Holiday like the Swedes, spend a day in the Stockholm Archipelago fishing and exploring a quaint coastal town. With our Stockholm Archipelago Fishing & Vaxholm Adventure, we swap buzzing city life for an exhilarating day on the Baltic Sea.
The story about the tour
With approximately one-third of the city of Stockholm being water, it’s no wonder that many activities revolve around it. Spend a day like a local and enjoy a day in the Stockholm Archipelago, leaving the bustling city behind for the refreshing nature of our Stockholm Archipelago Fishing & Vaxholm Adventure.
Start your day trip by hopping in a private vehicle for a transfer to the archipelago destination of Vaxholm, approximately one hour away. Once you arrive in Vaxholm, known as the capital of the Stockholm archipelago, meet your certified fishing guide, who will take you out on a fishing adventure. Equipped with high-quality fishing gear, you’ll search for some common fish in the area, such as sea trout, northern pike, perch and perch pike. Hopefully, you’ll catch some too!
Snacks and beverages are available as part of the experience when you’re feeling a bit peckish, so you’ll have the energy to keep catching those fish. When four hours are up, you’ll return to Vaxholm and have some free time to enjoy the quaint archipelago town. There are excellent local places to get a bite to eat, cute shops and historical buildings to be discovered. Stroll through town or hop on the ferry to the fortress if interested. In the 1500s, Vaxholm Fortress was a strategic installation built to protect the entrance to Stockholm; today, it’s a landmark of the area.
Once you’ve enjoyed some relaxing free time, you have the option of jumping on a public ferry back to Stockholm or enjoying another private transfer to the city. Regardless of your choice, sit back and admire the picturesque journey and be greeted by the stunning view of Stockholm as you arrive back in town after your fun day on our Stockholm Archipelago Fishing & Vaxholm Adventure.

The fishing guide meets the guests in Vaxholm.
If the guests choose to take the ferry back to the city, they should know that the ferry to and from Vaxholm is often frequented by locals travelling to and from their summer homes and as a consequence, the ferry is often fully booked. Seats are not allocated.
