The Stockholm Archipelago
Stockholm is the Swedish capital and the country’s cultural, political and economic center. The Stockholm archipelago is a vast system of islands and islets in which to sail. Popular islands in the archipelago are: Möja, Runmarö, Nämdö, Dalarö, Finnhamn, Grinda, Husarö, Ingarö, Isö, Ljusterö, Nämndö, Rödlöga, Tynninge, Utö, Svartsö and Värmdö. The islands are close together and unaffected by tides so sailing in this area is simple and relaxing. Gothenburg is Sweden’s largest port and a good starting point from which to explore the Swedish West coast. The West coast is the sunniest part of Sweden and good weather is common here during the summer. Countless islands lie within reach of Gothenburg, but some interesting destinations are: Marstrand, Tjorn, Vinga, Rönnäng, Smögen, Skagen, Åstol, Mollosund and Gullholmen.
