Full description
Drive just outside of Stockholm and visit castle Drottningholm. This elegant royal palace was built in the 16th century for the Swedish royal family and became the regular summer residence of the Swedish royal court throughout the 18th century. Next, stop for lunch in Sigtuna, Sweden’s oldest town. Take a walk through its historic streets. Visit the Venngarn castle, a 13th-century palace most famously owned by the Swedish nobleman Gabriel De La Gardie. Learn about De La Gardie’s fascinating life story from your knowledgable guide. Once one of the richest men in all of Sweden, De La Gardie suffered a tragic reversal of fortunes and ended his life in destitution. Explore the Skokloster Palace, an impressive baroque palace which stands as a monument to the former Swedish Empire. Walk its scenic grounds and see its stately interiors. The palace also contains a wonderful collection of paintings, furniture, textiles, tableware, old books and historical weapons. When the Skokloster is closed during October through May, a different castle will be visited instead.

Exceptional tour from Gabriel

We loved the tour Gabriel provided. Excellent driver, knows Swedish history and taught us a great deal. Very pleasant and professional. We never felt hurried and enjoyed the tour very much.
