What would be a trip to Stockholm without visiting the impressing skerries? This is exactly why todays stage leds you with the bike to Vaxholm.

Back to Stockholm you get by a ferry, which approx. takes 1 hour.
Today’s stage takes you to a large conservation area with diverse landscapes and many lakes. Today’s destination is the lovely bathing place in Saltsjöbaden.
You cycle to a peninsula, called Djurgården and you pass the Astrid-Lindgren Museum Junibacken and the Vasa Museum.
