Dive into the narrow alleys of the Old Town, the place where Stockholm emerged around 1000 years ago. On this tour you will see the most picturesque places Stockholm has to offer, learn about why Stockholm became the country’s capital, the bloody history of the Stockholm Bloodbath and the lynching of Marshal Axel von Fersen – Marie Antoinette’s lover.

Bohemian Södermalm

Södermalm used to be a working-class neighborhood after migration to the city took off during the industrial era. Nowadays it is the most densely populated, and is characterized by its bohemian image. On this tour, you will learn about the history of workers in Sweden, see beautiful 18th century houses and enjoy the most magnificent views in the city.

Alternative Högdalen

Welcome to my neighbourhood! Located just 20 minutes from the central station, Högdalen offers a different kind of Stockholm experience. Join us to see the anarchist culture house Cyklopen, the largest skateboard park in the Nordic region and the coolest outdoor graffiti gallery in Northern Europe, Snösätra. For those who don’t mind some physical activity, there is also the opportunity to climb the highest peak in Stockholm – Högdalstoppen no 2 at 102 m.

Any museum!

As a qualified Stockholm guide, I can guide in almost every museum in Stockholm. The most popular destinations are the Vasa Museum, City Hall and the Royal Palace. But why not take a day trip to Drottningsholm Palace, or perhaps the Nordic or Viking Museum? There are as many as 90 museums to choose from. Feel free to get in touch if you want suggestions for places to visit.

Enjoy nature with the Freedom to Roam

What’s great about Stockholm is that you can enjoy nature during the day and a vibrant nightlife after dark. There are several forest areas very close to the city center, accessible by public transport, bicycle or taxi. Another popular activity is to take a boat trip out into the archipelago – the Stockholm archipelago is the largest in the world with around 30,000 islands!

Nature is important to us Swedes, which is why we are very proud of the freedom to roam. It gives a person the right to access, walk, cycle, and camp on any land—with the exception of private gardens.

Let us take you on a customized day trip to experience the Swedish nature!
