Cycle through the Stockholm archipelago from island to island. You pedal through a unique landscape typical of Sweden as well as the surroundings of Stockholm.
The most metropolitan part of the great Scandinavian city combines very well with the exclusive landscape of the archipelago with its more than 30,000 islands.
Do you dare to discover Sweden by bicycle?
The first stage will start on the green island of Stockholm, Djurgården and continue along the coast until reaching Djursholm and its peculiar houses.
In addition, you will immediately see the typical Swedish landscape, since pedaling along the Bogesund Castle route you will admire the immense landscape with deciduous trees. After a few kilometers, you will reach Vaxholm, the capital of the archipelago, with its enormous fortress.
Today we will take a ferry to see Rindö and continue the route to Värmdö, right in the middle of the archipelago. Nearby, it is worth exploring the curious villages and the surrounding nature.
Crossing the impressive bridge (Djuröbron) you will arrive at the hotel with impressive views.
After breakfast, after a short ferry ride, we will arrive at Runmarö, one of the largest islands in the area and full of artists looking for inspiration. There are several points of interest here, such as Södersunda and its Båtmanstorpet house, one of the few that endured the Russian devastation of 1719. It is now a beautiful museum.
We will take another ferry to see the famous train station on the island of Sandhamn and then another that in a two-hour journey will take us back to Djurö.
Today we will pedal through Fågelbrolandet to the town of Gustavsberg. Artipelag, an important museum of modern art, is worth a visit.
The journey takes us through several postcard villages until we reach today’s destination, Saltsjöbaden, just past the Skurusund Bridge.
Today is the last day of cycling, and you will do it along some beautiful coastal trails in the Erstavik Nature Park. You will also pass by what according to UNESCO is a good example of fusion of architecture and landscape, Skogskyrkogården. It really is something that is impressive.
After a few pleasant kilometers crossing the islands of Södermalm and Långholmen, you will arrive in Stockholm.
This cycling trip through the Stockholm archipelagos includes good 3 and 4 star hotels.
