The Stockholm archipelago, Stockholms skärgård or skärgården, is a group of thousands of islands in Sweden, accessible from Stockholm as well as the towns of Vaxholm and Norrtälje.



Vaxholm is the "capital" of the northern archipelago, a hub for many boat routes, also accessible by public transport buses.

Other destinations


Get in

The archipelago can be accessed from downtown Stockholm.

Get around

The two major shipping companies are the public-transport Waxholmsbolaget, and the private-owned Strömma.

Waxholmsbolaget's regular boats stop at most docks. Strömma is aimed at major tourist destinations, faster but costlier.

The Baltic Sea ferries offer an elevated view of the archipelago.






Most boats in regular traffic have a simple bar, offering regular beer and wine.
