Nestled between the Baltic Sea and Lake Mälaren, Stockholm is a city that toes the line between tradition and modernity. It embodies both the cosy Scandinavian way of life and a dynamism that’s reflected in its design and architecture. This four-day trip is an opportunity for you to experience both sides of Stockholm, from historic buildings and colourful old squares to trendy shops and New Nordic delicacies. For your first evening, we’ll arrange a table at Fasching, one of the city’s most iconic jazz clubs. The next morning, a private local guide will come up with an itinerary that incorporates both their expert knowledge and your desires, so you can spend your time visiting museums, monuments or anything else that takes your fancy.
After a day of exploring, you’ll sit down to a meal of New Nordic cuisine at one of the city’s many excellent restaurants. Your third day is all about enjoying Stockholm at your leisure, whether that means sipping a coffee in historic Gamla Stan, taking a boat trip into the archipelago or doing some karaoke at the ABBA museum. You’ll also have time for some last-minute sightseeing on your final day before returning to the UK.

Route

Everything is 100% tailored to you
DAY 1

FLIGHT TO STOCKHOLM

This afternoon, you’ll board your two-and-a-half-hour flight to the Swedish capital. When you arrive, head straight to your accommodation in the city centre, which is just a short walk from some of the city’s most impressive buildings and monuments. You’ll have some time to relax and refresh at your hotel before heading out for your first evening in Stockholm. Tonight, you have a table booked at Fasching, a renowned jazz club that’s been an iconic venue since the 1970s.

DAY 2

TAILOR-MADE TOUR OF STOCKHOLM

Today, you’ll explore Stockholm in the company of a private local guide. Because they know the city like the back of their hand, they can come up with a tailor-made itinerary that’s built around your wishes and desires, whether that involves visiting the Swedish History Museum or strolling through the colourful old town, or both. Wander through charming neighbourhoods, visit beautiful green spaces, and take advantage of your guide’s knowledge by getting some gourmet tips for the rest of your trip. Speaking of food, this evening is an opportunity to experience Stockholm through your tastebuds. We’ll reserve you a table at an excellent restaurant that showcases Nordic flavours and the forward-thinking cuisine that’s given Sweden it's foodie reputation.

DAY 3

EXPLORE STOCKHOLM

You’ll have the whole day today to explore Stockholm at your leisure, and there’s a lot to see. If you didn’t visit the beautiful Royal Palace (Kunglinga Slottet) during your private tour, now is your chance. The changing of the guard takes place here every day between the end of April and August. Nearby, the German Church – whose spire marks the highest point in Gamla Stan (the old town) – is also worth a visit. If it’s museums you’re after, Stockholm is full of them, including the National Museum, the ABBA Museum and the Vasa Museum, home to the world’s only preserved 17th-century ship. We can also arrange for you to take a private tour of the city’s metro to take in some of its fabulous art, which is spread across more than 90 stations.

While Stockholm is undoubtedly full of culture and history, there are also plenty of things to do here that will allow you to appreciate the city in a different way. Go to a fik (café or pastry shop) to enjoy a cup of coffee and a pastry; grab some lunch at Östermalms Saluhall, an antique market hall selling food and fresh produce; and dance the night away in one of Stureplan’s many bars. If the weather is on your side, sail into the archipelago to explore the Feather Islands, not far from downtown Stockholm. If you need any other recommendations while you’re here on the best restaurants, activities or sights, don’t hesitate to ask our knowledgeable local Concierge.

DAY 4

FLIGHT HOME

You’ll have some time today to squeeze in some final sightseeing and indulge in one last flaky pastry before heading to the airport for your afternoon or evening flight back to the UK.

A la carte

THE ART OF THE STOCKHOLM METRO



The Stockholm Metro has been home to a curious collection of art since it was first created in the 1950s. Every year, new pieces are added to the collection, which now brightens up over 90 of the metro’s 110 stations and has involved over 150 artists. This tour allows you to explore this artistic underground with a private guide.




WITH A FEW MORE DAYS…




This four-night trip is designed to give you a real taste of Stockholm and the wonderful things it has to offer. If you have a few more days, it can also be integrated into a longer journey through Sweden and its neighbouring countries. After three full days in the capital, why not take the train to Gothenburg – a trendy port city – before journeying through Dalarna’s breathtaking countryside. If you like, you can then explore the wild expanses of the Swedish Far North, or head to Copenhagen, Denmark’s colourful and creative capital. The possibilities are endless, and we can tailor your trip to suit you.
