Dalarö is an old maritime village that is simple to reach by car, bus, boat or commuter train from the city centre of Stockholm taking between 40-70 minutes to travel. It is located in Stockholm’s southern archipelago and is famous for its beautiful old villas, for its naval and maritime history and for its many shipwrecks. Today Dalarö is the port of the archipelago with passenger boats to the many islands and is famous for its water activities such as kitesurfing, kayaking and, of course, sailing.
The community of Dalarö is situated on a southwest headland which makes the surrounding waters the natural approach to Stockholm from the south if you are coming by boat. Dalarö is surrounded by thousands of islands in all directions, with small sheltered natural harbours easily accessible for both small and large boats.
You can find the boats of Vind o Vatten in Vadviken harbour close to Smådalarövägen 1.
