to sea charts and a sharp look out. Please note that the main inlet to Stockholm has heavy traffic of cargo ships and ferries.

 

Spotlight On: 'Allemansrätten'

Allemansrätten (“freedom to roam” or “everyman's right”) is local Swedish law and practice that allows anyone the right to enjoy nature, including on privately owned land. As long as you're outside the immediate area of a private home, respectful of Nature and other people, and “do not disturb or destroy,” you can even camp for up to three nights without special permitting.

This commitment to allowing everyone to share in the natural beauty of the region is another reason the Swedish archipelago is a classic & loved charter destination.

Yacht Charter Sweden - Sailing in Sweden

 Sweden Archipelago Seasons & Climate

Although the common imagery of Sweden is a winter wonderland, sailing conditions in the Swedish archipelago are warmer and drier than you might expect. The Gulf Stream causes warm waters to gather along Sweden's west coast, which creates ideal summer sailing conditions during the high season of early April through the beginning of September:

  • Summer high temperatures in Stockholm average 20° C, with the potential for temperatures to soar to a balmy 30° C.
  • Rainfall and winds during summer are very light, except for the brief August rainy period.
  • Summer daylight in the Baltic can last up to 20 hours long from mid-June through mid-August. Sunsets are very late and the evenings are bright.

Summer sailing conditions in Sweden are spectacular, almost unique in the world for creating warm days that seem almost endlessly bright and thrilling. Book your dream Sweden yacht charter vacation and enjoy the spectacular sights and adventures of a lifetime!

With 30,000+ islands within easy reach, you could sail the Stockholm archipelago for months and never run short of delightful, sunny, charming destinations.

Our first sample Stockholm archipelago itinerary stays relatively close to home, from inner- to mid-archipelago, where you'll find a breathtaking variety of destinations just a few hours' smooth sailing away.

Saturday

Your sailing holiday begins in Vaxholm, the “capital” of the Stockholm archipelago. Located just east of Stockholm, Vaxholm (the name of both the town and the island it's on) is a gorgeous and quaint Baltic destination, home to picturesque turn-of-the-last-century pastel houses, delightful family-owned cafes and restaurants, and charming little shops on cobbled streets.

Visit Vaxholm Fortress (built in 1544), a famous castle that for centuries has guarded the approaches to Stockholm. The area is also home to an amazingly diverse selection of scenic pine-clad islets and sheltered rocky coves, perfect for a day's exploring and relaxation.

Sunday

Grinda is a delightfully unspoiled island, sprinkled with cozy, rustic wooden cottages among elegant pine woods. Even from the waters offshore, you can glimpse deer and foxes frolicking. In medieval times, this island was the haunt of buccaneers and smugglers. Today, it's home to the Grinda Wardshus, a hotel resort noted for its woodsy charm.

Grinda is a favorite destination for outdoor day activities, including hiking, paddle boarding, bird watching, and more. Seals and marine sea life are common sights, at play in their natural habitat.

The sauna on Ostholmen is a can't miss attraction; it's free, but book reservations ahead to ensure you have a place. Möja has been inhabited since Viking times and is a wonderful place to commune with nature while biking or hiking. Kayaking is a uniquely beautiful and private experience – much of the surrounding waters and islets are nature reserves, where you can observe wildlife and Baltic flora.
