Enjoy this small island in a perfect half day tour
A visit to Stockholm without experiencing the Archipelago is not a complete visit to Stockholm. The area with 30, 000 islands is however large and difficult to cover on a short stay. Those wanting a glimpse of it, will definitely enjoy the small group of islands called Fjäderholmarna.
You reach the main island by a 25 min boat ride from either the Old Town or the jetty at Strandvägen. On the island, as your tour guide, I will give you knowledgeable commentary of the wonderful scenery of picturesque red wooden houses, well-tasting fish smokery, homemade sweets, the skillful craft workers and the great greenery.
As I have been living here for 10 years, I give you a personal description of how people still live on the islands around Stockholm, and cope with the daily life adjusting to weather and seasonal conditions.
We met in the city centre near the boat jetty, clear the tickets and enjoy the tour through the city's waters out to the sweet little island of "Fjäderholmarna". The walk on the island is of course outdoors, so bring good clothing and shoes. We visit the trendy chocolate factory, the beer brewery, the ice cream parlor and all the craft shops including smithy, glass factory and pottery studio. There is always time for a Swedish traditional "fika" and/or a seafood lunch. I will show you where I used to live and give you some personal stories of a life on an island, so close to civilization, yet cut off in the winter with all the ice!
Meeting Location + Tour Duration
Meeting location: Meeting point: I recommend outside the Royal Dramatic Theater, but if if you prefer me meeting you at your hotel and/or another preferred location, I am flexible.
End location: Ending of tour is at the boat jetty upon arrival in city centre again. I can help arranging a taxi to where you want to go?
Duration: 4 hours
We use a tour boat from the city and on the island we walk.
