Cruise from Stockholm - a port city with a difference

City Tours

Stockholm offers an array of city tours guaranteed to meet the interests of just about any traveler eager to soak up some local culture and history.

Boat Sightseeing

Take the boat to the Stockholm archipelago

Henrik Trygg/Stockholm Visitors Board

Considering that Stockholm stretches across so much water, seeing Stockholm from the water is an enjoyable must and there are a variety of boat tours available. The Under the Bridges of Stockholm, Royal Canal, Historical Canal, and the early Good Morning Stockholm tours concentrate on central Stockholm and take from 50 minutes to 2.5 hours.

ABBA City Walk

Stockholm City Museum is proud to present the ABBA City Walk, a walk through the city where ABBA lived and worked. ABBA fan visitors will love this walking tour of ABBA land and 1970s Stockholm.

Hop-On, Hop-Off Tour

View over Riddarholmen, Stockholm

Probably the best way to create a custom itinerary is on the Stockholm City Hop-On, Hop-Off Tour aboard an open-top double-decker bus that allows visitors to see the sights of Stockholm at their own pace.

The Millennium Tour

Bellmansgatan in Stockholm, Mikael Blomkvists home

Erik-G-Svensson/Stockholm Visitors Board

There’s probably no book series that has captured the imagination of adult readers like author Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy (or The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series)—which have become bestsellers around the world. The Millenium Tour lets you follow along in Blomkvist and Salander’s footsteps while getting additional background information about the characters and the author.

Rooftop Hiking

Rooftop hiking in Stockholm

Yanan Li/Stockholm Visitors Board

For a truly unique tour of Stockholm, try rooftop hiking, where everybody gets a bird’s-eye view of Stockholm from the rooftops of the city. The guided tour is a unique combination of climbing and sightseeing, but definitely for people who are not afraid of heights.
