Add To Plan

Leaving the pier, you'll first head to Stockholm's oldest and coziest quarter, the Old Town (Gamla Stan). Here, you will witness first-hand the historic elegance of the exterior of the impressive Royal Palace. Stroll along the narrow, twisting alleys and cobblestone streets as you experience the medieval intimacy of what is today a living historical monument of international renown. Savor the bohemian atmosphere of the charming houses that date from the 16th to the 19th centuries, complete with Baroque doorways and rusting coats of arms, as you explore with your local guide. You will also see Stortorget, the Great Square and the hub of the Old Town. The square is dominated by the old Stock Exchange which today houses the Nobel Museum and the Swedish Academy. Its members meet here each year to decide the laureate of the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Rejoining your coach, you'll continue through the city center to your final stop, the Nordic Hotel. Located in the heart of the city, this is where you will find the world's first permanent ice bar. The inside of this unique establishment is kept at below zero temperature - five degrees Centigrade, all year round and everything in its interior, including the glasses, is made of pure, clear ice from the Torne River in Northern Sweden. All visitors to the bar are provided with warm fur ponchos and mittens before entering and a complimentary drink in an ice glass will be served. As you enjoy your beverage, the staff of the Ice Bar will happily tell you more about the bar and its unusual construction. After what's sure to be a memorable visit, you'll be returned to the pier where your tour concludes.

Please note: This tour is not available to wheelchair guests and not recommended for those guests with mobility concerns. Non-alcoholic beverages may be served if the bar is unable to offer vodka. To avoid congestion, the tour sequence may vary. Flat, comfortable walking shoes are suggested.
