The island is composed of a nature reserve, the Bogesundslandet peninsula, and 70 islands– more than half of which are inhabited. The best way to get around is by boat or on foot. The island features miles of lovely walking paths, including a 10 km loop around Vaxön that winds along the shoreline. Take a boat across the strait to visit Kastellet, where you can explore a fascinating history dating back to the 16th century. If you’re looking for a fun group activity, try your luck at the popular “Prisoners of the Fortress” challenge or try to break out of a prison cell in the “Kastellet Escape Adventure”. If shopping is more of your pace, you’ll enjoy perusing Vaxholm’s wide selection of shops for clothing gifts, decor, and much more.
The harbor itself is conveniently located right in the center and serves as a natural gathering place for both boaters and non-boaters and there are a wide variety of cafes and restaurants only a few steps away.
