Explore Stockholm and the surrounding area of the Swedish capital on a weekend. You cycle through a variety of neighborhoods and environments, almost always near the shore – one of the many lakes or the sea are always close at hand. In the footsteps of Swedish history from the Viking Age to the present, there are many interesting things to explore: Drottningholm Palace, the National City Park, the small town of Vaxholm and the idyllic countryside around Stockholm.
Take your first stroll through Sweden’s capital and explore some of the many sights and tourist attractions. In the evening, meet up in the hotel for your welcome briefing and bike fitting.
Today, you ride to the World Heritage Listed Drottningholm Palace, home of the Swedish royal family, on the island of Lovön. On the return journey you get to ride across several of the bridges that link the city’s districts. Beautiful panoramic views await you. After passing through Södermalm, the former working class district now populated by hipsters, second hand stores and independent designers, you cycle past the Old Town and into the island of Skeppsholmen, with it’s impressive modern art sculpture garden.
You’ll leave the capital in a north-easterly direction and soon you’re out in the country. After two short ferry trips you reach “the Capital of the Archipelago”, Vaxholm. There are restaurants, shops, a fortress from the 16th century and a lively boating culture. The ferry back to Stockholm departs regularly and takes about 50 minutes.
Ride through some of the greater Stockholm area’s most beautiful natural settings, spread amongst areas like Skogskyrkogården, full of classic churches and peaceful cemeteries. Visit another of Sweden’s lovely World Heritage Listed places.
Today you ride to the Royal island of Djurgården and pass the classic old amusement park of Gröna Lund, as well as the Vasa Museum. The next stop is the old quarter Djurgårdsstaden, where some of the beautiful wooden houses date back to the 18th century. Thereafter you pass the open air museum Skansen and the famous art museum Waldemarsudde. You will cycle along the waterfront for a while, where you can take in Stockholm’s beautiful harbor entrance and the boats passing by.
After breakfast your Stockholm bike holiday ends. We are happy to book extra days for you.
