We chose to travel to and from Mariefred and Gripsholm Castle on this wonderful little steam ship. Despite its 115 years it churns quietly and powerfully through the water to the sound of shovelling coal. It is very much a working boat, not one built...More

Fabulous atmosphere at this boat from 1903 that has never missed to departure a single year. If you want a meal (and that’s recommended) be sure to book in advance. A piece of Swedish history. Go with this boat if you have the chance.

Beautiful restored steamboat. You can partly look into the engine room, and the scenery is just stunning. Plenty of space inside in case of bad weather. Plenty of space outside in case of good weather. They only operate during summer months.

The final journey of our cycling holiday....to return to Stockholm. No problem in bringing our luggage and bikes on board. Straightforward and efficient journey; on time but very 'different'.

We went on a Tuesday to Mariefred, buying the ticket was not the easiest. Once we had found where the boat goes from a very snappy lady in a nearby kiosk (the only unhelpful person we met during our entire time in Sweden) told us...More

A 3 hour trip on an original steam boat through the archipelago to Mariefred. Beautiful scenery, a little windy and chilly but downstairs inside was an option too. Easy to take bikes and luggage too. Cafeteria and restaurant facilities. If you have a free day...More
