Welcome to the best Stockholm guide for tours. On foot, on the water, by bus, with or without one of the many specialist guides – there are so many great tours that you can take around the city, that it can be difficult to choose. Read on for our top recommendations.
Stockholm Hop on Hop off Bus Tour
Jump aboard for a tour of the city or hop off at your favourite attractions to create your own itinerary. There are 24 stops to choose from, including all of the most popular sites such as the Old Town and the Royal Palace, making this an easy way to get around.
Stockholm Archipelago Tours
See the city from a different perspective, with a hoponhopoff boat tour. Since Stockholm is part of an archipelago, built on 14 separate islands, the city is full of delightful canals, lakes and rivers for you to enjoy. The water is so clean that you may see people fishing for salmon or trout near the Royal Palace or the Swedish parliament. Alight at any of eight stops or stay onboard for the roundtrip. Alternatively, why not consider a fishing tour or take to the water in your own kayak?
Stockholm Walking Tours
There is no better way to get a feel for a new city than exploring its streets. If you prefer a walking tour, there are lots of knowledgeable guides to show you hidden attractions and new insights. There is something for everyone: a Ghost Tour, courtesy of the Stockholm Ghost Society, a Stieg Larsson tour for fans of Lisbeth Salander and the Millennium trilogy and, of course, an ABBA city walk.
Alternatively, why not try something different and head underground? The Stockholm metro is also known as the world’s longest art gallery and features work from 150 different artists, including mosaics, sculptures and reliefs. There are free guided walks available, also in English during the summer months. You’ll just need a valid ticket for travel.
Stockholm Food Tours
Sharing good food is an excellent way of experiencing a new culture and Food Tours offer a great way of doing just that. Consistently popular and available in a variety of durations, the tours cover traditional Swedish cuisine and modern twists. Expect to visit restaurants, bakeries, markets and specialist producers. The food with the best name is undoubtedly cloudberry jam – it even sounds delicious!
Stockholm Rooftop Tours
A fun and adventurous way of seeing the city, via a system of secure catwalks and ladders over 43 metres above the busy streets. Parkour skills are not required, but you’ll need a good head for heights! Learn about Stockholm’s history and experience stunning views at the same time.
With such a great variety of tours, we hope this Stockholm guide helps you find the one that’s right for you. Wishing you a great trip!
