Why Travelers Choose This Tour
This small-group food tour of central Stockholm makes its final stop in Gamla Stan for a fika break.
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.

This tour was just fantastic! A great variety of food stops along the way while walking through Stockholm and learning the history. Our English speaking tour guide Soma was second to none. She was knowledgeable and a food enthusiast! My only regret is that I didn't purchase more of the salty licorice at the licorice shop. It is fantastic. Don't hesitate to book this tour for a great way to learn about Stockholm and sample some fantastic food.
Definitely the highlight of my time in Stockholm! There were only 5 of us, not including the guide. This made it a more personal experience. The food was absolutely amazing, and we got to see lovely sights along the way! The guide was very knowledgable and kind. I would take this tour again if I ever go back! High recommend!
The original Õstermalms Saluhall is still under renovation as of Feb. 20, 2018, so the food hall is in a temporary modern building next door. The display of food for sale was amazing! Samples provided there were good and included a small serving of beer. The Modern version of Swedish Meatballs elsewhere turned out to be made with Turkey - not what I expected, although at least the Turkey was from Sweden. The fish soup at one stop was excellent! Other foods sampled could be improved.
Our guide was knowledgeable, and was very pleasant and helpful. She also pointed out historical points of interest as we walked by.
Another great tour of stockholm and its food . Dunja was our guide again and this made the tour all the more enjoyable . she explain each of the foods we were eating and some had legends behind them which made the food even more interesting. each spot we stopped at had the food ready to taste and it was very good. we tasted food we would not get in our country so it was a great food tour. A point for people who are fussy eaters or have a intolerance should make this very clear at booking as you can see the people providing the food are small business owners so wasting anything they provide would be unkind. we love every bit of the food and was lovely and full by the time we finished. thank you again to Dunja for a great day.
