We came to the pier without any plans for which ferry to take or where to go. The guys working on the steamboat explained the system to us (they're government operated) and even helped us check for return ferries from grinda (where we ended up...More

When we came to Stockholm, I told my wife, it is a must to see the Schaeren Garden. Only way is by ship, and it is a must to come to Waxholm on this tour. Unfortunately we had not the best weather for such tour,...More

When I was in Stockholm, I took a trip with one of Waxholmsbolaget's stemships to the island of Vaxholm. The ticket system is very flexible: you can jump on-jump off all day, and in this way see several archipelago islands. There is a boat every...More

Highly recommend a trip around the archipelago with Waxholmsbolaget. We had a choice between the Strömma archipelago cruise, which was about two hours long, or taking a Waxholmsbolaget boat to Vaxholm. We decided to go with Waxholmsbolaget because we wanted a longer trip around the...More

All the year around you can get on a Waxholmsbolaget's boat that will take you to numerous islands in the Stockholm archipelago. No need to book beforehand, buy your ticket on board, sit comfortably inside or catch the sun on sun deck outside. There is...More

I must say the attention and the sail was very nice. Considering there was some wind going on. Place clean. Bathrooms well functioning. Amazing views. Though... The windows of the boat were TOO dirty that photographing couldn't be possible. There is a "sun deck" or...More

We took a bus to Vaxholm, briefly toured the town, and then took the ferry ride back. The ferry ride was the highlight. Beautiful scenery.
