Day 2 - Stockholm - Djurgården History & Fun

After breakfast start your first full Stockholm day visiting the green island of Djurgården (app.2 km from your hotel), where many of the children’s attractions are in close proximity to one another.

Begin your Djurgården exploration in the Vasa Museum with a private 2,5 tour. The Vasa ship capsized and sank in Stockholm 1628. After 333 years on the sea bed the mighty warship was salvaged so the voyage could continue. The museum offers lots of exciting things for children and adults to learn together.

Enjoy a lunch and delicious ice creams by the sea and continue your day getting to know one of the most popular pop groups of all times; ABBA. In ABBA Museum you will experience the feeling of being the 5th ABBA member. So find out what you would look like in their legendary stage costumes, sing at the Polar Studio, experience exciting 3D avatars, and enter the stage together with the band. Your material will be recorded on your personal ID number on your entrance ticket.

On Djurgården you will find also the fairytale world of Junibacken and the amusement park Gröna Lund with plenty of attractions for kids and adults alike. Across the street from Gröna Lund is also Skansen – a popular open-air museum, complete with historical buildings, Nordic animals, a children’s zoo and an aquarium.

Day 3 - Kayaking city tour of central Stockholm with guide

After breakfast, head to the kayak dock, located right in the heart of the city. All the kayak guides are local, qualified and experienced, so they take time to run through some basic paddling techniques and safety information with you before you set off on your adventure. The private kayaking tours have an easy tempo to suit all abilities; many persons who paddle have no previous experience, and the techniques are easy to learn.

Enjoy a leisurely sightseeing paddle that allows you a fabulous vantage point as you look in on the city from your kayak. Feel the pulse of the city from a very different perspective! Throughout the tour, your guide regales you with stories and offers insights into local customs, history, culture, and lifestyle.

Around lunchtime, finish this tour and then enjoy your 24-hour Stockholm card to explore the city further. If you are travelling in winter, we can alternate this tour with an iceskating tour on the rivers. We also suggest adding a wildlife safari to see Elk if this might suit your family (depending on the ages of your children).

The city is also covered with well-equipped public playgrounds, ideal for a few hours of air and exercise as well as fun! These are great places to take your children to play with and get to know local Danish children and to meet their families or to just enjoy a few hours peace and quiet while your kids play.

Tivoli Gardens - a true fairy tale for kids as well as their mum and dad. This amusement park is a must for all visitors to the city and located just a few minutes walk from your hotel.
