Travel to Stockholm – Useful links

This post has been written in collaboration with HEKLA.

In case you missed it, here’s how we spent our 3 days in Stockholm.

Although we didn’t have much time in the city, we really enjoyed it. One of the reasons was that I did a lot of research before we departed, which helped us saving time wondering where to go or what to do.

Of course, we didn’t (or couldn’t) do all the things in the list, but at least we had alternatives to choose from.

So today I decided to share my “research” here so that you can save a little time looking around and collecting your own links.

Most of the links here are about free tours, what to do in Stockholm, recommended day trips, and so on.

The most useful website, for me, must be visitstockholm.com – the official travel website of Stockholm. Here you can find all the information you need for a trip to “the capital of Scandinavia”.

Once you arrive in the city, maybe you would like to take a free walking tour then!

To be honest, I’m not a big fan of “free walking tour”. However, with this operation, I just had a good impression on them, so if we had had more time in Stockholm, we could have taken it as part of our activities!

Talking about free stuff, did you know that Stockholm’s metro system is such a huge art gallery? And SL – Stockholm Public Transport, also offers free guided walks of the art in the metro throughout the year! However, from September to May, tours are guided in Swedish only. If you happen to understand this language or any related one, check here for more information & schedule.

While drowning in information from Google, I found this website – Slow Travel Stockholm. If you’re still wondering what slow travel is, think about the famous slow food trend years ago.

In this website, you can find very interesting articles, such as the “50 free things to do in Stockholm”, or how to plan a day trip to Drottningholm (a.k.a. Versailles of the North), and so on.

Of course I cannot copy all the links available on the Internet and paste them here. You also have your own taste of travelling, for sure. However, I hope this small collection may help you more or less saving time searching for your trip.

If you’re living somewhere in Scandinavia, here is how to plan a weekend trip to Stockholm, or you can refer to another three-day itinerary in the city.
