Day 1  Stockholm Arrival
Upon arrival at the airport, private transfer to your hotel. Check in, then time at leisure. Stockholm, one of the most beautiful capitals in the world, is built on 14 islands, and connected by 57 bridges. With 750 years of history and rich cultural life, Stockholm offers a wide selection of world class museums and attractions, most of which can be reached on foot. 4 nights accommodation in Stockholm.

Day 2  Stockholm Sightseeing By Coach and Boat
This extensive, 3½ hr sightseeing tour combines coach travel with a short boat trip, to see the city at its finest. Start by travelling through the city’s main districts and past the most famous places, buildings and views – a stop is also made at Fjällgatan, for wonderful views of Stockholm’s islands and waterways (weather permitting). Then board the boat to travel under 15 bridges and through 2 locks, both of which connect the Baltic Sea with vast Lake Mälaren. Also see the inner city and Old Town, the islands Södermalm, Lilla and Stora Essingen, Hammarby Sjöstad and the green areas of Djurgården. A great way to see the city from a different perspective, while learning a little about the locale and its history. Remainder of the day at leisure.

Day 3 Drottningholm Palace & Chinese Pavilion By Boat
Today enjoy an excursion out of the city to Drottningholm Palace, beautifully situated on an island in one of Lake Mälaren’s small inlets. A magnificent, turn of the century ship takes you from Stockholm City Hall out to the royal residence, and the journey is a great way to enjoy the water views. The UNESCO Listed Drottningholm is Sweden’s best-preserved royal castle, built in the 1600’s and a fine representation of European architecture of the time. The Chinese Pavilion is a remarkable treasure, hidden away in the palace’s majestic grounds, and built in the mid-1700’s when Chinoiserie was the height of European fashion. The tour takes between 5 and 8 hours, depending on the time you spend at the castle- there are several departures on the boat back to Stockholm.

Day 4  Stockholm Privately Guided Culinary and Culture Tour
Today enjoy an in-depth, 4 hour privately guided gastronomic tour, a fascinating way to experience Stockholm’s food culture and culinary delights. The tour focuses on the oldest parts of town, beginning in Östermalm’s renowned food hall, and continuing on to Gamla Stan, the historical town centre. Tastings include an assortment of Swedish cheeses and game meats, seasonal fruit/vegetables, local honey, seafood canapés and a bowl of fish soup with a glass of white wine, caramel-choc and hot chocolate or ice-cream, Swedish liquorice and a piece of Polkagris (confectionery), plus Fika (coffee or tea with a cinnamon roll). A great combination of sightseeing and a carefully selected menu makes for a tour with a difference. Remainder of the day at leisure.
