I really enjoyed this trip into wild nature. A big, big lake, very peaceful, where you can just walk around or ride a bike. Perfect for kids. Relaxing and smooth.

Malardrotningen Hotel /Yacht would be fun for kids, although cabins are small and you would need multiple cabins if you have more than two people in your party.
