Explore Stockholm from a unique perspective

There is an abundance of sights to visit when you find yourself in the capital of Sweden, and Stockholm Adventures gives you the opportunity to see the highlights from a variety of perspectives, under the guidance of experienced locals.
Stockholm is a city built over a multitude of islands, with water and wild nature easily accessible to everyone. Joakim Malm, owner and guide, had a dream to give every visitor the chance to experience this sense of nature within the city when he founded ICEguide in 2007, later acquiring Stockholm Adventures and today offering a variety of guided tours and experiences all year around.
“I want to show everyone the greatest city on earth from its best side,” says Malm, and he does just that with an exciting range of activities and a great team of guides. You can enjoy Stockholm from the water on a Kayak Tour – both in the city and in the archipelago – or immerse yourself in nature on a Wildlife Safari Tour with the chance to spot a moose and try an authentic Swedish Midsummer meal, or why not take a bicycle ride around central Stockholm to see the cultural and historical highlights? Aiming to be a leader in sustainable tourism, Stockholm Adventures takes great measures to minimise its environmental impact while touring and makes ecological choices wherever possible.
The majority of tours start from the Adventure Café, conveniently located in the heart of Stockholm. All tours are in English as standard, with the addition of German and Dutch available on Bike Tours and special requests for private touring. Tour bookings canbe made easily through the website, with staff on hand daily, for most of the year, to help in person, over the phone or via email.
