Vaxholm is known as the capital of the Stockholm Archipelago and is one of the most popular boating destinations and ports in the islands. The most distinctive and famous building in Vaxholm is Vaxholm Fortress with its museum which is a great historic national monument to go and learn more about Stockholm’s rich past.

    If you don't manage to get a slot on this tour due to high demand, don't worry – there are plenty more ways to discover Stockholm's beauty from the water. Here are a few other boat tours we recommend checking out:

    Things to see:

    Vaxholm City

    Vaxholm is an idyllic and cozy harbor town where you walk among the local, charming shops, galleries, cafés, and restaurants and easily spend a day. Enjoy the quiet cobbled streets and wooden buildings, typical architecture of the city. Did you know, wood was the only building material allowed in Vaxholm by law up until 1912?

    Vaxholm Fortress

    Vaxholm Fortress (Fästning) is the most impressive historic building in Vaxholm, situated on a small island opposite the town of Vaxholm. The Fortress was built in the 1540s as part of the new defense along the Swedish coast and as a safeguard of Vaxholm and Stockholm, the Swedish capital. The Fortress museum has fascinating exhibits and films teaching you more about the military history of Sweden.
