Stockholm Archipelago 1-Hour Tour by RIB Speed Boat

1. Stockholm Archipelago 1-Hour Tour by RIB Speed Boat

Experience adrenaline thrills in the Stockholm Archipelago on board an RIB speed boat, and enjoy a fast and exciting adventure on the Baltic Sea. Make your way to the Blaiseholmen Peninsula to meet your skipper and rigid inflatable boat (RIB). Listen to a short briefing on what to expect during the boat ride. Then, change into your waterproof gear and life jacket (provided). Hop into the boat and grab the railing - it's going to be a bumpy ride! Pass the Nationalmusem (Stockholm National Museum) and scenic urban coast as you leave the city. Take a loop around Djurgården to marvel at the Gröna Lund amusement park, Vasa Museum and Prince Eugens Waldemarsudde Museum. The boat will then pick-up speed as it races out towards the idyllic Stockholm Archipelago at speeds of up to 40 miles per hour. (64 kilometers per hour). As you reach the island of Fjäderholmarnas, you've entered the heart of the archipelago. Look at the rocky, tree-covered islands that dot the Baltic Sea. Some are home to pastel-colored wooden dwellings and small fishing villages, but many are uninhabited. Slow down at the island of Vaxholm to appreciate the mammoth Vaxholm Fortress, constructed in the 1500s. After enjoying the bracing wind and salty water, head back to the start point.

Pleasant experience in every way - the boat arrived in good time. Captain who gave clear instructions and checked regularly so everyone on the boat was comfortable. We also had great weather and some waves that we could jump on. We were also with a group of children from the age of 10 and all the children were super happy with it!

Strong moment in sensation while discovering part of the Stockholm archipelago. I totally recommend this activity which allows you to visit in an atypical way.

A very nice walk for a first discovery of the Swedish capital. The anecdotes are very interesting and we even learned things from the inhabitants afterwards!

Knowledgeable guide who made you feel safe. Such a wonderful experience to swish near nature and the water. The time just went by too fast.

Amazing experience on the speed boat seeing the gorgeous sites of the Swedish Archipelago
