Add To Plan

Commence with a drive to hilltop Fjaellgatan for a splendid panoramic view of Stockholm and the inner harbor. Upon descending, you'll drive to the medieval Old Town of Gamla Stan to admire the exterior of the Royal Palace and perhaps stroll the twisting alleys and cobblestone streets of Stockholm's oldest quarter. Many of the houses date from the 16th and 17th centuries and feature Baroque doorways with centuries-old coats of arms. After visiting the Great Square of Stortorget, the hub of Old Town, enjoy free time for shopping and lunch on your own.

Later, you'll rejoin your group and drive to the nearby island of Djurgarden, once the royal family's private hunting grounds, to visit the Vasa Museum. The museum's dramatic centerpiece is the resurrected "Vasa," a ship that capsized and sank in the harbor on its maiden voyage in 1628. It has been painstakingly restored and many of the artifacts from the ill-fated journey are on display, giving remarkable insight into 17th-century Stockholm.

Afterwards, continue through the northern outskirts of the city into the scenic countryside to Sigtuna, an idyllic town with wooden houses, narrow alleys and Scandinavia's smallest Town Hall, dating from 1744. Founded on Lake Maelaren nearly 1,000 years ago by the first Christian King of Sweden, Sigtuna is rich in history, especially around Stora Gatan, the oldest street in Sweden. After this visit, you'll drive back to the pier.

Please note: Guests must be able to walk approximately 400 yards through the Vasa Ship Museum and approximately 1.5 miles over cobblestone streets through the Old Town and Sigtuna and there will be steps to negotiate. There is an elevator in the Vasa Ship Museum. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to carefully evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing and flat, comfortable walking shoes are recommended. The tour sequence may vary.
