"Archipelago lifeline" Vaxholm Local Custom Tip by Sjalen

Vaxholm Local Customs: 1 reviews and 1 photos


The boats between Stockholm and the hundreds of islands do not carry just people but also goods. Vaxholm is one of the last points easily reached from the mainland, where locals and summer cottage owners alike can buy building material for their homes and get it delivered to their islands by the bigger boats carrying cranes. These boats are even marked in the timetable so people can plan their deliveries.
