3 Days in Stockholm: Suggested Itineraries
By Viator, January 2015
Day 1: Welcome to Stockholm
Being built on 14 islands does things to Stockholm’s layout. Confusing things. Best to situate yourself alongside the modern city center on the main island, or in the middle of Gamla San, the tiny island housing the historic Old Town. The oldest part of Stockholm is also its most beautiful, containing cobblestone streets, pretty old houses, vaulted cellar restaurants and the impressive Royal Palace. The Stockholm in a Nutshell tour will give you a good overview of the city, but if you’ve got more time to spare and would rather do things on your own, consider a hop-on hop-off boat tour and take advantage of the city’s lovely waterways. Either way, consider picking up a Stockholm Card which saves both time and money.
Day 2: Stockholm by Land and Water
Start the morning off with a Stockholm Bridges Cruise or the Royal Canal Tour and get intimate with those pellucid waterways. Good insider tip: those waters have beckoned to all that gaze upon them for centuries, and as their a source of any Stockholmsian’s pride, they are also open to the public. That means if it calls to you, jump on in!
After your time aboard, walk the old town, with an Old Town Walkabout, and get insider knowledge of the city’s vivid history. To switch things up, consider taking in the old town sites in a horse and carriage, or delight your paranormal fascinations with a late night ghost walk.
Day 3: Around Stockholm
The Swedes were no military pushovers, as you’ll hear about in detail on a day of Viking history and sailing. See how the Vikings lived, breathed, and died on this incredible journey. Or, if nature calls to you more than the trumpets of battle, take in Sweden’s stunning wildlife on a Wildlife Safari trip from Stockholm.
