About Stockholm

Stockholm, Sweden's capital, is made up of 14 small islands, each distinct in character and mood; from the upmarket Östermalm and the bohemian Södermalm to the historic Gamla Stan. Stockholm is often referred to as the `Venice of the North', with its pretty islands and 52 connecting bridges. Stockholm is also considered to be the capital of Scandinavia, and is a popular tourist destination offering visitors beautiful landscape, stylish boutiques, stunning art galleries and much more.

Stockholm offers its visitors an array of exciting things to see and do. Museums include the Skansen open-air museum of Swedish life and culture, with historic buildings, working farms, a zoo and an aquarium. There is a vast number of walking tours and excursions to enjoy in Stockholm, and many important buildings to visit. The Royal Djurgarden park is an island consisting of beautiful parkland and forest, and the Old Town of Stockholm offers the Drottningholm Palace, which is the home of the Swedish Royal Family; and the remains of the Viking settlement, Birka. History lovers can take a guided city tour, which is offered in many different languages.

There is also plenty for younger visitors to do in Stockholm, from the Junibacken park, the wonderful world of master story-teller Astrid Lindgren, to attractions such as the Museum of Music, the Toy Museum and Skansen's Aquarium.

    Great Way to Go between Helsinki and Stockholm
    • Wonderful journey, experience on the ship and value. Booking through AFerry was great, easy, killer price. When you check in you have to go to a person though, cannot use the automated kiosk.

    • I spent 8 days in my journey to Europe and this 17 hours in the ferry was the best.

    Trip To Stockholm
    • Good on board facilities. The spa only stayed open until 9.30 - only 4.5hrs into a cruise this isn't long enough. The buffet was amazing and really enjoyed that. Entertainment on the board was good fun and we enjoyed watching this in the casino. Staff could have been friendlier and were briefed to sell water to passengers, rather than provide tap water at the bars. 2 Euros a bottle and I was drinking alcohol as well, so this was not pleasing

    Great overnight trip
    • We were welcomed aboard about four in the afternoon. Staff were very friendly. We were surprised by the facilities on board. Beautiful shops, restaurants and bars... even a small casino! Our berth was small but comfortable. We got up early next morning, eating breakfast on the top deck as we sailed into Stockholm through hundreds of small beautiful islands. Highly recommend this trip.
