Fresh air, broad horizons and a cosy lodge
On your Nordic itineraryDuring
Stockholm in a nutshellThe first two nights of this trip are spent on a quiet island facing the sea, a few minutes walk from the centre of the capital. The charm of the historic building remains, but the hotel has added contemporary details to the interiors, giving them comfort, clean lines and clarity. Enjoy a Scandinavian introduction with a stroll looking out to the sea; trendy addresses and museums in Stockholm at your door. You'll walk around the city with a young local guide, to discover their favourite spots and well-kept secrets. Like a subtitled summary of Stockholm with a local. You can also get a taste of the capital through its food, thanks to the Nordic flavours and the new cuisine that have made Swedish gastronomy renowned. A table is reserved for you in one of our favourite restaurants. Likewise, tickets to the Sturebadet Spa , a real institution in Stockholm, are included. There you can go from hydromassage to aromatherapy, from steam room to sauna - and the Nordic cold seems a distant memory.
Flight to Stockholm
On arrival, private transfer and two-night stay on Skeppsholmen Island, an oasis in the heart of Stockholm. The hotel is a renovated former naval barracks dating back to 1699, set in a long pale yellow building set on the edge of a canal in the middle of the gardens. The interiors ooze tranquillity, thanks to elaborate lighting, mottled furniture, beds with duvets, nothing superfluous. Museums dedicated to modern art, architecture, boats and ABBA are all within walking distance. The walk back and forth from city visits is a delight.
Just for you - Table reservation at one of the best restaurants in the city.
