Itinerary

Take a ­ first stroll through Sweden’s capital and explore some of the many sights and tourist attractions. In the evening a welcome brie­fing and bike fitting (if booked) takes place. Overnight stay in Stockholm.

After breakfast you start your tour across Djurgården, the green island of Stockholm to continue along the coast to Djursholm. The suburb is popular for townsman, which you will recognise in many, beautiful houses. The last 15 kilometers are leading you through Swedish landscape until you reach Vaxholm - the capital city of the archipelago. Visit palace Bogesund or the grand fortress from 16th century which can be reached by short ferry trip.

By ferry you continue to the island of Rindö, after a short exploration trip you move on to Värmdö. You are now in the middle of the archipelago - look forward to small villages and a lot of nature. Via the impressive Djuröbron (bridge) you ­ nally reach your hotel, which is awaiting you with unforgettable views into the archipelago.

In just ­five minutes your today’s ferry brings you from Stavsnäs to Runmarö, one of the bigger islands in the archipelago. Here, well-known artists spent their summer to get some new inspiration for future projects in their idyllic summer houses. In Södersunda the house in Båtmanstorpet 95 is worth a visit. It is one of the few remaining houses from the Russian devastation around 1719 and today a private museum with thousands of old items and documents from this period. Afterwards another ferry brings you in ca. one hour to the popular island of Sandhamn with nice options for your well-deserved lunch break. Enjoy the afternoon on this favored summer island before another boat brings you within a ca. two-hour ride back to Djurö.

Via Fågelbrolandet you cycle to the village of Gustavsberg. Not far away you should visit the Artipelag, a modern art museum with impressive art and sculptures on ca. 10.000m2. Via Skurusund bridge (photo stop) you ­nally reach Saltsjöbaden, your today’s destination. The idyllic small town is a very popular local recreation area.

On your last day you cycle along wonderful coastal paths as well as a nature reserve to Erstavik. Afterwards you will pass world cultural heritage Skogskyrkogården (woodland cemetery), which is according to UNESCO an impressive example for the fusion of architecture and cultural landscape. After a few more kilometers you will be back in Stockholm again where you reach your hotel via the islands of Södermalm and Långholmen.

After breakfast your tour ends.  We are happy to book extra nights for you.
