Stockholm, strategically built where the freshwater Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea, shows her best side to her waterways. Often referred to as Beauty on Water, Stockholm is built upon 14 different islands and the mainland, all linked by more than 50 bridges. Water plays and important role in everyday life, and boating, swimming and fishing are popular activities in this capital city where more than a third of the total surface area is water. Incidentally, an additional one-third is comprised of parks, open space and green belts.
Board a boat and cruise the glittering waters of the Baltic Sea.
Enjoy a glass of sparkling wine and some dry snacks as you take in the scenery.
You'll cruise along Strandvägen, the most exclusive street in Stockholm, past the impressive Vasa Museum
Continue further into the Eco-Park area and through the Bay of Djurgårdsbrunn, viewing the embassy district, the TV Tower and the Maritime Museum. Stockholm National City Park contains rare species of plants and insects not found elsewhere in Sweden, along with hundreds of protected and architecturally unique buildings -- Rosendal Palace, the Thiel Gallery and Waldemarsudde.
Watch for the lush park areas of Djurgården before you head out towards Fjäderholmarna, the Feather Islands -- these are a popular recreation area and feature lively bird colonies. You'll cruise around the islands before returning to the city and the ship.
It is an approximately 200-yard walk to the motor launch. Participants must be able to climb onto and off the boat. Tour is available only on select sailings.
