With summer finally upon us and the longest days of the year, June and July are perfect months to explore Stockholm both indoors and outdoors, with a wealth of events and attractions. The longer days mean you will have more time to explore the city and its attractions, from the historic Old Town to taking a boat out to the archipelago. As Stockholm is built of 14 different islands connected by over 50 bridges it invites our visitors to enjoy the beautiful waterfront, and one can enjoy a dip in one of the clean and well-maintained public beaches. Here are two of our favorite indoor activities and two outdoor activities.


Experience Swedish culture and nature at the world’s oldest open-air museum. Skansen is one of the most popular outdoor museums and home to wild Nordic animals such as moose, lynxes and wolverines. Located on Royal Djurgården and offers spectacular views over all of Stockholm, this is a wonderful activity for the whole family.


Fjäderholmarna is a short boat ride from the harbor of Nybroviken. Take a nice walk around the island and enjoy local artisans and their handmade crafts. We highly recommend to plan for a delicious lunch at Fjäderholmarnas Krog or just enjoy a cooling ice-cream while enjoying the sun on the surrounding rocks.

There are many fun and exciting activities to do during the summer in Stockholm, and something for everyone. Take the opportunity to discover everything that Stockholm has to offer this summer. We hope that our tips can provide inspiration for a memorable summer in the beautiful Swedish capital.
