Even though the 30 000 islands outside of Stockholms central is just a boat ride away, I’ve never been to a single island before. So bad, I know! Annie, on the other hand, is often out in the archipelago and even has a house on one of the islands and has a web page where you can buy her archipelago photographs. Check it out here.
We took a bus from Slussen to Stavsnäs, and there we jumped on a boat to Sandhamn. If you have a public transportation card in Stockholm (SL Access Card) for 30 days or more, you can actually ride the boats in the archipelago for free during winter. If you don’t have the card or planning a visit during the summer, you can buy tickets onboard the boats. We took the first boat of the day and watched the sunrise from the boat and had some breakfast in the small café.
We got off the boat 8:16 am and started to explore Sandhamn. Such a cute little town!
