As the southernmost inhabited island in Gothenburg’s southern archipelago, Vrångö has 400 inhabitants; during summer that population soars. Completely car-free, Vrångö is famous for its fine sandy beaches that locals rate as the archipelago’s best island for swimming. Large parts of the island are part of a nature reserve with groomed walking trails. Stop in to an archipelago café,  pass the marina, fishing dock, and fish shops. Take the tram from the center of Gothenburg and then transfer to the ferry to reach the idyllic Vrångö.

The comfort of Stockholm – Don’t be surprised when you fall in love with Sweden’s gracious capital. The narrow streets of Gamla Stan, the “Old Town,” are made for sunset strolls. But perhaps the most romantic way to see this city of islands is on a relaxing boat trip, cruising under historic bridges, past stunning cityscapes and the beautiful archipelago beyond.

At Djurgarden  you can have a pick-nick at Galarparken, still in the middle of the city but far from noise and too many people.

Hagaparken, located north-west of Vasa-stan on the edge of Brunnsviken inlet,  has rolling green lawns and 18th century architecture. It’s a romantic English-style park with wandering paths, scenic views and assorted pavilions.

Stockholm has 30.000 islands in the archipelago, and from central Stockholm you can reach many of them with classic white boats.  Much  of the archipelago can also be reach by other means of public transportation. You can also go on a lunch or dinner cruise in this  beautiful archipelago: www.strommakanalbolaget.se.

Yes, Stockholm is elegant, as a royal city should be. But it is also a place where you’ll feel comfortable right away. And that’s what falling in love is all about!

The Stockholm archipelago is a cluster of some 30,000 islands, skerries and rocks spreading 80 km east from the city into the Baltic Sea. Some are large inhabited islands famed for swinging summer parties and others are little more than rocky outposts or grassy knolls visited by the odd seal or kayaker.

From central Stockholm you can access the entire archipelago with classic white boats unless you want to do some kayaking or canoeing between the islands.

Much of the archipelago can also be reached by other means of public transportation.
