Day 1 Stockholm: Arrival
Upon arrival in Stockholm make your own way to your hotel, then time at leisure. Perhaps visit the Vasa Museum - the impressive warship Vasa sank on her maiden voyage in 1628 but was salvaged 333 years later in 1961. She has since been restored and can now be seen with her complete rigging. Also walk the charming streets of the famous old town, Gamla Stan, and enjoy sitting in the many bars, cafes and restaurants, to watch the passing parade. Or indulge in some Nordic shopping in the many quirky boutiques and homeware stores.

Today enjoy a panoramic bus tour through the central city districts, past many landmarks including the Royal Palace, Parliament Buildings, Djurgården Island, Skansen open-air museum and the old town, Gamla Stan, with its narrow cobbled streets and numerous antique shops. Then travel by boat under 15 bridges and through 2 locks connecting the Baltic Sea with Lake Mälaren, past the inner city and old town, the islands of Södermalm, Lilla and Stora Essingen, and the peaceful green area of Djurgården. Remainder of the day at leisure.
