Sweden's largest city convinces many international guests each year with its mix of urban design and breathtaking nature. Rent a sailboat in Stockholm! The beautiful royal city is surrounded by the gulf of the Baltic Sea with numerous bays, islets and about 24,000 larger and smaller islands. The unique geographical location makes the city a paradise for water and boat enthusiasts, as almost 30% of the total area is water.
Sweden's unique cultural and historical history is also reason enough to explore the history of Sweden in numerous museums and churches. Visit Stockholm's old town, the so-called Gamla Stan. The oldest houses in Gamla Stan date back to the 13th century and many of the architecturally valuable buildings are a feast for the eyes. The cultural highlight of Stockholm is the Vasa Museum, which tells of Scandinavia's maritime past and displays the sunken ship Vasa from 1628.
The price of a sailboat rental in Stockholm depends on a number of factors such as the time of year, how many people are on board, and the size and model of the sailboat that you choose. Of course, the price will be higher depending on amenities included and services such as having a skipper or crew on board. The average price of a sailboat rental in Stockholm is €3,600/week in the high season and €2,200/week in the low season for 8 people.
There are few ways to travel that are as peaceful, yet as fun, as sailing is. Letting the wind be the engine that carries you over the waves is a great way to be out in nature and gives you the feeling of being in harmony with nature. Sailing is perfect for a relaxed family holiday, or a trip out with friends! For all those who prefer sailing to be an adventure, where skills are put to the test and adrenaline pumps, we also have some sailing boats, with skippers, where you can try out what it's like to be a racing sailor.
Another advantage of renting a sailboat in Stockholm is that, in addition to the Baltic Sea, you also get access to Lake Mälaren, Sweden's third-largest lake. Instead of heading outwards, you can instead head into Lake Mälaren to access the swimming and fishing that the lake offers.
Places to sail to on Lake Mälaren include:
If you have not been to Stockholm before we recommend the Old Town. It may be the most obvious tip for tourists, but the winding cobbled streets and beautiful architecture with houses dating back to the 13th century are well worth a visit. Plus, it's surrounded by water, which in summer means you can eat ice cream by the water and soak up the sun.
Since we like boats and shipping, even historically, we can't help but also recommend the Vasa Museum. For those of you who haven't been there before, it really is a special experience to see such a large and old ship on land, with much of its decoration intact.
If you are going to stay overnight on your chartered sailing boat you have two choices, either you can moor in any of the guest harbours and have access to all the amenities such as toilets, showers, electricity and food shops. Your other option is to moor in some of the natural harbours. Mooring in a port is a good option for those who prioritise comfort, and natural harbours are a good option for those who prefer to be out in nature. Being able to get around the coves and islets on board a sailing boat increases your options and freedom during your holiday. You can get between any islands you want without having to worry about crowded boats and lists of boat trips. What's more, in many places you can swim directly from the boat, avoiding crowded beaches and congestion. Often you can also ask the boat owner about the best places to moor your boat.
For those who would like an outdoor adventure on land and enjoy good hike, be sure to check out Tyresta National Park. You can get to the park relatively easily from Stockholm by train and then bus and it has some incredibly old forest and a very varied landscape with several lakes and a coastline too if you want to get here by boat. A large part of the area was destroyed by wildfire many years ago but this has in many ways revitalised life in this part of the national park and the variation in landscape where the wildfire occurred is absolutely incredible - not to be missed.
With a free account on Click & Boat you can easily compare all the sailing boats in Stockholm and contact the boat owners. This gives you the opportunity to discuss all your individual questions, wishes and plans about renting a sailboat directly with the owner. If you don't have the right experience or want to relax completely, you can include a skipper to take care of the navigation during the boat trip. Want to learn how to sail? Some boat owners even offer courses on board the boat over a day trip!
Don't forget to read the various boat adverts to see what is included and not included in the offer. In some cases, you can get life jackets, wakeboards, swim rings and other extras. All to make your sailing trip a tailor-made and unique experience for you!
Whether with family or friends, a sailboat offers a flexible holiday with plenty of space on board to relax. You can decide which beautiful place you want to stay. Book your sailing holiday now!
