If you dream of embarking on an unforgettable Scandinavian journey, chartering a yacht in the Stockholm Archipelago is as perfect as it gets! Endearingly referred to as “the Venice of the North” or “Beauty on Water”, Sweden’s capital, Stockholm boasts of 14 picturesque islands connected by no fewer than 50 bridges. A delightful retreat offering something for everyone, its unspoiled coastline has beautiful beaches, the extraordinary verdant landscapes are absolutely breathtaking, and for guests that enjoy sightseeing there are plenty of cultural and architectural attractions.
As the Baltic’s largest port, Stockholm is one of the most popular starting points for yacht charters in Scandinavia. The archipelago features over 20,000 islands and islets and is a prime locale for a luxurious spring or summer sailing getaway. Each island is unique in its offerings with vast options suited both for guests looking to enjoy a relaxing yachting holiday and those that desire adventure.
Stockholm’s historic Gamla Stan (Old Town), with its charming cobblestone streets lined with trendy boutiques, world-class restaurants, and quaint seaside cafes, all housed in buildings dating back to the 12th century, is an idyllic area to explore. One attraction not to miss in Gamla Stan is the Royal Palace, one of the largest palaces in Europe. History buffs meanwhile will appreciate a stop at the Vasa Museum on the island of Djurgarden, where the seventeenth century warship Flagship Wasa, which sank on its maiden voyage in 1628 is on display.
A yacht charter in Stockholm would not be complete without a stop to the island of Sandhamn, home to the Royal Yacht Club and the most picture-perfect long, white sand beaches, of which a favorite is Trouville. One of the largest islands in the archipelago, Ljusterö will appeal to nature enthusiasts, the highlight being the Östra Lagnö nature reserve which boasts of wildlife trails, wonderful bathing cliffs, and beautiful seaside vistas.
This summer, the exceptional sailing yacht REE will be available for charter in the amazing Stockholm Archipelago at the weekly rate of €49,950 plus expenses.
