Scandinavia Sailing Vacations

Scandinavia wiew  cableway

Receive a friendly welcome from the Scandinavians as you sail the shores, discovering the rocky cliffs, sandy beaches and wooded islands.

From our base in Saltsjöbaden in Sweden, you can cruise the 14 beautiful islands of Stockholm, head out to the serene Stockholm archipelago and relax on the sandy shores of Erstaviksbadet.

On a Scandinavian sailing vacation, you’ll have the chance to see some of the most breathtaking scenery in the world, dine on fresh seafood and shop for the contemporary designs for which Scandinavia is renowned.

Make sure you try the traditional tipple, Aquavit, during your Scandinavian yacht charter. Distilled from grain and potatoes and flavored with herbs, you can say cheers or “skål!” to your family and friends before tucking into traditional Nordic cuisine.

When you choose a Scandinavian yacht charter, you’re in for the vacation of a lifetime. With picture-perfect sailing grounds, you’ll get to experience a combination of stunning scenery and cultural cities.

Cruise a vast archipelago with beautiful islands and secluded coves.

Top things to do in Scandinavia

Visit Stockholm’s Gamla Stan

Sweden’s capital is spread across 14 islands and Gamla Stan (Swedish for ‘Old Town’) is one of the prettiest. Wander around charming cobblestoned streets, enjoy a cinnamon bun at one of the many cafes and visit the Royal Palace, the official residence of Sweden’s monarchy.

Island hop Stockholm’s archipelago

The second largest archipelago in the Baltic Sea is made up of almost 30,000 islets, islands and rocks, each with their own character and home to many Swedes’ summer houses. We recommend paying a visit to Ljusterö for its water sport activities and the nature reserve on Kålgård island.

Celebrate Midsummer Scandinavian style

If you’re visiting Scandinavia in June, then you’re in for a treat. In Sweden especially, the longest day of the year is celebrated nationally. If you’re in Stockholm, head over to Skansen, where you can dance around a maypole, make flower crowns and sing traditional Swedish songs.

Admire Uppsala’s impressive gothic cathedral

Thirty minutes north of Stockholm lies the university city of Sweden. Perfect for a day trip while on your Scandinavian yacht charter, visit the iconic cathedral, stroll around the botanical gardens and shop on Svartbäcksgatan, which leads to Uppsala’s main square, Stora Torget.

Cross the Öresund Bridge

With so many things to do in Scandinavia, it makes sense to extend your vacation and see what the other countries have to offer. The Öresund (Øresund in Danish) is the bridge that connects Malmö in Sweden to Denmark’s capital. The bridge is around 10 miles long and has beautiful views of the Baltic Sea.

Relive your childhood at Tivoli Gardens

Located in central Copenhagen, Tivoli is the second oldest amusement park in the world. There are numerous rides, restaurants and shops to visit and a fireworks display in the summer. While you’re in Copenhagen, we’d recommend heading to Lagkagehuset, for the best pastries you’ll ever taste, and paying a visit to Nyhavn to see the backdrop of beautiful colored buildings. For the record, you can give the Little Mermaid statue a miss – there are so many better things to do in Scandinavia.

Pay a visit to Sweden’s second biggest city

Stockholm is beautiful, but Gothenburg has a much more Swedish feel to it. The Haga district has many cool restaurants and bars and Slottsskogen is the perfect place to enjoy a stroll.

When is the best time to visit Scandinavia?

Scandinavian coloured city

The best time to visit Scandinavia is between June and August, with long summer days. In northern Scandinavia, you’ll also get to experience the midnight sun. Temperatures reach between 68 and 73°F.

Bear in mind when you’re sailing around Scandinavia that, even in the height of summer, it can get cold at night, with temperatures dipping to 50°F. So make sure you bring a jacket.

September marks the start of winter and the snow can come quickly, so be prepared.

Sailing trips in Scandinavia to suit your budget

If you charter a yacht in Scandinavia in the low season, then flights are often cheaper and your choice of seat availability is wider.

However, if you sail in the high season, you will enjoy much better weather, but also more crowds as the Swedish population loves to sail.

What are the sailing conditions in Scandinavia?

The sailing conditions in Scandinavia include winds from the south from spring to autumn with calm waters, making it the ideal time for a Scandinavian yacht charter. During autumn and winter, the wind moves to the west and can be strong.

What are the mooring fees in Scandinavia?

Scandinavian mooring fees will vary depending on whether you are using marinas, where you sail and the time of year you charter.

Excellent. Very professional and great service!


Antigua Bareboat

Just what we needed coming out of a year of lockdown, to see new places and connect with nature. Highly recommended for your next sailing adventure!


St. Martin Bareboat

Excellent cruise and very good stay. Skipper attentive, very pleasant and very professional.


Guadeloupe Skippered

Just returned from another fantastic sailing week at your base in Pula and I would like to thank everyone involved for making this possible on such short notice and without any problems.


Croatia Bareboat

The marina itself is a perfect starting point with great facilities! The Lagoon 42 was in good condition and the skipper was amazing and very knowledgeable of the area.”


Spain Skippered

What an AMAZING experience. We’ve just returned from a week long skippered charter from Corfu, sailing around the beautiful islands of the Ionian. Paxos, Antipaxos and Corfu Old Town were beautiful and the secluded bays we had the pleasure of visiting thanks to our local skipper, Nicholas, were simply overwhelming. Fly and flops are no longer for us – we’ll be chartering with DYC for the foreseeable future.


Greece Skippered

Our group of 10 had an AMAZING time in French Polynesia from May 21-28, 2022! The food was amazing, our captain and chef, husband and wife: Henry and Mehee (sp), were incredible and the whole experience on board was a dream! We can’t wait to book another trip through DYC


Tahiti Crewed Premium

DYC provided a great sailing experience for my extended family on 2 monos out of Scrub Island. The boats were in great shape and preformed perfectly and the staff were friendly and helpful. Having worked for a number of charter companies over the years DYC is one of the best.


British Virgin Islands Bareboat

Baja is my favorite place now. There was something for everyone: sailed under northerlies with mostly calm evenings, snorkeled, fished, bummed it on the sandy beaches, enchanted by pelicans feeding, greeted by the barking sea lions and explored the Ispiritu Santo island geology. DYC La Paz base provided competent professional support with a well provisioned and maintained boat. We were nourished well by an onboard cook arranged with DYC freeing us all for more play. A vacation and an adventure connected with nature.


Mexico Crewed Premium

All staff were fantastic and made our trip very memorable. Incredibly friendly and welcoming, the food was amazing. The service throughout the trip was always first class!


Thailand Cabin

Absolutely recommended. Perfect service and set up. Will charter again and will recommend Dream Yacht Charter anytime.

I just returned from 3 weeks of amazing sailing with my family on one of your catamarans in Sardinia. I would like to express my thanks to our skipper Simone and Daniela, our hostess.


Sardinia Bareboat

For a first cruise as a skipper, the Mediterranean is great. The Dream Yacht Charter service is too!


France Bareboat

We had an incredible trip and actually got engaged on the first night of our sail! We will certainly be back one day. Thank you for getting us ready for our charter. We were definitely beginners but he gave us a very thorough but very easy to follow training and it gave us a lot of confidence.



The on board experience was way beyond our expectations. Isabelle provided exceptional three course meals. We could not believe her creativity and delicious meals. Thomas was an excellent skipper. He was always on the lookout for our needs. Thanks guys!” Spira, New Caledonia bareboat with crew charter
