Gulf Vaxholm
-Swedens oldest still open gas station

For many, the gas station in the Vaxholm strait is an obvious sight, which’s not strange, it has been here for over a century. It was founded in 1922 by the sea captain Ossian Wirström. Since then much have changed, and the boats are bigger and more numerous.

Today we are widely known for our expertise in handling a large number of boats during the summer and for our service.

The oldest picture of the station dates 1922.
