Jump aboard the historic steamboat S/S Mariefred, the famous coal-fired steamer will take you on a historic voyage to the picturesque lakeside town of Mariefred, a small, charming town on the south shore of Lake Mälaren. Particularly enjoyable in the summer, you can sit back, relax, and take in the beautiful scenic views across the lake.

The cruise provides a live guided tour, so you can take in the views whilst listening to historical facts and stories about the sights as you gently meander past them.  You'll also have the option to visit the famous 16th-century Gripsholm Castle. Once you reach your destination you're then free to enjoy the charming town centre of Mariefred where you can browse the quaint streets full of craft shops and photogenic wooden houses.
