Why I love Sweden
“There's something so wholesome and healthy about Sweden. People here really know how to take advantage of their gorgeous country, from its scenic beauty to its edible bounty.

Viking History Half-Day Tour from Stockholm
Start your tour with a pickup from your centrally located Stockholm hotel. Settle into your comfortable minivan for your journey north into Sweden’s beautiful interior as your driver-guide lifts the lid on the country’s Viking and medieval history.Your first stop is at Täby to see the Jarlabankes bro, an ancient Viking causeway. View the runic stones here and continue to Arkils Tingstad, the site of an age-old Viking assembly. Walk around the circles of ancient stones here — they were once used as seats by parliament members when they discussed disputes and laid down new laws for the area.Next, travel through the picturesque Vallentuna region to Granby, an important Viking settlement in around 400 to 500 AD. See the decoratively carved Granbyhällen, Sweden’s longest inscription in runic stone, and then enjoy a break of roughly an hour for lunch (own expense) at a nearby café. Travel to the medieval church at Orkesta (Orkesta Kyrka) to see its beautiful runic stones and 12th-century wall paintings, and then on through the picturesque Lunda region to Sweden’s oldest town, Sigtuna. Established in the 10th century, this charming place boasts narrow lanes, fine churches and many relics and runic stones from the Viking age. Enjoy time at your leisure to stroll around its historical sites and perhaps pick up some souvenirs at its many interesting craft shops and boutiques.Later, return to your minivan for your drive back to Stockholm. Your tour comes to an end with a hotel drop-off in the mid-afternoon.
The Original Stockholm Ghost Walk and Historical Tour
As the evening closes in, your experienced ghost-guide will light his lantern and lead you through a maze of forgotten courtyards, deserted alleyways and empty cobble-streets in search of the places where history meets mystery. Not only will you hear true accounts of ghosts, poltergeists and haunted places but also of murders, unsolved mysteries, myths and legends. Is your stomach strong enough for tales of disease and of public executions? On your tour, you will even have the chance to taste, as well as smell, medieval Stockholm as your guide brings the past back to life.Sensible, comfortable walking shoes are a must and remember to wrap-up extra warm between November and March. The haunting don't stop for bad weather and neither do we. Parental discretion is advised for children under the ages of 8.
