Sweden offers relaxed sailing on the east or west coast, both with islands of outstanding natural beauty.
"Just to say that if there is only one place in the world that you should charter make it the Stockholm Archipelago! The beauty and interest factor is stunning. Overall it's easy sailing, in most places like sailing on very large lakes. The closer you get to the open water of the Baltic, the quieter it became and nowhere did it ever seem crowded. Guest harbours all superb and natural harbours stunning. Every night the water became glass like and we had the quietest nights on board ever. A memorable and thoroughly enjoyable charter." P.M. 2015
Charter a yacht and explore the hundreds of offshore islands off the east coast of Sweden from Stockholm. These archipelagos form a necklace of islands with sheltered natural harbours and traditional fishing villages.
From the marina at Saltsjo-Duvnas you can sail into the Stockholm Archipelago, which stretches about 60km to the east. It consists of around 24,000 islands and islets, perfect to explore on a sailing holiday. Visit the larger islands of Möja, Runmarö and Nämdö and on the eastern edge of the archipelago is Sandhamn, the area’s most popular spot, with a picturesque marina, good restaurants and an excellent beach.
A sailing holiday allows you to visit quaint fishing villages, with cafes and restaurants serving fresh seafood. Explore islands with small fishing communities and islands which are completely deserted – one thing is certain, a yacht charter holiday in Sweden will be entirely unique.
