Historic Boat Trip Stockholm-Sigtuna
This summer you have the splendid opportunity of taking a lovely boat trip from Stockholm to Sweden’s oldest town, Sigtuna – continuing to Skokloster Castle. Follow the old Viking waterways. Discover charming and picturesque Sigtuna – wherein you stand to find plenty of cafés, shopping, runic stones as well as further remnants of its 1000-year-old history. In addition to being the biggest private palace ever built in Sweden, Skokloster Castle was recently appointed by a Swedish magazine as also being the nations most beautiful. The castle was built in the 17th century, Sweden’s Age of Greatness. Preserved and decorated interiors, the uncompleted yet majestic ball room and an exciting armory make the castle a popular destination.
”It’s wonderful to welcome back the boats, the waterway from Sigtuna to Skokloster is very much sought after,” exclaims Camilla Zedendahl, head of Sigtuna Tourism.
The boats to Sigtuna and Skokloster depart from Stadshuskajen in Stockholm, July 3rd to August 22nd, every Wednesday through Sunday.
