Go on an 8-hour journey from Stockholm to the outer archipelago, cruising the shallow Strömma Canal on board the only boat capable of navigating the narrow passages. Disembark to explore the island’s bohemian streets, and enjoy classic Swedish food.
What to Expect
Climb aboard the M/S Strömma Kanal, the only passenger ship able to navigate the shallow canals en route to the outer archipelago from Stockholm.
En route from Nybrokajen harbor, you will navigate several passages, boarded by lovely archipelago houses of elaborate woodwork and beautiful gardens. A guide will explain the route and your destination, the island of Sandhamn, approximately 30 miles (50 kilometers) east of the city.
Records first mention Sandhamn in the 1280s, when King Magnus Barnlock donated it to the abbey of St Claire in Stockholm. A popular place for pleasure boaters, the island’s approximate 100 permanent residents swell to 3,000 in the summer, while the harbor can take up to 350 ships.
From the sundeck of the M/S Strömma Kanal, enjoy a great view of the passages of the Stockholm Archipelago. The on board restaurant serves lunch and dinner (optional), while lighter refreshments are available in the cafeteria. Disembark on the island for a guided tour, and learn about Sandhamn’s rich history as a destination beloved by sailors from all over the world.
