1. Stockholm: Under the Bridges Boat Tour
Book this 2 hour and 15 minutes sightseeing tour and experience Stockholm from the water. Board your sightseeing vessel and listen to the recorded commentary available in 10 languages as you take in the iconic sights of this stunning city. The boat tour takes you under several bridges and you’ll pass through a lock that connects the Baltic Sea with Lake Mälaren. Along the way you’ll see the sights of Stockholm’s inner city, the Old Town, Södermalm Island, Lilla Essingen and Stora Essingen, the new area known as Hammarby Sjöstad, and the green areas of Royal Djurgården. This is the perfect sightseeing choice when visiting Stockholm, and is suitable for families as well as adults.
This was way better than expected. Very informative about Stockholm & relevant Swedish history and of course the views were spectacular!
2. Stockholm: Viking Museum Exhibition and Viking Ride
Jump back to the 10th century and experience the fabled Viking era as if you were really there. Through hourly tours, conducted in either English or Swedish, get a real impression of what life was like for the Vikings — from bloody battles and vicious plundering, to idyllic farm life and a complex system of religious belief. You’ll even come face to face with a model of life-sized Viking, created using DNA recovered from centuries-old remains, along with countless other artifacts and impressive reconstructions. Hop on the thrilling ride, Ragfrid’s Saga, to get a real taste of a Viking’s daily life, told from the perspective of a Viking warrior’s wife. To cap it all off, grab a bite at Glöd, the museum’s modern Nordic restaurant, with sweeping views of the Stockholm harbor.
The museum is located in a beautiful spot. The exhibition is interesting and the ride is great. The staff is nice and friendly. There's also a nice shop and cafe. Altogether a worthwhile experience!

What people are saying about Stockholm County
Just a nice experience. Everything true to nature, relaxing for the soul! I can only recommend a visit to Skansen to anyone who wants to get to know old Sweden.
Interesting to hear about our country's history and Stockholm, our fine capital. So different to go and see the city from the water side. So beautiful!
When it rains, it is an ideal and interesting pastime, especially with three puffing children.
Terrific commentary. Clean comfortable boat. Highly recommend.
