“Birka”
Reviewed January 28, 2014

Birka was one of the few known towns or cities of the Vikings and is on a beautiful island in Lake Malaren. The Vikings traded with much of Eurasia. Recreated Viking vessels and a town built according to experimental archaeologists, in the traditional forms, and with traditional tools is splendid -- as is the museum The boat trip from Stockholm and return takes most of a summer day. One of the best, among the many wonderful things, I experienced in Sweden.

“The waterway of Stockholm”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

When you walk around in Stockholm and the Old Town you Always have lake Malaren next to you. Yesterday there was a regatta on Riddarfjärden. Nice to see. The water is the nice glue of the different parts and islands of Stockholm.

“The water gives Stockholm its fame”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

The fact that Stockholm, wether it be the Baltic or Lake Mälaren, is surrounded, almost submerged into water, gives the town its magic. Almost everywhere you turn you will find loads of water and in the summer these are filled with the local's yachts. Just to sit around the different lakesides is a great enjoyment and the opportunity to take a break should be appriciated.

“Very nice boat trip”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

We liked the trip to Drottningholm and the stroll in the gardens. The Chinese Pavillion and the Palace are quite normal, although nice, if you have already been to the German, Austrian and Portuguese palaces. There was an opera by Mozart at the theatre but we didn't go, we hadn't known about it. The weather was a problem as one time the sun was shining the other it was raining a lot. Nevertheless the banks of the lake are very nice and luxuriant and you can see the people enjoying the water and sports. It's worth having this boatride.

“The heart and soul of Stockholm”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

You can't miss Lake Malaren wherever you go in beautiful Stockholm. Go on a guided boat tour, go on an adventure in the Stockholm archipelago and just enjoy the great blue around you or go for a dip if it's summer.
