6 days exploring Sweden's east coast on a superyacht

6 days exploring Sweden's east coast on a superyacht

Day 1


Ystad in Sweden

The small township of Ystad is often referred to as Sweden’s most southern city and is a perfect destination to start your Swedish adventure. Founded during the 13th century the town has rich historical roots, something that can really be seen in the older parts of the city.

In Ystad, and the surrounding Österlen area you can enjoy the characteristic scenery of southern Sweden with miles of rapeseed fields and white sand beaches. While in the area you can visit the famous craftsmanship area of Kåseberga, see the historical ship barrow “the Ale Stones” or enjoy a relaxing visit to the Ystad Saltsjöbad Spa and a tasty seafood dinner at their first class restaurant.

Day 2

Ystad to Karlskrona

Approximately 81 NM

Karlskrona, Sweden

Karlskrona is situated in the eastern corner of the Blekinge archipelago. The town was originally a 16th century naval base, and is today the centre for marine history in Sweden. The southern part of the city with the old navy area is part of the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Situated just west of Karlskrona you can find the Eriksberg Nature Reserve. Eriksberg consists of more than 1,340 hectares which makes it one of Europe's largest wildlife reserves.

Among the inhabitants you will find red deer, fallow deer, wild boar, bison and mouflon, and the reserve has a summer population of about 1,700 animals. If you are interested in nature and wildlife this is not to be missed. Anchorage is available outside the reserve, depending on the size of the yacht.

Eriksberg also offers two excellent restaurants, the Bison and the Havsörnen Manor, with specialties such as red deer and different types of salmon.

Day 3

Karlskrona to Visby (via the island of Öland)

Approximately 145 NM

Visby, Sweden

The Island of Gotland is situated North East of Karlskrona, approx. 55 NM off the Swedish coast. Gotland is famous for its high coastline and the impressive limestone formations, called “Rauks”.

The island’s capital, Visby, was first founded in 1203. Visby is often called “the town of roses and ruins” because of the surrounding ruins and the old houses. The city is still surrounded by the old city wall, which used to protect the city during its days as a Hanseatic trading centre. Visby is today one of the main jet set summer resorts in Sweden. It offers a combination of first class entertainment and dining, beautiful beaches and spectacular scenery.

During the second week of July each year, the picturesque 11th century town turns into a top party destination when “Stockholm week” is in town.
