Sigtuna: Lake Mälaren Historic Sites Kayak Tour with Lunch

1. Sigtuna: Lake Mälaren Historic Sites Kayak Tour with Lunch

This tour is a combination of some of the Swedish essentials on a full day trip from Stockholm or Uppsala. Paddle kayak on Lake Mälaren, explore historic sites and countryside, experience serene nature and walk through Swedens first medieval capital Sigtuna - today a cozy wooden town with some historic artefacts. Your guide will meet you in Märsta - a suburb in the north of Stockholm - where you start your experience. After a short drive you will first get full instructions of kayak paddling and start your adventure on the Sweden's third largest lake. Planned route is approx. 12 km but can vary slightly according to weather conditions and it takes some 3 hours of active paddling but with plenty of stops for sightseeing, walks, lunch and maybe even for a refreshing swim. You will see the posh baroque Steninge palace, the royal Rosersberg palace with its picturesque park, runestones, hike to the iron age settlement in Runsa and enjoy panoramic views over the lake from its top. The tour rounds up with a guided walk through Sigtuna with ruins of medieval churches, runestones and idyllic wooden architecture. There will be even time for ice cream by the lake before you will head back to the starting point!

We discovered the best guide we've ever met in Sweden for kayaking in one of Sweden's biggest lakes next to Stockholm. Without a doubt, this is the best day our family spent in the wilderness kayaking on a beautiful lake with a professional, fun and very interesting guide Simas. The best choice for the whole family if you're looking for an amazing family fun experience just outside of Stockholm.
