Welcome to S / S Ejdern

S / S Ejdern was built in 1880 at Gothenburg's mechanical workshop to go in coastal traffic in the Gothenburg archipelago and was launched on 14 May the same year. Between the years 1898 and 1906, Ejdern trafficked the waters around Lake Roxen to eventually end up in Södertälje.

And today she is the World's Oldest Propeller Powered Coal Fired Steamship with Original Machine still in operation .. More about the ship and the association.

During the summer, Södertälje municipality offers all children and young people (parents can come along) a number of swimming trips to Farstanäs.

We will run one or two days per week during weeks 27, 29 and 32 depending on the weather. Keep an eye on tour list.

As usual, the beach trips are very popular. We hope that the coronary restrictions will ease on 1/7. Then we will release more tickets for the tours. We also hope that there is good bathing weather around any of the scheduled days, then we will add another tour. So keep your fingers crossed.
