Length: ~9 km
Time: about 2 hours + optional breaks for swimming / picnic / hiking
Level: beginners friendly


Get a glimpse of Stockholm Archipelago and discover two different sides of this amazing place. There is maginificent Bogesund nature reserve with outstanding nature just around the corner. On the other hand you will see historic and cultural sights, among others Vaxholm Fortress (Vaxholms Fästning), Norrhamnen (North Harbour in Vaxholm with traditional fishing cottages). If you are planning picnic and swimming there is a nice spot on Kullö island.

Half of this route leads through sheltered water, without traffic of ferries and bigger vessels. Other half leads closer to the main waterway however you don’t have to cross it. Watch out for ferries because they have stops on Edholma island.

*You should always adjust the route to your (and your friends) kayaking skills, experience as well as sea and weather conditions.
