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 scenic drive to Fjällgatan, one of Stockholm's highest points, offering panoramic views of the city skyline and its graceful waterways. Here, you'll stop to marvel at the breathtaking scenery as you capture a photo or two.

You'll continue on to the neighboring island of Djurgården, regarded as Stockholm's outdoor recreation center, but also the area where you will find the Vasa Museum, a museum built specifically to house the Vasa, the oldest fully preserved ship in the world, with more than 95 percent of the ship in its original form. The too thin, too tall Vasa sailed for less than 20 minutes when the wind caught her sails and toppled the warship. The ship sank almost immediately and stayed in the mud of the Stockholm harbor for over 300 years before she was raised in 1961. Not only was the ship perfectly preserved in the brackish water of the Baltic Sea, but over 12,000 artifacts were also recovered.

After a guided tour, you'll explore the museum's other exhibits and displays of historic items recovered from the harbor floor. Souvenir shopping is also on the agenda.

Your tour concludes with a panoramic drive through the City Center en route to the pier. Along the way, you will pass such historic sites as the National Museum and the Royal Dramatic Theater.
