Flights to Stockholm

Flights to Stockholm take you to a place unlike any other. Instead of row upon row of skyscrapers, the city, which is built across 14 islands, has large sections devoted to parks and woodlands. There’s also the spectacular Lake Mälaren.

This friendly city can broadly be divided into old and new. The historic part, Gamla Stan, is a labyrinth of cobbled streets and interesting architecture. On the other hand the more modern side has plenty of restaurants, hotels and cultural sights to keep travellers entertained.

Stockholm is a cosmopolitan city with a diverse population, so there’s a wide range of dining options to choose from, and something to suit all budgets. The shopping scene is quite varied too, with craft shops sitting comfortably alongside high-end boutiques. And at the end of a long day of sightseeing, there are world-class lounges and nightlife venues just waiting to welcome you in.

When you’re done with all that dining and dancing, it’s time to head outdoors. Stockholm is a brilliant destination for an active holiday, with a natural beauty that is truly breathtaking. Witness it strolling along the shores of the Baltic Sea, or by heading into the woods for a hike.

You can go island-hopping or stick to solid land and learn about the city’s Viking history (did you know that the Swedes never wore the famous horned Viking helmets?). Once you’re done exploring, there are plenty of hotels to choose from, ranging from the luxurious to the budget-friendly, which more than live up to the Swedish reputation for impeccable design.

Socialise at Icebar Stockholm

As the first permanent ice bar in the world, Icebar Stockholm is made entirely of frozen water from the Torne River in northern Sweden. The only things that aren't made of ice are the beverages and the staff. Be sure to wrap up warm before entering, unless you want to become part of the furniture.

Explore Millesgården

Beautiful terraces, fountains and stairways adorn this property, but it is the exceptional sculptures in the garden that make it worth the visit.

Wander the streets of Gamla Stan

Gamla Stan is the old part of the city and is where Stockholm was founded in 1252. Not only is it one of the most impressive medieval centres in Europe, the cobbled streets are full of shops and cafes. The churches of Gamla Stan are among the largest in the world. Stockholm Cathedral is a good starting point.
