Half day sailing tour
Enjoy a shorter tour that lets you try your hand at sailing with time to experience the real archipelago of islets and rocks, yet still have time for other activities, such as kayaking or getting a delicious meal in Dalarö.
We set sail either in the morning or after lunch and are immediately submerged into Stockholms rich archipelago of islands and islets. Dalarö, our point of departure, is very much a part of this unique landscape. During the four hour tour, we will take time to enjoy a snack and a cup of steaming hot coffee and if we’re lucky we might spot a seal or a white-tailed sea eagle!
Your skipper will have you back in time for lunch or dinner so that you can dine in one of Dalarö’s quaint eateries or take a walk along its peaceful streets.

About our boats and skippers
When you go sailing with Vind o Vatten you meet skippers who are passionate about what they do, who own the boats they sail and who nourish a close relationship with the Stockholm archipelago. They are well educated and experienced, each one having a Ship's Officer Class VIII certificate with decades of experience sailing in the archipelago, sail racing and offshore sailing.
You will be sailing a well-equipped and comfortable size boat of 35-36 feet. These boats are fast and fun to sail, without being too lively or difficult to handle. Since we sail our own boats, we know them inside and out and are fully aware of the possibilities and limitations of each vessel. We provide wind- and waterproof clothing on all tours as well as comfortable life vests for each guest.
Where to find us
Most of our tours start from Dalarö in the southern part of the Stockholm archipelago. You can get there easily by car or by commuter train and bus from the Stockholm city centre. On occasion, we start from Svinninge in the central part of the archipelago which is also easy to get to by public transport or car.
We sail from May to September, seven days a week. The availability will be visible when you click on the button BOOK NOW. You can choose to sail with Ulrika (Arcona 36), Karin (Beason 36) or Birgitta (Linjett 35).
Don’t hesitate to send us a request by email if we don’t have availability on your preferred date.
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!
A fantastic experience
We had a great 4 hour sail with Ulrika. She was a fabulous host. She knows the wind, the water, and her boat very well. A fantastic experience overall.
A fantastic day on the water and an absolutely perfect sailing lesson!
Thank you Karin for a fantastic day on your boat! You gave us profound knowledge adjusted to our sailing level so that we were able to sail on our own the next day. It was a pleasure to spend the day together and we highly recommend Vind o Vatten! Thanks a lot!
Fantastic and unforgettable!
We are 3 Swiss people who love to sail and have always wanted to experience the Stockholm archipelago on a sailboat. Karin from Vind o Vatten made this possible. Her sailboat is moored in the port of Dalarö, a sailor’s paradise that is a 45-minute drive from Stockholm. Shortly after 10 a.m. we started – well “packed” in Karin’s sailing gear – on a 6-hour sailing tour around the island of Nämdö. Thanks to the good wind (it seems like there’s almost always wind here!) we were able to moor in a small bay and eat something for lunch. Karin is not only fluent in French and English, she is also an extremely interesting woman. We would highly recommend this sailing tour to anyone wanting to explore the archipelago.
Sail and overnight anchorage
Fantastic sailing with Karin Modigh who was keenly alive to the needs and wishes of both children and adults, and who adapted the sailing with incredible care and thoughtfulness. An unforgettable trip to Huvudskär!
Sailing with Birgitta on the Esmeralda 2 was the most memorable time of my 5 days in Stockholm. The boat is tip top and her attitude is totally cool. Birgitta’s knowledge of the archipelago is encyclopedic but she totally gets that sailing is about listening to and watching the wind and water so you have to ask questions to get the full benefit of her wisdom! I would do it again in a heartbeat.
An unforgettable trip
We went on a sailing trip with Birgitta on her beautiful boat « Esmeralda 2 ». We went around Dalarö and then the second day we sailed till Utö. It was very easy to sail and take an active role on the boat as Birgitta explained everything very clearly. She also had organized the trip in a way so we can get the most of the Archipelago : fine deli for lunch, dinner at a fancy restaurant and breakfast at a typical bakery with lots of delicious pastries. Birgitta has also been very helpful recommending things we can do while in the Archipelago. It was a unique and unforgettable experience for the whole family. I highly recommend it!
