Planning Your Visit

  • When to go?

    Swedish winters can be pretty bleak so it's worth avoiding them if you're not a fan of short days and snow! Temperatures hit their balmy highs between June and August, though they bring with them higher attraction ticket and hotel prices. If you're on a budget and don't mind mild weather, then the blooming spring makes May the best time to visit for sightseeing!

  • How many days?

    Most of Stockholm's attractions are located within a small area, and could be covered within 3 days. That said, many of the bigger museums are extensive and eclectic enough to warrant a full day, as does Drottningholm Palace, so you could easily fill a week. Also note that many of the museums are closed on Mondays.

Great trip through the Stockholm archipelago with a guide in English and Swedish. Great explanations, beautiful route, nice boat with seats inside and outside (optionally with blankets and protection from rain). Very great tour !!!

Very nice trip. The stop is very easy to find. The transition from water to land and vice versa was very exciting but also safe. The tour guide was really great, explained a lot in English and Swedish.

What an interactive way to discover the old city (Gamla Stan)! The stories were very interesting and fascinating, and our guide Callum was truly amazing and a very kind and funny person!

Great landscape. Friendly, experienced guide with a lot of background on the area.

Great ship! Very interesting piece of the Swedish history.
