It’s called Stockholms closest archipelago islands, which of course refers to the fact that it only takes 20 minutes by boat to get there. During summer, you can catch a ferry to the island from both Strandvägen and Slussen, with Strömma, Waxholmsbåtarna or Fjäderholmslinjen.

Here’s three recommendations for things to do on Fjäderholmarna:

1. Visit the restaurant Fjäderholmarnas Krog or The Smokery. Here you’ll find delicious Swedish food – everything from classics to crayfish.

2. Enjoy a drink at Fjäderholmarnas own brewery. Here you’ll find thirst quenching beer directly from the island. Yum!

3. Buy a souvenir at one of the many craftshops available here, everything from glass blowing to weaving can be found here.

And if you’re there on a sunny day, don’t forget a towel to take a dip in the water from the many cliffs found here!
