Stockholm based in Hotel Elite Palace

Explore Sweden’s capital city by bike.

Did you know that Sweden’s capital city is spread across fourteen islands? Well, now you do, it will be no surprise that during this cycle tour you will spend almost all of your time with a view across the water. That is because there is always either the sea or one of the many lakes right nearby. Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s old town and has a lot to offer with its cobbled alleyways, inviting cafes, crooked houses, and the royal castle! Whilst tracing Swedish history from the times of the Vikings up until nowadays, there sure are a lot of interesting things to explore such as Drottningholm palace, Stockholm’s parks, the town of Vaxholm and the idyllic nature which lies all around Stockholm!

Itinerary

In the evening there is a welcome briefing as well as a bike fitting session. Take your first stroll through Sweden’s capital city and explore some of the many sights and tourist attractions.            

On the first day, you cycle alongside the Mälaren, the third largest lake in Sweden, which then leads you to Lövon island. This island is a World Cultural Heritage site and you will find Drottningholm palace here. This palace is where the Swedish Royal family grew up. Afterwards the bike tour heads back towards the city. You cycle over many bridges which connect different neighbourhoods of the town with each other. You cycle through the old town of Södermalm, which was formerly a working-class area but is now where the hipsters and designers live you are cycling through the old town and Skeppsholmen back to your hotel.

What would be a trip to Stockholm without visiting the impressing skerries? This is exactly why todays stage leds you with the bike to Vaxholm. This idyllic small town describes itself as the capital of skerries and is waiting for you with lots of restaurants, little shops and an fortress from the 16th century. Back to Stockholm you get by a ferry, which approx. takes 1 hour.

Today’s stage takes you to a large conservation area with diverse landscapes and many lakes. Today’s destination is the lovely bathing place in Saltsjöbaden.

You cycle to a peninsula, called Djurgården and you pass the Astrid-Lindgren Museum Junibacken and the Vasa Museum. The historical district of Djurgårdstaden is situated behind the amusement park called Gröna Lund. Wherever you look you see falun red houses! You cycle past an open-air museum called Skansen as well as Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsudde and then you continue towards the waterside. From the water’s edge, you get a good view of the harbour entrance and the boats. You then arrive at the southern side of the Djurgårdens. The bike tour continues from Blockhushudden via Djurgårdens northern foothills before you then cycle back.
