Vind o Vatten offers skipper/instructor-led sailing tours and adventures in the Stockholm archipelago for individuals, families, tourists and small groups.

We sail comfortable boats between 34 and 36 foot. We also offer coaching and training on your own sailing boat or motorboat.

Vind o Vatten was founded in 2005 and its core idea is to adapt sailing trips to customer requirements, as well as to teach sailing on all levels while discovering the beauty of the Stockholm archipelago. 

We offer different kinds of sailing tours – from short sailing trips on weekday evenings to sailing trips for groups and families that can last from half a day up to several days. The skippers sail their own boats and they take between one and seven guests on day trips. At the moment, due to the pandemic situation, we only book families for on board accommodation.

Our ports of departure are Dalarö, Åva (just north of Dalarö) and Svinninge marina, all of them with direct access to the Stockholm archipelago with all its islands and small islets. It takes less than an hour to get to us by car from the Stockholm city centre, and you can easily reach us by public transport. On request, we can also start sailing tours from other sites in the archipelago of Stockholm.

The owner of Vind o Vatten is Birgitta Silfverhielm, a qualified and experienced sailor and instructor, who has been in the business since 1987. Birgitta runs Vind o Vatten together with Ulrika Lewander and Karin Modigh, two skippers and coaches who also take care of customer support and marketing. The full team of coaches, skippers and instructors consists of about 10 women and men – mostly women!

Over the years we have received guests from all over the world, and we look forward to keep sharing our passion for sailing with visitors from far and near.

We warmly welcome you aboard!
