If it summer and the weather is nice. A ride on a canoe/kayak or a boat during an evening in Stockholm is probably one of the best place to be (Stockholm archipelago is even better). This if you like nature and city combined. You can more or less travel around the whole of the city (you have to pass a... More

Since none of the more grand Archipelago tours were available in mid November, I elected to take the Canal Cruise. It was only 50 minutes and consisted of a circle around the same island the house the Vasa museum. If you get around Stockholm, you probably have already seen everything you are going to see from this cruise.
