See the highlights of Stockholm on this leisurely tour that brings you the best of the capital and its surrounding countryside. Start your day with a visit to the island of Gamla Stan, the Medieval old town. Marvel at gems like the Royal Palace, Stortorget, the hub of the old town, and the Stock Exchange, now home to the Swedish Academy. Passing through the city centre, carry on to the island of Djurgarden to the Vasa Museum. Take a look at the battleship Vasa – it’s an authentic piece of living history. Then it’s time to leave the city behind and head into the countryside to the idyllic little town of Sigtuna. Here, you’ll tuck into a tasty Swedish lunch in a local restaurant before setting off on a tour of the town’s landmarks.
The drive to Sigtuna takes about 1 hour. Whilst in Sigtuna, and in the Old Town of Stockholm, there are walking tours down cobbled streets. Therefore we don’t recommend this tour for anyone with walking difficulties.
- SUITABILITY Moderate physical activity.
