Stockholm, Sweden-port

The “Venice of the North,” spanning 14 small islands at the outflow of Lake Mälar into the Baltic, Stockholm is the largest city in Scandinavia and architecturally one of the finest in the world, with broad streets, waterside parks and many pedestrian walkways. For a taste of the city, take a walking tour of Old Town, and particularly the Royal Palace and beautiful Riddarholm Church; take in the views from the observation deck in the Town Hall; or visit one of the Skeppsholmen Museums, including Skeppsholm Church (1842), the Museum of Architecture, the Museum of East Asian Art and the Modern Museum. A main attraction near the center of town is the Vasa Museum, on the island of Djurgården, displaying the almost fully intact 64-gun warship Vasa, that sank on her maiden voyage in 1628.

Tour Code: STO-001

Dramatically situated at the point where Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea, Stockholm was founded as a fortress in the mid-13th century. Over time, the fortress attracted a populace living outside its walls, and the town eventually spread over more than a dozen islands and onto the mainland. Today, the capital of Sweden encompasses five unique city districts, each with its own special character.

This panoramic tour allows you to view Stockholm's most notable landmarks from the comfort of your coach. Enjoy a splendid panoramic view of the city from Fjällgatan, a popular hilltop for taking pictures, then drive around Gamla Stan, Stockholm's medieval Old Town, past the dignified Royal Palace and by the charming inner harbor. Another highlight is the Royal Dramatic Theater, which you will see along Strandvägen, one of the city's finest streets, as you proceed to the verdant island of Djurgården, once a royal hunting preserve. Following your tour of the city, you'll transfer directly back to the pier.

Please note: This tour is panoramic in nature with limited optional walking at any stops made. The tour is available to wheelchair guests who have a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their own way on and off the coach and have an able-bodied companion to assist them and is suitable for those with mobility concerns. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned only to participate to the extent of their personal stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing; sunglasses; and flat, comfortable shoes are recommended. The order of the sites may vary.
