What To Expect

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.


Starting off in the Östermalm area, popularised by the rich and the famous, we introduce you to the traditions of Swedish food. From richly flavoured and exquisite cheeses to game meat. On top of that beer that is crowned “The Gold of The North”. You get a red-carpet like infusion into the world of Swedish delights at the high end Östermalms Market Hall. Heading towards the heart of the city we will let you indulge in a traditional Swedish lunch. Along the way we will also introduce you to the crown jewel of our proud Nordic kitchen; the meatball! You will learn what types of potatoes to serve with it, why we have specific jams for it and other fun facts. Moving on we will guide you through the beautiful Kings Garden. We will pass the the area that Vogue Magazine voted the “third coolest district in the world”. The tour will end in Old Town, an area that dates back to the 13th century and consists of medieval alleyways and architecture. Here we will treat you with some traditional candy and sweets.

Traveler Tips

The tour is 4 hours, but it goes by extremely quickly so pay attention and eat EVERYTHING.
A little pricey, yes, but so is everything in Stockholm.
The tour of the city along with the food choices was well worth it!

Unfortunately, the guide ran all the way, and left most of the group behind. She also talked to us as if we were kids. As for the tastings, there were many at the first hour, and then about 2 hours of nothing. After that, the final tastings were disappointing because we got 5 liqerish tasting, which was too much by far (half the group said they don't like liqerish!!). Also, the guide forgot the vegetarian participant until we had to remind her, after 2 tastings. I have a lot of experience with viator food tour, this was, by far, the worst.
This was a great afternoon sampling things you would never have gotten to on your own
JohnNici, Jul 2022
Valentina was our perky and enthusiastic guide as we meandered throughout Stockholm stopping here and there to sample goodies to eat. At one stop we had bear, reindeer and moose, at another we had fish stew and at another we had salted licorice (Which few people cared for,but we all tried anyway). It was lots of fun. There were nine of us in all so we got to know each other a little bit, which was also nice. Go and take the tour, you will like it.

What a great afternoon spent exploring Stockholm and all the wonderful food it has to offer! We tasted so many local foods from cheeses, meats and seafoods to licorice and Fika, so delicious!! Teresa, a Stockholm local, is a great guide who gave us great explanations of food and culture and her life living in Stockholm. Highly recommend!
Not worth the money
Kimberly_T, Jun 2022
Very average tour, there was more walking than food, and when we were actually having food, there was very little context to what we were eating. Tour guide was late, not engaging, and could have made an effort to make the tour more interesting.
Strongly recommend to add to your tours in Stockholm. One of the better food tours we have done
John_M, Sep 2022
We were not sure about this tour coming in, but 100% recommend it to anyone. Our guide was excellent (name? sorry). Good communicator, knowledgeable, handled the small group well, professional, and we learned alot about Stockholm food, culture etc. Totally enjoyable, and we would do it again
Wonderful tour!!

Our guide Elena was excellent! She was so friendly and informative! She was a pleasure to spend the morning with. The food was wonderful. We tried several things such as fish stew, shrimp toast, fried herring, licorice, fika, reindeer, moose, chocolates and more! The very best part was being with a local person who loves her city and sharing it with others. She answered questions and allowed time for photos. Such a fun day!!
Good food, great company
Farah_A, Jul 2022
An excellent way to spend the day. Although we were a large group, our tour guide, Suzie, was superb. Her energy kept us engaged and I dare say, entertained. Our tour included various restaurants and deli’s. Suzie peppered the tour with knowledge insights about the city. The amount of food was adequate (I’m not sure what the other reviewers were talking about). We sampled so many varieties to meats, fish, candies, and deserts that you leave the tour full. Lots of walking though, but we got to see many places and glean the city through the lens of a local. This tour is definitely on my top list of things to do in Stockholm.
Covered good areas
Ruby_S, Jun 2022
The tour guide was very friendly, but there's not much context around what we are eating. With all the food tours I've taken, this is the only one I had to get food after.

Such a great experience!...
Emily_B, Jun 2022
Such a great experience! We learned so much about Swedish culture and history while trying a variety of Swedish foods. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the food we were trying and the history of the areas we walked through. While it was rainy and our group was a bit large for the small spaces we were visiting, she made it work and I think we all had a good time. We ended the day with fika in a cute cafe lit by candle light where we got to get to know each other a little better.
Well worth it!
Jane_E, Sep 2022
Really great food tour! Very enjoyable! Fun group ! Yea Food was fabulous! Saw a large part of the city during the tour.
Nothing Special
Zach_M, Aug 2022
Overall the experience was fine. Food was pretty good and there was a nice variety to try. My biggest issue was that it wasn’t special in anyway. Food tours are often my favorite parts of trips, but this one just felt bland and dull.
HEATHER_B, Sep 2022
The food was adventure, SWEDES have their own cuisine, a lot of fish and cheese.Licorice was unique. Meats that we tried were good forgive me Santa. It was fun and entertaining, Matt was great!
Great food tour!
Gerald_S, Aug 2022

Amazing, best way to get to know a new city!
Bob_N, Jul 2022
Suzie our tour guide was spectacular. What a great way to get to know the city. Try some amazing food and getting some exercise and you experience some of the best of the city!
Swedish foods are amazing!
Bruce_K, Sep 2022
My friend and I were on the tour with a Canadian couple and with our tour guide, the five of us stopped at six or seven different spots over the course of the next three or so hours. Cheeses and tunnbröd (Swedish flat bread) to start at one stall in the food court, sliced moose and bear jerky with beer at another, literally the best Swedish meatballs I have ever had in my life at another before we headed to another food hall where we had wine and fish soup from one restaurant, licorice tasting at another food kiosk. At the end, we headed to one of the most fabulous bakeries for our final tasting, fika with coffee. There was a good amount of walking but it was at a slow pace and we got to see Stockholm sites along the way. Tips: - There's going to be a lot of food. Plan ahead with a very light meal earlier in the day. - Try everything. You're on a food tour in Stockholm. The whole idea is to eat things you can't get back home. Have an open mind to new foods! - Wear comfortable shoes, dress in layers and bring an umbrella.
The hidden gastronomy of Stockholm
Kenneth_T, Jul 2022
We were introduced to food courts that we would never have found on our own and the tastes of Stockholm that are undoubtedly unique to the city. It was a gastronomic delight!

Pierce_B, Aug 2022
We had an amazing time. The walking tour was well thought out. The food hall was awesome and the meatballs were to die for. Sleep highlight was the fish stop.
Beautiful city good food.
