Excursions with private guide in Stockholm
Situated on the islands where Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea, the Swedish capital warmly welcomes its guests. Many tours in Stockholm in English, whether it's hiking along the forest trails, cycling to the lake or ferrying to one of the islands, take place in the open air.
The city centre is quite compact, which allows the guides to include a lot in the sightseeing tour: from the medieval streets of Gamla Stan to the village expanses of Södermalm. For safety and comfort, you should only make sure that your guide speaks English.
In order to get to know the Swedish capital in detail, Excurzilla recommends the following:
- have fun at the Trädgården open-air club with dance floor, ping-pong and a mosaic of bars.;
- relax in the Hellasgården recreational area, located in the Nacka Nature Reserve, where you can enjoy a sauna, swim in the lake and have a barbecue;
- walk along Hornstulls Strand promenade leading to the marina intended for swimming, miniature golf course, floating Loopen bar;
- to visit the Fotografiska photo gallery, amazing with its panoramic expositions;
- go on a tour of Jurgorden's museums, the most popular of which are the Vasa (based in a giant 17th century ship) and ABBA (dedicated to the famous Swedish pop band);
- enjoy the romantic atmosphere of Långholmen with its sandy beach, hotel, restaurant and museum housed in the former prison building;
- listen to jazz at the Fasching Music Center, which often hosts exhibitions of European artists;
- create a light installation in the windows of the Telefonplan tower using the Color by Numbers application;
- explore modern art in Moderna Museet (unlike many galleries in the capital that set high ticket prices, this museum offers free entrance to major exhibitions).
Finally, take an underground excursion down the Stockholm underground, known as the world's longest art gallery. Most stations will surprise you with their resemblance to rock caves, animated by rainbow inscriptions and futuristic patterns.
