Itinerary:

For a change of pace, leave the bustling city of Stockholm behind and head out to the  lovely Swedish countryside. Along the fresh water Lake Mälaren, we find both Drottningholm Palace and Sigtuna. Visit Drottningholm Palace & Sigtuna, Sweden’s first town!

The Drottningholm Palace (Drottningholm Slott) is the private residence of the Swedish Royal family, one of the 10 palaces that they have at their disposal. This is where the King and Queen of Sweden and where their three kids, Crown Princess Victoria, Prince Carl-Philip and Princess Madeleine, have grown up. Built on the island Lovön in the late 16th century, it is the most well-preserved royal palace, and is representative of all European architecture of the period. Drottningholm Palace and its grounds are a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Sigtuna: Sigtuna is where it all started. In 970 King Erik the Victorious checked out at the surroundings and found the location where Sigtuna town would be built – a new era in the Swedish history was about to begin. Sigtuna is smallest and the oldest preserved town in Sweden.Here you will find the charming colored wooden houses along the main street, old church ruins, runic stones and amazing view of lake Mälaren. This country charm and the very best cinnamon buns in Sweden make it a popular tourist destination, where many people stop for a traditional Swedish Fika. 

Sigtuna can be exchanged for Lidingö.

Lidingö: As you drive on the island of Lidingö you find a mix of nature reserves, forests, fields and meadows, offering the most wonderful setting. Amongst the green lies a farmstead known as Elviksgården, run like it was back in the day. We step back in time to when most Swedes had pigs, horses and cows. Our favorite place is Långängens Gården, a red wooden home with white corners, from the 1700s set in what feels like the middle of nowhere. The inside gives a taste of what Sweden was like in the 1950. During the summer months this is the perfect spot for a swim in the lake, or sea for that matter, as well as kayaking, biking and barbecuing. The other half of the year Lindingö offers great conditions for cross country skiing, skating and sledding down snow covered hills.
