Planning Your Visit
When to go?
Swedish winters can be pretty bleak so it's worth avoiding them if you're not a fan of short days and snow! Temperatures hit their balmy highs between June and August, though they bring with them higher attraction ticket and hotel prices. If you're on a budget and don't mind mild weather, then the blooming spring makes May the best time to visit for sightseeing!
How many days?
Most of Stockholm's attractions are located within a small area, and could be covered within 3 days. That said, many of the bigger museums are extensive and eclectic enough to warrant a full day, as does Drottningholm Palace, so you could easily fill a week. Also note that many of the museums are closed on Mondays.

What people are saying about Stockholm
This was a perfect tour! Be sure to do this early on in your trip so you can have a general idea of where everything is. It was a perfect balance of sight-seeing and physical activity. The bikes were light-weight and great! Its so much better than a walking tour. You cover a much larger area in a much shorter time in a cooler way.
Een leuke tour net de gids Pascal die er veel humor in bracht. Duurt ook niet te lang. Bus gaat eerst overf de weg door de stad en het laatste stukje varend. Gewoon doen.
We had a lot of fun on this tour! It was something we hadn’t done before on our travels. Recommend :)
Wonderful guide! Very knowledgeable and friendly and covered a lot of territory in only two hours.
Great way to see the area around Stockholm. Guide was sharing great insights. Enjoyed it a lot
