Sjovagen ferries

As we are staying about 20 minutes walk from Saltsjöqvarn, I was wondering if we can take Sjovagen ferries sightseeing every day to Nybroplan and to Allmänna Gränd (Djurgarden). The website says “Nybroplan-Allmänna Gränd (limited traffic)” does this mean the ferries are not frequent? We will be in Stockholm in July.

Yes, it seems that you can take the ferry to Nybroplan, ferries departures from Saltsjöqvarn every ~35 minutes.

Starting 6.52 weekdays and 10.34 weekends.

The limitations for Allmäna Gränd seems to be that all departures do not dock there. From Saltsjöqvarn most of the departures will only let passengers disembark at Allmäna Gränd.

There is a time table on line, only in Swedish though but I think you'll get the hang of it:

www.sjovagen.nu/getfile.ashx…

The "a" in the table means only disembarkation.

SL Cards and the Stockholm Card are valid on these ferries.

2. Re: Sjovagen ferries

This is a rather new service. And as it´s got a bit complicated schedule.

Only in Swedish i afraid.

www.sjovagen.nu/getfile.ashx…

But as i see it you can go from Saltsjöqvarn to both Allmänna Gränd and Nybroplan before noon.

And the opposite way in the afternoon/evening.

On the jettys you will find a signaling device, semaphore style. When you wait for the boat to arrive the signal is to be in the vertical (visible) position. Othervise the boat wont pick you up!

When the boat docks put the signal back in horisontal mode.

A lot of words for a simple but important thing!

This goes for all the archipelago traffic!

thanksyou both very much, this sounds great, especially the signalling. We really should have those in Sydney as ferries often spend a long time docking at a jetty and then no-one gets on or off.

Now that we are here I don't know how to get to the Sjovagen ferries. It seems the easiest way to get around

is to take bus number 53 into the city. But the bus doesn't seem to go to the ferry..what about the train stopping at Henriksdal hwever From there you need to walk up the hill which is a bit daunting.. Any advice?!

One needs to walk through the Saltsjoqvarns tunnelgata.from near Henriksdals. Which is quite a piece of engineering to get to Saltsjoqvarns kaj where the ferry leaves from.. Beautiful spot.
