Boat Life in the Archipelago

Published onsdag 27 maj 2009 kl 13.15
Stockholm archipelago

The sea-exploring passion of the Vikings still holds its spell over Swedes who rightly consider themselves a seafaring nation. Sweden has one of the highest numbers of boats per capita in the world. The archipelago with its thousands of islands is a magnet not only for the nature loving Swedes but also for an increasing number of foreign tourists. Small boating towns along the coast dormant in winter wake up in summer, buzzing with life and boat traffic.

One of such towns is also Oxelösund, about hundred km south of Stockholm, where giant steel-works are siding with the nature resort and number of small islands, an attraction for the local population as well as for the boating tourists.
