    Your Escorted Stockholm City Break Holiday

    Join us on this short break to Stockholm, a vibrant city brimming with history, culture, and stunning architecture. On a guided walking tour we'll delve into the history of the city where we'll discover Gamla Stan, the charming old town with its cobblestone streets and colourful buildings. We'll embark on a boat trip around Stockholm's archipelago, a vast network of over 30,000 islands, and take in the scenic surroundings. There will be plenty of leisure time to explore the capital at our own pace with tips on what to see and do in Stockholm from our local guide. Music fans can enjoy a trip to the ABBA Museum, where you can learn more about this legendary Swedish band and of course an iconic winner of the Eurovision Song Contest. For history buffs or nature lovers, we recommend the Vasa Museum and the Skansen open-air museum with its Scandinavian Zoo.
