Experience the unique Finnish Archipelago Sea. More than 50 000 islands and islets spread between Finland and Åland alone, creating the most enchanting cruising grounds in the Baltic and indeed the world. Add to this the Stockholm archipelago on the Swedish side, and you can spend a lifetime exploring. We offer you this experience of Baltic cruising through our crewed yacht charter.
As Finland and Sweden are quite far north, the best time to go sailing is in the summer months. We therefore offer Baltic cruising charter from June through August only. The archipelago is most crowded in July, but as you can see below, there are plenty of harbours to choose from. It is also of course possible to anchor in any suitable sheltered cove.
On the west edge of the Finnish Archipelago Sea, you find thew Åland Islands with Mariehamn, the capital of Åland.
Going west from Åland, you arrive at the Stockholm archipelago on the Swedish side. This is a quite deep, much more sheltered archiopelago than the Finnish one, and it also offers views of magnificent seaside mansions and fortresses.
Cruising to Gotland, pearl of the Baltic
While in Sweden, don’t forget to extend your Baltic cruising south to the Island of Gotland.
Visit the beautiful city of Visby, not forgetting a drive to the countryside for a view of the famous Gotland Rauks.
While cruising in the Baltic, you can enjoy the long evenings, with the sun setting close to 12 PM during summer.
And a midnight sailing is an unforgettable experience.
We offer tailored Baltic cruising to suit your needs. We can also offer ready planned itineraries offering different packages with the best of the Archipelago.
Please use the form below for enquiries. There are standard options from evening cruises to weekly charters, but please use the comments field if you require something out of the ordinary. All charters include a professional skipper and most of the time also a hostess is included. We can also take care of provisioning, so you don’t have to waste valuable vacation time on that.

We searched the web and contacted the broker of some of the more interesting yachts. It is really surprising how much time this takes. Finally, we had reached the point where we had shortlisted the most interesting ones. It turned out that more than half of them where located in the southern UK, so that …
I’ve been sailing virtually all my life, well since I was big enough to remember anyway. It has always been in the back of my mind that I want to be able to spend more time sailing than on normal vacations only. I’m a software engineer, but for more than the past decade, I’ve been …
