As the days grow shorter and cold weather takes over the city, Stockholm starts to transform into a winter wonderland. The snow-capped roofs and trees make for a beautiful display on the shores of the inner city islands. The Swedish capital is built on 14 islands connected by 57 bridges, which makes it the perfect city for a boat tour.
This 1-hour voyage will take you from the island of Gamla Stan passed the islands of Norrmalm, Djurgården, Skeppsholmen and Södermalm before returning to Gamla Stan. The cruise sails all the way around Skeppsholmen and Kastellholmen, both islands are exceptionally green in spring and summer while in winter the islands and the museums on their shores are covered in a white blanket of snow.
From the boat many of Djurgården’s amazing attractions can be spotted, including Junibacken, the Vasa Museum, Sprit Museum, ABBA the Museum and amusement park Gröna Lund. While the shore of Södermalm offers sights of the world's largest photography museum, Fotografiska, and the striking architecture of the island.
As you watch the city go by outside the windows, a local guide will tell you all about the sights you can see in English. Along the way you can enjoy a free cup of coffee or tea, and mulled wine at Christmas time, and a delicious sweet bite. And if you want some more, such as other snacks or drinks, you can buy those with the onboard café service.
There is also free Wi-Fi on board so you can make all your friends and family at home a little jealous with pictures of your Scandinavian adventure.
