Exploring the Archipelago
Our voyages are as much about the journey as the destinations. We sail through a region rich in history and natural beauty, from Norrtälje/Arholma in the north to Nyköping in the south. Each stop, whether a cultural site or a natural harbour, offers a unique glimpse into the archipelago’s soul.
A week with us might include stops at marinas for fresh supplies, swims in the brackish waters of the sea, and visits to places steeped in history and culture. From secret Cold War fortresses to serene natural harbours, every day brings something new.
On Sunbeam, every voyage is an opportunity to explore, relax, and connect with the sea and its surroundings. It’s more than just a sailing trip; it’s an experience that stays with you. So, are you ready to set sail on an adventure you’ll never forget?

The best of traditional sailing and Swedish life style
Embark on a Sunbeam voyage through the archipelago, where sailing is a dance with the winds. We tailor each day’s destination to the weather, ensuring a pleasant and practical experience. Our journey spans from Norrtälje/Arholma in the north to Nyköping in the south, offering a mix of cultural landmarks, historical sites, and natural beauty. The archipelago boasts marinas and numerous serene natural harbors, each with its unique charm.
On a typical week-long trip, we dock at marinas for essentials like water and provisions. These stops also provide a chance for showers, though many find a swim in the gentle brackish sea waters just as refreshing.
Each destination on our journey is an invitation to delve into the archipelago’s history, culture, and natural splendor.
You are going to be spending some time in the ports you embark and disembark from. These aren’t just logistical points; they’re opportunities for further enrichment. Take an extra day to discover what’s beyond the harbour. It’s not merely about filling time; it’s about making the entire journey worthwhile.

We will have a selection of low alcohol beer (2.8-3.5% vol) and guests are welcome to bring their own drinks of choice. Alcoholic beverages can only be consumed in moderation when docked, as per the skipper’s discretion. Strict sobriety is required for all involved in sailing or motoring. Smoking is restricted to specific outdoor areas.
