“The water gives Stockholm its fame”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

The fact that Stockholm, wether it be the Baltic or Lake Mälaren, is surrounded, almost submerged into water, gives the town its magic. Almost everywhere you turn you will find loads of water and in the summer these are filled with the local's yachts. Just to sit around the different lakesides is a great enjoyment and the opportunity to take a break should be appriciated.

“Very nice boat trip”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

We liked the trip to Drottningholm and the stroll in the gardens. The Chinese Pavillion and the Palace are quite normal, although nice, if you have already been to the German, Austrian and Portuguese palaces. There was an opera by Mozart at the theatre but we didn't go, we hadn't known about it. The weather was a problem as one time the sun was shining the other it was raining a lot. Nevertheless the banks of the lake are very nice and luxuriant and you can see the people enjoying the water and sports. It's worth having this boatride.

“The heart and soul of Stockholm”
Reviewed 27 July 2013

You can't miss Lake Malaren wherever you go in beautiful Stockholm. Go on a guided boat tour, go on an adventure in the Stockholm archipelago and just enjoy the great blue around you or go for a dip if it's summer.

“Enchanting Sweden”
Reviewed 28 May 2013

Stockholm (though i had a bad back and couldnt walk that much) is very pretty , a mix of old and modern architecture surrounded by canals , and bars set on boats! Lake Malaren is magnificent with its majestic fjords and mounts and valleys , night birds whistling under bright stars shinning in the deep dark swedish nights.Magical! A must see ! i will go again as soon as i can !
