Steamboat tours

Enjoy the archipelago from one of our classic steamboats, dating from the early years of last century. 

Storska╠êr015 

Originally built to accomodate the new needs of bourgeoisie, travelling between the city and their summer houses, the vessels still serve Stocholmers and tourists who want to cruise the archipelago in style. These days they are in service from May to September. 

Both S/S Storskär and S/S Norrskär have fully licensed restaurants, as well as cafeterias that serve snacks, sandwiches, coffee/tea, and beer. Book your table in the restaurants through the online booking service at the bottom of the page.

Starting point is Strömkajen, near Grand Hôtel, in central Stockholm. Nearest Metro station is Kungsträdgården, Blue Line.

Fares and tickets

Since the steamboats are part of a regular service it is not possible reserve seats onboard. On a sunny day or if you have a table reservation in the restaurant, we recommend you to be at Strömkajen at least 30 minutes before departure to be sure to get at seat. A table reservation does not give you priority in the queue. 

You buy tickets for the journey on board and the fare is based on the return fare for furthest point you travel to. The fare is the same on all Waxholmsbolaget services and there is no extra fee for going on the steamboats.
