My wife and I were lucky enough to visit friends in Stockholm recently. You can check out my other posts about Sweden here. If you get a chance to visit Stockholm, one of the first things you should do is to take a boat trip through the archipelago.
There are tourist options available, but my wife and I just took a standard ferry out to Vaxholm, which is connected to Stockholm by bus as well, if you would like to do a one way ticket. One way costs 75 SEK, ~10 USD. The trip takes roughly an hour and starts from the harbor in Stockholm. You can pay on the boat, and it doesn't seem too busy so don't worry about finding a seat.
You start in the Stockholm, Strömkajen, located in the city center, just by the Gamla Stan.
It is the dream of every Swede to own a cabin along the shore:
The homes are quite picturesque
And you can watch the ships go by:
