We did the dinner cruise despite rain and the views were nice. Yet the food was at best mediocre (little taste) and the service very poor. First we were served a rose that we had not ordered, but rather belonged to the couple at the...More

We came to the pier without any plans for which ferry to take or where to go. The guys working on the steamboat explained the system to us (they're government operated) and even helped us check for return ferries from grinda (where we ended up...More

Highly recommend a trip around the archipelago with Waxholmsbolaget. We had a choice between the Strömma archipelago cruise, which was about two hours long, or taking a Waxholmsbolaget boat to Vaxholm. We decided to go with Waxholmsbolaget because we wanted a longer trip around the...More

All the year around you can get on a Waxholmsbolaget's boat that will take you to numerous islands in the Stockholm archipelago. No need to book beforehand, buy your ticket on board, sit comfortably inside or catch the sun on sun deck outside. There is...More

I must say the attention and the sail was very nice. Considering there was some wind going on. Place clean. Bathrooms well functioning. Amazing views. Though... The windows of the boat were TOO dirty that photographing couldn't be possible. There is a "sun deck" or...More
