Travel tips

Coast ferries

Sweden has an abundance of experiences of nature for all occasions and tastes, from extreme adventures to utter peace in the wilderness.

The archipelagos in Sweden are unique and the Swedes have a particularly intimate and loving relationship to them. Both Stockholm and Gothenburg archipelagos are easy to reach with coastal ferries. Fjäderholmarna for example is only a 20 min boat trip from central Stockholm. 

The archipelagoes embrace a wide range of ecosystem and plant and animal biotopes. The natural beauty, the distinctive cultural heritage and the variety of landscapes make them very valuable for outdoor activities and recreation. The archipelagos of Stockholm and Gothenburg are probably the most well known Swedish archipelagos but there are archipelagos from north to south. Find out more about Sweden's other archipelagos
