My words, thoughts and photos from a Swedish perspective

Steam boat

SS BLIDÖSUND building up steam

We are lucky to have three steamers in service during the summer: SS BLIDÖSUND, SS STORSKÄR and SS NORRSKÄR. BLIDÖSUND are mostly doing special tours and her evening jazz tours are very popular. She is also the only coal fired of them. The other two do their regular trades in the archipelago. I usually take a trip or two every year and enjoy both the boat trip and the archipelago.

I also learned that steamers make a different impression after dark, but trying to get a shot of them was a thing I couldn’t resist.
