Yearly picnic in the archipelago! (Grinda!)

  • Aug 18, 2012 · 10:00 AM

Nicolas started us on a fun yearly summer tradition of a trip to Grinda for a picnic in the archipelago. It’s that time again ☺ Save the date!


What to bring:
- Food & drinks for yourself
- 1-time BBQ grills if you want to BBQ
- Picnic blankets
- Bathing suits for the swimmers
- a beach ball or any games to enjoy the day
- SUN!


We will be on the 10am ferry. Please give yourself enough time to get a spot on the ferry. For your help, I've listed some of the other Waxholmsbolagets Boat's ferry times to Grinda below (there are also other boat companies that go to Grinda). The ferry will take you to the Södra Grinda stop - from there we will walk to the Norra Grinda rocks / beach location that we went to last year.

Please contact Amy Heshmati at[masked] with any questions - she will lead the tour this year!

Time: 10:00am*
Departure from Strömkajen with Waxholmsbolagets Boat
Going to Grinda
Cost ~90sk each way

(Other Waxholmsbolagets Boat times to Grinda for Sat, Aug 18: 8:00, 9:30, 10:00*, 11:30, 12:00)

**Let's hope for sun on Saturday, August 18. Sunday, August 19, will be our rain day if needed... Use your judgment in the morning on the weather. I'll also post something here if we get rained out.

    Was the location decided? "Needs a location Coming soon!"

    August 15, 2012

    • Amy

      Yes, a location has been decided - if you came to the previous last two trips it will be in the same vicinity - in north Grinda. The 10am boat docks at south Grinda and we will walk across the island to the north side. It is less busy there and we can usually have the whole area to ourselves. Of course people are welcome to go anywhere in the island.

    Hi, is the event family friendly? Thanks

    August 14, 2012

    • Amy

      Yes, this is a family friendly event. In past years children have joined in the fun! Picnickers often bring drinks with them, but it's not a raucous time.
