With your expert group leader and other locals, explore on foot five of the fourteen islands upon which Stockholm is founded, each with its own character and highlights – from the cobbled streets of historic Gamla Stan to the sustainable development at Hammarby Sjöstad and the hip neighborhood on the Island of Södermalm. Learn about the fascinating city of Stockholm from its Nordic seafaring history to its ecofriendly present and future. Each afternoon, spend some time getting to know the city better with time to explore on your own.
