Brunch Cruise

This past Friday I was invited by the sightseeing company Strömma (thanks Marika) to try their weekend brunch cruise aboard the s/s Stockholm. There was a raging winter storm outside and public transportation was at a standstill throughout the city... but that didn't matter as the s/s Stockholm was built as an ice breaker from the beginning. So it was a cozy trip through a winter landscape in the Stockholm archipelago! Strömma offers this brunch cruise every Saturday and Sunday with the boat leaving the city at noon. The trip takes you through the inner archipelago and has you back in the city at 3pm. The cost (for brunch & boat trip) is 430 SEK and 215 SEK for children between 6 and 11 years old. The brunch consists of a Swedish buffet (smörgåsbord) with lots of local delicacies like mustard herring, janssons frestelse and biff lindström. The dessert table was fantastic! This is a great way to try some Swedish cuisine and see Stockholm and the landscape from the water (the best view in my opinion).
You can follow along on the boat ride without eating brunch. This is called the Archipelago Tour w/ Guide in their brochure and costs 220 SEK with lighter snacks available for purchase.
