What You Can Expect

Stockholm Food Tour

Try yummy Swedish cinnamon rolls on your food tour!

Seek out your guide at Õstermalms Saluhall, the oldest food market in Stockholm, where many businesses have been passed down through multiple family generations. Admire the intricate carvings on the interior wooden walls and eaves, which have been well-preserved for centuries. 

Munch on some modern Swedish meatballs, slightly changed and much healthier than their traditional counterpart, but just as tasty. Then continue your tour with a stroll through Stureplan, an area that most tourists skip. At Kungsgatan, check out K25, an urban food court packed with Stockholm's hip young residents. Try some of the local seafood and sip a glass of white wine while you do some interesting people-watching. 

Take the chill off with a visit to Chokoladfabriken for their legendary hot chocolate, made with 65% cocoa and cardamom. Then pause at Hõtorgshallen to peruse the market stalls filled with Swedish delicacies and fresh produce. At the P&B Delikatesser, taste a dizzying array of homemade products like truffles, traditional Swedish licorice and cloudberry jam.

Hit up Husmans Deli for some artisan cheese, then visit Fagel & Vilt for cured meats like smoked reindeer and elk salami. Wash it down with some Norrlands Guld beer and chase it with some fresh fruit from Lisbeth Janson Frukt & Grunt. 

Walk the cobblestone streets of Gamla Stan, Stockholm's Old Town, and pause at a candy store before heading to your last tasting: a traditional Swedish fika. The nation's favorite mid-afternoon or evening break consists of a kanelbullar and a strong coffee. 

With a full stomach and lots of ideas about where you'll want to eat on the rest of your Swedish holiday, you'll bid farewell to your guide after this 4-hour tour.

Don't hesitate - book it ! Was a great tour arond Stockholm with a friendly and knowledgeable local guide. Started in the wonderful atmosphere of the Saluhall food market with samples of cheese and meat and even a morning beer :- from there we walked towards the old town stopping off for meatballs and at a beautiful fish restaurant if only I ate fish !!. The tour ended in a cafe in the old town with buns and coffee ...... but the stop at the chocolate shop and sweet shop were my favourite. Great way to get a basic acquaintance with the city and maybe try some foods that you might not have otherwise eaten ...... like me with a taste of pickled herring ....... :-/

The venue of the starting point is easy to locate. The guide met us promptly and there were a total of 7 tastings in total. The food tasted were nice and delicate. Do go on an empty stomach! I made the mistake of taking breakfast before going.
Highly recommended if you would like to taste good food and have a chat with the local guide!

We had a great time. The group was reserved in their enthusiasm in booking this as none had ever done a food tour and were worried that it would be too much eating and not enough touring. By the end they were all converts to the food tour. They loved the walking tour of the area that was combined with fun stories and amazing local food. It was a highlight of the trip.

This was an excellent selection of different types of local food. I think we stopped at 7 or 8 places over the course of 4 hours. It was a great value! Everywhere we went, our food was ready and the attendants were pleasant and helpful. Our tour guide, Ewi, was probably the best part. She was very knowledgable -- about the food and the culture.

in my opinion, how great a tour is often depends on the tour guide. and Margarita was amazing! besides taking us to tasting places, she gave us some history, we stopped at some interesting historic spots, which made the tour fun and exciting. the tour was full 4 hours and we had 6 tastings total! was very yummy! one person in the group had a fitbit on, so, according to it, we walked 3 miles. no one was rushed, we all had time to sit down, eat, chat and enjoy. highly recommend the tour and very happy we have done it! thank you, Margarita!

We had a terrific time on this tour - we booked it for our first morning and it really helped us get through our jet lag. The highlight of our trip was visiting the old Ostermalms Saluhall, an incredible old indoor food market. We liked getting to sample food that we wouldn't have tried otherwise, like cloudberry jam and elk salami. Our tour guide was excellent and professional.
