Vind o Vatten offers skipper and instructor-led sailing tours and adventures in the Stockholm archipelago. We cater to individuals, families, tourists and small groups and sail in comfortable boats between 35 and 36 feet. We also offer coaching and training on your own sailboat.
Vind o Vatten was founded in 2005 with the core idea of sharing our passion for sailing the unique waters of Stockholm’s archipelago. Our tours and courses are adapted to meet our customers needs while discovering and sharing the beauty of these waters.
We are a small yacht operator offering short day excursions to overnight sailing tours lasting up to several days. Each boat takes between one and six guests on day trips, and up to four guests on overnight tours.
Dalarö, our port of departure, has direct access to the Stockholm archipelago with all of its islands and small islets.
Vind o Vatten meets all the requirements for boats and skippers set by the Swedish Transport Agency and other authorities. Our participants and guests are insured while sailing with us and we provide both life jackets and sailing gear. The majority of the skippers are women who sail their own boats. Welcome to a unique yacht operator!
By car it takes less than an hour to Dalarö from Stockholms city centre and with public transport it takes about an hour and a half. Upon request, it is possible to even embark on our sailing tours from other sites in the archipelago.
Birgitta Silfverhielm, the founder of Vind o Vatten, is a qualified instructor and experienced sailor who has been in the business of sailing since 1987. Birgitta runs Vind o Vatten together with Ulrika Lewander and Karin Modigh, two skippers who know not only the ropes of marketing and customer support but are seasoned and experienced sailors and instructors. All skippers in Vind o Vatten own their own boat and together with the other coaches and instructors, they make a highly qualified team including some of Sweden’s best competitive sailors!
Over the years we have received guests from all over the world and we look forward to sharing our passion for sailing in the Stockholm archipelago with visitors from far and near. We sail in English, French and Swedish.
Warm welcome aboard!
