    Hi, My name is Anders, and I am a Stockholm native. I work in education and I am very interested in meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds. I grew up spending my summers boating in the archipelago. I would love to share some favorite spots where tourists normally won't get to go and experience.

  • What you will see and do

    Boat trip - Experience the archipelago like a Stockholmer:

    I will take you on a trip around the islands outside of Stockholm and we find an island to make a stop and have a meal on the cliffs shaped by the ice masses during the Ice age.
    With my Swedish motor boat classic Solö 25. You can choose to sit back and relax and enjoy the unique and beautiful scenery, or if you wish, help out navigating and maneuver the boat.

    I I want to create a unique experience of the Islands surrounding Stockholm. My goal is to help create an unforgettable vacation and help experience something ordinary tourists won't see.

    I have a minimum of 2 passangers per tour, but If you are travelling alone you are welcome to message me and I can most likely find a group for you to join.

    For groups of 4-5 people this tour will be private. Smaller groups or single travellers might share the trip with one or two other parties.
    If you prefer a private tour, please contact me for an offer!

    The tour through the archipelago with Anders was the night of our trip to Stockholm. Getting to the meeting pint was easy on the metro, the boat was comfortable and he was a very engaging host. Once we anchored at the island we did a short hike, had some great Swedish pancakes. The weather was perfect too. Our daughter said it was her favorite thing on the trip. Thank you!

    This was such a special and unique experience - we would definitely recommend! We had a beautiful day on the water and could have spent all day exploring the archipelago! As a special bonus, we enjoyed our homemade Swedish pancakes and jam that Anders made fresh that morning. You will not be disappointed!

    We loved it! It gave us the chance to experience the Archipelago like a Stockholmer and having the chance to swim in the sea on such a hot day was a treat.

    We had a wonderful evening tour of the archipelago with Anders in his boat. Such a beautiful evening, and a great spot for swimming and watching the sunset. We were very lucky with the weather being so incredibly warm! Anders is a great host, and made us feel very comfortable. Definitely recommend!

    Very different from the standard tourist canal tours. It’s a smaller, more local and personal tour - way better than the standard ones I reckon. Anders was friendly and had interesting things to say about the archipelago and Swedish culture. This tour is definitely worth it!

    Fantastic! We did the boat trip with Anders just this Saturday & had a fantastic day out on the water. He is a great host, grew up in the locality and has great knowledge about the place. We had beautiful weather and perfect for boating. He even let us derive the boat. Was definitely one of the highlights of our weekend in Stockholm. Thanks Anders,

    This is a 7-star activity. I've been living in Stockholm for a few years but to go out to the archipelago with someone who knows his way around was great. We were a group of three and the boat was really nice. Anders told us about the history of the places we visited. We stopped at a small bay for a nice hike up on the mountain followed by a swim and then a light lunch in the form of pancakes ( Anders makes the best homemade jam by the way :) ) I definitely recommend it to everyone who wants to see what makes the locals love Stockholm so much.

    This trip was an absolute highlight of our time in Sweden. We messed up the meeting spot and Anders rolled with it and picked us up as if it was all fine. Then he took us (me and my teen son) on a wonderful boating adventure that included a small island hike, swimming in the Baltic Sea, and my son having the opportunity to "captain" the boat. I had experienced some dizziness the night before and was not in great form and Anders was so gracious in helping out in this regard. I am not sure how to attach photos but more beautiful than words can describe. Anders is a wonderful, kind guide, eager to share boating and Swedish culture. Strongly recommended.

    Going out on the archipelago was an amazing experience and Anders was a thoughtful and interesting host. We loved the boat and the small lunch of Swedish pancakes and homemade jam. We took a short hike around the island we stopped yand he made us coffee while we braved a swim in the cool water. You should definitely book this tour.

    At first we struggled to understand where to meet as it is outside central Stockholm . The metro is easy to understand and accessible for people with disabilities which concerned us but the metro was excellent. Andrea drove us to where he keeps his boat. The boat itself was bigger than I imagined but is a bit basic. Anyone with reduced mobility could not access toilet! We had some challenge getting my son off the boat. I thought the trip was good value but more detail about what is on offer & accessibility would be useful pre booking

    This half day tour with Anders was really good . This experience was not like the other touristy sightseeing that we we had done in stockholm.We got to see the archipelago like a local with a stockholmer. The weather was good and Anders was really good at coordinating and picking us up from our nearest metro station .He also gave us a lot of information on stockholmers and their lives here. He has packed a very good snack for us and also vegetarian on our request . We got a chance to drive his boat and stop at an island for a bit . He was very punctual and very accomodative . totally recomend this tour !

    Me and my family did the Stockholm archipelago tour with Anders. Our family age ranged from 16 to 82! Each of us thoroughly enjoyed the tour! It was an absolute highlight of our time in Stockholm. Anders was very thoughtful, knowledgeable and patient. My son loved the opportunity to steer the boat and my daughter loved exploring one of the distant island in the archipelago! We enjoyed a delicious fizzy pear drink and fresh fruits on a warm afternoon. I would totally recommend this tour!!

    This was the highlight of our trip! Anders is really kind and he really made sure that we were enjoying and were relaxed. The views are amazing, but the best part is a short hike you can take to see the cliffs. We are vegans and Anders even prepared us a delicious vegan meal. So grateful for this experience! Anders, thank you again for everything, we can only recommend you! :)

    This was a great day out. I was with my young son and Anders brought his along for company, which worked out well. We enjoyed a boat rip through the archipelago and barbecue and a beer on one of the islands off the mainland of Stockholm. We feel privileged to have seen this side of life there. Thanks Anders!

    Fantastic! We did the boat trip with Anders just this Saturday & had a fantastic day out on the water with him. He is a great host, grew up in the locality and has been around boats since he was very young. We had beautiful weather and perfect for boating, Anders even provided us with sun cream, which we forgot! He also cooked us a very healthy lunch of local produce with fish, cheese, potato salad & melon and a beer for dessert!! Was definitely one of the highlights of our weekend in Stockholm. And we'll be back again. Thanks Anders,

    Anders was a super nice host taking very good care of all of us : It was super easy to get to the boat as Anders drove us from the metro to the boat. No packing needed : Anders prepared a very good lunch for us (adults and kids). Anders was super nice with our 7 year old son who even got to do some extra boating and fishing ! The boat is comfortable and there was really enough space for the 4 of us, the kids even got the chance to drive :). I highly recommend you to take a trip with Anders if you want to escape the city and experience the beautiful archipelago !

    Anders is a really nice host taking care of you during all activity ! We had a wonderful time on his boat ! From saltsjöbaden where his boat is parked till Napoleon's bay and back ... He will explain you stories about the area and is ready to answer all your questions. He's been grown up with a boat life and he is sharing this type of life with you. He also likes cooking and he'll share this with you too ! His vintage boat is really comfortable. If you dare Anders will even allow you to drive it ! Highly recommended for you alone, friends, families with or without children. You do not know Swedish ? Do not worry ! Anders knows English perfectly !
