Go on a wonderful guided tour by boat in a wintery Stockholm. The boat travels along the city's quays and round Fjäderholmarna and then back towards the city. If you are really lucky, the sea will be frozen and the boat breaks through the ice as it goes - a real highlight! During the boat trip, the guide will tell you interesting facts and anecdotes about Stockholm and its’ surroundings. For those who dare defy the cold you can sit outdoors and enjoy the beautiful views from the prime spot on the upper deck - and don’t worry, there are plenty of reindeer pelts to keep you warm! You can also enjoy warming soup and drinks in the café on the boat. Stockholm winter tour. Read more and book
