ADVENTURE IN THE STOCKHOLM ARCHIPELAGO
This three-day adventure in Stockholm’s northern archipelago offers a world-famous, expansive waterscape with rugged cliffs, stunning greenery and fascinating wildlife and nature. In the company of a small group, led by experienced guides, you’ll fish your own starter, paddle through the outer archipelago of Roslagen and enjoy the best archipelago cuisine has to offer. The accommodation itself is an experience; one night you sleep in a tent on a small island overlooking the sea, while the following night is spent in a luxury archipelago host house.
DAY 1: AMONG COPS AND SKERRIES
After arriving at Furusund Inn, a full day of fishing and nature experiences awaits. With the Lake & Sea Guides you will explore islands and islets, discover a fishing spot or two and with a bit of luck you will see both sea eagles and seals. During the day, homemade lunch and refreshments are served before heading to a specially selected, secluded island. On the island, the guide from Kayak & Outdoor Life will meet you together with a wilderness chef. Now it’s time to bring out the adventurer in you and set up the tent that will be your sleeping place for the night. For the evening, a three-course dinner is prepared over an open fire, the menu based on local ingredients and the fish you caught. As the evening draws to a close, it’s a good time to watch the sunset and starry skies from your tent.
DAY 2: IN THE MIDDLE OF NATURE
The day dawns on the island and the wilderness chef serves breakfast on the rocks. The theme for day two is kayaking. During the day, accompanied by your guide, you will explore the waters of one of Stockholm’s most beautiful kayaking areas. Before setting off, the guide will go through the safety and technical procedures to ensure that everyone feels safe on the trip. After lunch on the rocks, it’s time to paddle back to the island, enjoying a classic Swedish coffee on the way. Once back on the island, a boat awaits with destination Furusund.
At Furusund Inn, a luxury archipelago inn, you stay in a double room with a sea view. The inn is next to one of Stockholm’s main shipping routes, Furusunds trail, which has been used for centuries by sailors heading east. Over time, Furusund was transformed into a famous bathing and spa resort, and that is where the focus is still today. Why not take the opportunity to relax in the sauna or take a refreshing dip before dinner is served? This dinner is also a three-course affair and the ingredients are both locally sourced and seasonal.
DAY 3: EXPLORE FURUSUND
The day begins with a buffet breakfast, served in the orangery of the inn and overlooking the fairway. Day three offers a guided walk around Furusund and a chance to immerse yourself in Swedish archipelago history. On the walk around the island, you’ll stroll along lush forest paths, admire the archipelago scenery, spot sailing boats in the harbor and the island’s red cottages that have withstood the elements for years. Furusund is a coastal gem that reminds you of the bygone days in this part of the archipelago. The walk is rounded off with a late lunch at the inn before it’s time to say goodbye to the Stockholm archipelago for the time being.
