Experience Stockholm With A Local / Discounts For Couples
We'll visit one of the largest and best-preserved medieval city centers in Europe: Stockholm's Gamla Stan (Old Town). This is where it all started, back in the year 1252. You'll learn about our most important kings—their names are easy to remember—and hear the quirky details about the current royal family. Then we'll unearth one of the best-kept secrets in the city. We'll check out the scene of Stockholm's bloodiest massacre, where over 80 people were executed, and touch a thousand-year-old Viking runestone. You'll walk along the narrowest street of this amazing city and learn why it's a tourist magnet—and I'll also tell you a secret that most people do not know at all. Lastly, we'll admire the beautiful architecture of this unique place and enjoy the experience. At the end I can provide a huge list of recommended activities with restaurants, bars or just ideas what to do after we are done with our walk through the old town. Most importantly, we will do this no matter what kind of weather awaits us—rain or shine, as they say—because I can protect you from even the most severe conditions. Other things to note The tour might last a little bit more than 90 minutes depending on how many questions you will have and how fast we will be moving :)

Dive into lake life in Östermalm

Ice skating on lake Källtorpssjön
Ice skating on lakes, or the sea, is a wonderful winter-activity and very popular in Sweden. This activity is suitable for beginners and for more experienced ice-skaters. We’ll meet at lake “Källtorpssjön”, situated only 15 minutes from Stockholm city by bus. Right by the lake you will pick up your skates which you have pre-ordered (the rent is 20 Euro for an hour) and from there we head straight to the ice. Depending on your previous experience, I’ll teach you the basic technique, or we go skating straight away. After about an hour, we will go inside for some well-deserved hot or cold drinks and some chitchatting about ice-skating, world-peace or anything else. All practical details will be sent upon booking. Hope to see you soon! Br, Martin
Hike and sauna
I welcome you to hiking through beautiful virgin nature near the city. First we will meet up at our house, so that you can leave bags or luggage here, then we will walk right out in nature and after a while we will be out in the wilderness. We will experience cooking over an open fire, and eating by a secret glade and a beautiful forrest lake. Once we reach our house again we will enjoy the culture of Swedish steam sauna, with spa features. In the winter we might go on the ice and in the summer we like to swim in the lakes! What I share with me is mine and my family and friends' favorite hobby, and we are happy to share all the knowledge that we have acquired about Swedish nature and culture since childhood. NOTE Hiking with only a single man unfortunately does not happen. Jag välkomnar till vandring genom vacker natur nära staden. Först hämtar jag er på ett centralt ställe för att åka kollektivt till ett naturreservat som är "mina" hemmamarker. Vi kommer uppleva matlagning över öppen eld, vid hemlig glänta och vacker sjö, med avslutande ångbastu hemma hos oss. På vintern går vi kanske på isen och på sommaren badar vi gärna i sjön! Det jag delar med mig är min och mina familj och vänners favoritsyssla, och vi delar gärna med oss av alla kunskaper som vi har fått med oss om svensk natur och kultur sedan barnsben. OBS Vandring med enbart en ensam man blir tyvärr inte av.
An Introduction to Ice Skating
If you’ve never tried ice skating before, then Stockholm is one of the best places to start! If you do have experience ice skating then you may rather take a look at ‘A Day on the Ice Guided Tour’. Join us for a very Swedish winter adventure; skating on natural ice. It’s such a thrilling sensation gliding over the ice amongst the nature, a truly unique and unforgettable experience! Your experienced guide will brief you on the tour and safety equipment before taking you to the day’s best ice in Stockholm’s outstandingly beautiful natural surroundings. This tour will focus on learning how to Nordic skate, enjoying the scenery and having lots of fun! Your guide will coach you on the best techniques for gliding easily over the ice and there will be some fun practice exercises to perfect those techniques before setting off on your adventure! You will ice skate for 3-4 hours on the beautiful natural ice of the Stockholm archipelago or one of Stockholm’s big lakes, before stopping for a well-earned picnic lunch. There will be hot drinks, an open fire and our classic outdoor lunch on offer. Oh, and good banter with your new skating buddies too! Once lunch is finished there will be more time to enjoy the ice with your renewed energy, before you head back to the city for a relaxing and cozy evening.
Experience a food tour in Stockholm differently
This experience is designed to take you from the crowds to authentic local spots and experience a food tour differently. It is lighter and more relaxed than a typical day tour, and there is also less walking. Instead, the focus is centered around challenging your taste buds! Along the way, you will experience how the people of Stockholm enjoy a day out in this fabulous Scandinavian capital and famous mouthwatering food. We will meet in front of Stockholm City Hall, where the exciting adventure will start. After discovering the City Hall and Stadshusträdgården we will continue our walk through Norrmälarstrand in a beautiful stretch to walk along the shores of Lake Mälaren on Kungsholmen. The beautiful walkway along the water is appreciated by both Stockholmers and tourists. The walk takes about 1 hour at a medium speed. The Västerbron can be seen in the background. It stretches from Södermalm, over Långholmen and Riddarfjärden to Kungsholmen. Our walk will end at Rålambshovsparken, the large park on Kungsholmen, a popular place for picnics. It is impressive walking, and it will make you feel hungry! But no worries, an enchanting picnic is waiting for you. You will test 10 delicious Swedish foods that range from sweet to savory, as well as drinks, like toast Skagen, to unique dishes typical of the city such as Västerbotten cheese and many others.
Stockholm Winter City Kayak Tour
There is nothing quite like having the waterways in the ‘Venice of the North’ to yourself. During wintertime in Stockholm, when the water isn’t frozen and busy with ice skaters, the waterways are left quiet and peaceful which is just perfect for an invigorating paddle. Join us for a 3.5 hour winter city paddle in the capital of Scandinavia and enjoy a hearty lunch or fika whilst looking out over the beautiful Stockholm skyline.

There we serve a Swedish-style soup lunch followed by the famous SWEDISH FIKA (coffee/tea/juice with delicious homemade cinnamon buns and Swedish cakes). We will tell you how important the Swedish FIKA tradition is and how it is slowly spreading even outside the country's borders through us..! Maybe you want a super recipe for cinnamon buns and a doggy bag of cookies to take home after this guided lunch tour? Birgitta lives in a beautiful apartment from 1930, under the roofs of Stockholm. The view over Karlberg Castle is nice and Birgitta can tell several stories about it. Catarinas lives in the so-called Miljon program in Solna, four stations from where we meet. That type of housing changed the lives of many Swedes. She guides to a stunning view with a spectacular sculpture and through the mini forest of "Nothing", also with a royal story to tell. Before the soup lunch and SWEDISH FIKA, in her apartment on the seventh floor. Before these guided lunch tours, we always meet in front of Jakob's church in Kungsträdgården at 12:00, by the statue of Jussi Björling. He is in our memories and stories! We look forward to spending a few hours with you and the other guests. Welcome! Birgitta and Catarina
