Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Your tour begins as you board your motorcoach for a short drive to Riddarholmen, a small islet in central Stockholm that houses a number of private palaces dating back to the 17th century.

View the exterior of Riddarholmen Church, a 13th-century monastery built by Franciscan monks and the final resting place of most Swedish kings. Adjacent to the church is the Old Parliament Building, the starting point for your rooftop adventure.

You'll ride the elevator to the attic and step out into the open. After a safety orientation, you'll don your helmet and safety harness, and navigate the narrow, iron-railed path of the rooftop as your guide narrates stories of Stockholm and points out the views.

From atop the Old Parliament Building, you'll witness Stockholm from above and such sites as the stately 608-room Royal Palace on the waterfront.

Next, you'll embark on a narrated walking tour, strolling the narrow, cobbled streets, witnessing buildings from the 16th to 19th centuries, as well as art studios, chic boutiques, restaurants and shops.

Your tour concludes with a scenic drive back to the pier.
