We stopped and spent thew day at Donso. If more time would have gone to other islands. Easy trip and comfortable ride. Saw that they catered to kids with books available for them to look at -- very smart!

The archipelago is beautiful, doesn't matter which island or when you go it's beautiful. Is worth a day trip to a couple of islands (suggestion: climb to a high up spot for a great spot to take pictures).

Take the passenger ferry from Saltholmen or charter a Ribboat to get there. The ferry stops on several islands.

This is a must! Nice, car- and carefree, nature, quaint villages, traditional wooden houses, beaches, stone cliffs, sheep, footpaths... Not designed for tourists, but everyday life for locals and yet one feels welcome, some hardly inhabited. My favourite island is Brännö with it's nice inn...More

easy to reach with boat from Saltholmen, 20 minutes run with tram from city. The boats run every 20-30 minutes and stop at 4-5 small islands and you can make a brake at all islands and then continuer the tour.

How long are you there for? I purchased a three day pass for absolute pennies (super cheap), which allowed me to use all trams and the ferry. If you're going to hop from island to island, plan ahead. Ferry times are... More
