Sailing holiday in Stockholm Archipelago

From Höga Kusten we took the train down to Stockholm and enjoyed the company of old friends.
Then we boarded our rented sailing boat in Rindö (close to Vaxholm) and headed out to see for a wonderful week of sailing.
Our route was Rindö-Grinda-Finnhamn-Möja-Ostholmen-Lilla Nassa-Finnhamn-Idskären-Edö (visitng Björn!)-Grinda-Vaxholm-Rindö.

Högakusten II

Högbonden was a lovely experience. But we still wanted to see more of Höga Kusten, so headed North towards the island of Trysunda. On the way we had a fika on top of Skuleberget, with stunning views.

Holiday on Högbonden at Höga Kusten

After the wedding in Sundsvall we rented a car and headed for the island Högbonden within the Unesco world heritage site Höga Kusten. Here we stayed in a romantic hostel in the old lighthouse.
