On the Town
This Modern City Walk is meant for well versed travelers who want to explore different parts of the city. We’ll move around using buses and metro, take in various sights, browse through stores, and grab a bite to eat. In other words, hang out and do what the locals do. Or we can rent Segways – that’s a fun way to explore Stockholm! Click on the image above to read more.
The most fun way to travel is when you visit friends in other countries. But what if you arrive in a place where you don’t know anyone? That’s what my city walks are all about. I am a 4th generation native Stockholmer with great knowledge of my home town. So if you are looking for a friend in Stockholm, you have just found one.
