Cycling in cosy yet cosmopolitan Stockholm is the best way to see the city like a local. You’ll explore Stockholm’s National City Park, a unique eco-park. Your guide will lead you on a ride through stunning natural surroundings close to the city. Riding from the city along the waterfront, you’ll pass Astrid Lindgren’s World and the Vasa Museum before reaching the Estonia Memorial and the Galärkyrkogården Cemetery. Next stop is the old quarter, Djurgårdsstaden, situated behind the Gröna Lund amusement park. Some of the quarter’s beautiful wooden houses date back to the 18th century.
Afterwards, you’ll pass by the Skansen open-air museum and the well-known Waldemarsudde art museum. Continue cycling along the waterfront for a look at the entrance to Stockholm’s harbour and the boats passing by. You’ll also have a nice view of Feather Island, where LO Smith sold home-brewed vodka illegally at the end of the 19th century. From Blockhusudden you’ll continue on through the scenic surroundings of the northern parts of Djurgården before heading back to your starting point.
