What to expect

Combine the thrill of riding a rigid RIB boat with an escape from the city in this tour which will have you spending a day with the locals on their private summer cottage island.

Upon meeting your guide, you will go through a short safety briefing before you leave for a cruise in the most beautiful archipelago on the west side of the city. You will see a lot of summer cabins, boaters and wildlife on the way to your destination.

After a 45-minute cruise, you will reach a beautiful island that has been in the same family ownership for over 100 years, and you will get an authentic glimpse of the daily life in the archipelago. Your hosts will open up their private summer cottage for you and you will hear all about cottage life, fishing and World War II history.

You will also have the chance to try the sauna with its breathtaking view, and as you take a nature walk you will learn all about swimming moose and blueberries. You will then sit down on warm cliffs and enjoy the home made archipelago lunch on this relaxed day, just like the locals, with the locals.

Following this mini vacation, it is time to head back to the city. Depending on the weather and passenger preferences, you could choose to take an alternative inner route back, or you may choose a speed route on open sea instead, a true adventure to remember!
