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.

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.

It was a rainy December day, but we enjoyed the leisurely pace and friendly guide on the Stockholm food tour. Portions were often quite generous. with a nice mix of dried meats, cheese, fish stew, meatballs, open faced sandwiches, candies, beer, wine and fika. The tour took us through several neighborhoods of the city. I only wish we had been given a list of the establishments we visited so that I could have passed that on to our Stockholm friends so they could try some of the places.

Had an amazing experience! Our guide was wonderful and walked us all around Stockholm, taking us to places we would never have thought to stop in. Our tour was just two of us and one other couple and was both intimate and warm, and was the highlight of my trip to Stockholm. I highly recommend this tour!

My husband and I went on this amazing food tour of Stockholm. Our guide was terrific, very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. The tour took in a indoor market where you get to taste cheeses and meats, all local produce washed down with beer. The stall holders were friendly too. We then went on to lunch in another indoor market, Again local food which was great, skagen, fried herring and soup, washed down this time with a glass of wine. We then went upstairs and tried liquorice, sweet and salty that was interesting great wee shop though if you like liquorice which I do. you then continue through the streets of Stockholm to an amazing chocolate shop, where you get to taste chocolates and the hot chocolate, it was scrumptious, and if that wasn't enough we went to a candy store in the the old town. We fortune enough to see the proprietor making candy, and of course got to taste. Then to finish we had 'Fika', Swedes love doing this, it's coffee and usually a cake, we had pastries. I would recommend taking along an appetite and a backpack, we couldn't help but purchase some of the goodies. Highly recommend especially if you only have the weekend like us.

Great tour just don't eat much breakfast before or you will struggle to enjoy all the delicacies on offer. Good way to get a feel for the city and its life. Plenty of walking so you get to pass places to revisit afterwards.

This tour was incredible! Somehow, I managed to be the only one to book the tour on the day I went and had my very own private food tour! While I always enjoy meeting people, this was actually really special as it was my last day in Stockholm. Tessie was a wonderful tour guide and I really learned so much about various historical aspects of Sweden and Stockholm, as well as some rich insight regarding the different foods I was trying. She was very personable and had so many wonderful stories and details to share. The tour had a great mix of savory and sweet, with portions being just right and with enough walking to help you feel like you weren't JUST eating. This was an excellent way to explore the city and get to know various areas while also enjoying some of the best treats and specialties of the region. I would highly recommend this tour as a great way to learn about the culture, the city, and to eat excellent food :

The food tour was very enjoyable and our tour guide was great. In addition to having the opportunity to try many different types of foods, the guide was very knowledgeable and provided a lot of local color and good information. It was a fun way to spend the day and we got to sample things we likely would not have found on our own.
