The Stockholm archipelago is a magical world of more than 30,000 islands! Some are accessible by boat when the snow melts. The Waxholmsbolaget company offers a 5-day pass to travel between the islands for 30 euros. Moja is one of the largest, measuring about 5 km, and offers many possibilities for walking and cycling. The beaches are quite hard to access, and swimming here isn't really a great ideal.
