Photo Tour: Stockholm’s Archipelago

StrandVagen from Water

StrandVagen from Water

Over 30,000 islands make up Stockholm’s Archipelago.  Starting in Stockholm, extending out to the Baltic, it’s the largest archipelago in the world.  On a recent stay in Stockholm, I decided to take the 1 hour boat ride to it’s capital of Vaxholm.  Our time was pressed so we didn’t get off of the boat, we just made the round trip ride.  Still, this was a good way for us to have a little bit of down time and take in some of natures magnificence.  Nature really is the greatest artist.  Next time I’m in Stockholm, I hope to spend a few days island hopping.
