Stockholm Archipelago contains a staggering 30,000 islands and islets approximately and is one of the most picturesque places I explored within the Baltic Sea. The colourful buildings in the main islands of the city looked beautiful against the different shades of blue in the calm sea.
There are islands of all shapes and sizes within the archipelago. Some have one or two houses on them and some have entire little villages contained on them.
A very large amount of the houses that are on the islands far away from the centre of Stockholm are holiday homes owned by Stockholmers.
I definitely wouldn’t mind having a summer holiday home on one of these little islands. Preferably a private island with just my little house on it, but hey I’m not that fussy!
There are many different companies which offer hop-on hop-off cruises around the archipelago, which is a great way to get around. It’s also absolutely beautiful in the summer months, so what better way to explore!
Would you be brave enough to live isolated on this tiny little island? I’d like to give it a try. Imagine having a boat to get around everywhere instead of a car? That would be pretty cool. I’m not sure how much fun it would be in the harsh winter months though!
