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 :)

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.
