Today i would like to share the boat tour I done by boat the 15th of june, when my parents were here visiting. The sightseeing company  strömma offers a whole lot of possibilities for seeing Stockholm from the water ( just want to remind you all, that Stockholm is an unique city that is build up on 14 different sized islands).

Thats the boat used in the tour
We chose “under the bridges”, an almost 2 hours tour , that gets you mostly everywhere in the city center, passing through 15 of the most famous bridges of the city and seeing a whole lot of city sights.
The views are quite amazing, here is just a small example of what you can see while taking that tour.

Its possible to take that boat tour between april and september ( believe me, you wouldnt really want to sit in that boat in the winter with the frozen water), and it costs 220 sek ( about 28€/33 $) Children ages 6 to 11 pays just half price.

Boats departs every hour between 10 and 19pm from Strömkajen , just in front of the Grand Hôtel.
