Take the steamboat to the Stockholm archipelago

Stockholm

Stockholm, as a city, is over 700 years old and spreads across 14 islands as it faces proudly out to the Baltic Sea. You can get to just about all of Stockholm’s many wondrous sites on foot, which is the perfect way to see the city. You can also take a boat trip that will give you a different facet of Scandinavia’s largest and probably most beautiful city.

From the historic royalty of Drottningholm Palace to its hip shops and super cool nightlife Stockholm is a capital that glows hot with excitement. In this city by the sea urban center meets urban wilderness extending to thousands of islands and the world's largest archipelago. The walk-able city of bridges and contrasts Stockholm panders to the most discerning of globetrotters with incredible museums, historic districts, and a classy culinary scene that every Nobel Prize winner is sure to recall.

Gothenburg

Sweden's second largest city and Scandinavian's largest port Gothenburg lies on the west side, and by most counts, the best side of the country. The transformation of its old industrial areas into attractive urban environments for shopping and entertainment have helped make it a leading choice for Europeans seeking new and novel city-breaks. Gothenburg boasts a staggering selection of restaurants (great shellfish) including four that tout Michelin stars, a world-class Opera House and Concert Hall, National Orchestra, dynamic museums and districts with restored wooden buildings, shops and cafes.
