Day Trip on the WaterWaxholmsbolaget runs ferries from Slussen to Vaxholm, and the ride usually takes about an hour each way.
Probably the most visited within Stockholm’s archipelago, Vaxholm offers these main attractions: a 16th-century fortress; a harbor lined with wooden cottages; and restaurants, cafés, and shops. Day trips from Stockholm are popular, and the island's narrow alleys are made for walking.
Vaxholm also serves as gateway to other islands within Roslagen commune such as Österåker, Norrtälje, and Östhammar.
