I am always impressed with the sheer beauty of this area. We have visited it and sailed it a few times. It's simply pristine raw Scandinavium beauty.

On a sunny day we recommend the visit of the Southern archipelago by means of public transportation. With tram 11 you go to the terminus Saltholmen were you take boat 281 to Vrångo. The boat goes to the islands Köpstadsö, Styrsö Bratten, Styrsö Skåret, Donsö...More

So beautiful!! We hopped on the local ferry and stopped at a couple of the islands. What a fantastic place! The weather was fantastic so everyone was outside. So worth the trip. Makes me want to summer there someday!! Looks like a lovely lifestyle.

People say the southern archipelago is a must-see, and they are right. You can't stay in the city all the time. The ferry cruise is scenic, refreshing and fun. Seeing the intermediate stops en route to Branno was interesting, and Branno itself is fairly quiet,...More

I visited Vrångö and the island is very beautiful. There is a nice cafe near the ferry and a beautiful sand beach. Also nice walking routes. Perfect for a one day trip on a nice sunny day. Great views and beautiful houses.

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
