    Description

    The capital of Sweden and known to locals as ‘beauty on water’, Stockholm is rich in cultural assets with a beautifully preserved historic centre, a Royal Palace, UNESCO World Heritage sites, iconic gabled buildings and a wealth of world class museums. The city stretches across fourteen islands, where Lake Mälaren flows into the Baltic Sea. Showcasing everything from glittering Viking treasures and an ill-fated royal warship, to ABBA memorabilia, the city’s museums convey the history and culture of a nation. It is a stimulating, inspiring mix, where the past, present and future constantly merge.


    Just a few minutes from the city by boat, the geographical wonder of the Stockholm archipelago begins. Estimated at around 30,000 islands, each with their own character, the archipelago fans out some 80 km into the Baltic. Rugged nature blends with wooded islands, sandy beaches and rocky cliffs, making it easy to see why so many make this their home in some stunning waterside properties.


    This holiday explores Stockholm’s highlights, taking in the history, culture and geography of this beautiful waterside city. Travel by boat, coach and on foot to see the city at its best, enjoying traditional food, with fellow travellers, and a relaxed pace along the way.
