I am going to be in Stockholm for 3 full days. Is it worth spending 1 full day on an archipelago tour?
I've read much of what has been written on this board about the archipelago tour options. Sandhamn seems like a fan favorite and appeals to me as a destination for a full day tour. My understanding is that the two most popular options for accessing Sandhamn by boat are Waxholmsbolaget and Strömma.
If price is not a consideration, is Strömma the better option? It sounds like Strömma's boats are more upscale and comfortable.
I know that Strömma does a lunch cruise, but there's also a lot of discussion on this board about having lunch in Sandhamn. I assume that since the distance to Sandhamn is 2 hours, that if I take an early morning boat there won't be lunch and I would have lunch in Sandhamn. Is that right? I don't want to pay for lunch on the boat if I plan to eat in Sandhamn.
Finally, if you don't think I should spend 1 full day on a boat tour, what are the best options for a half day tour?
Many thanks in advance for any insight you can provide.
