Stockholm: The Nordic Food Walk

1. Stockholm: The Nordic Food Walk

Starting in the cozy, quaint confines of the classic Östermalmshallen, the old market hall of Stockholm, you’ll enjoy samples of local cheeses and meats, your first tastes on the tour. From here on your 4-hour tour, you’ll walk with your guide through the most modern areas of the city, sampling the best of healthy and classical foods with a twist. At Stockholm’s food market, you’ll sit down with a lunch plate filled with delectable Swedish seafood. No visit to Stockholm is complete without sampling this local specialty! After lunch it’s time for the sweets! In the very heart of the city you'll visit a local chocolate store, where the owners’ romantic story adds an even sweeter flavor to the locally made gourmet chocolate. Hötorgshallen, yet another of the city’s food markets, is also on the route. Stop for a chance to learn about the historical importance of the market and the shops, and for a few quick tastings as well. Continue with your guide to Gamla Stan, or Old Town, where you’ll admire some of Stockholm’s original houses. Stop at a tiny factory that makes polkagris, the most traditional of all Swedish candies. Your final stop is for coffee in a romantic courtyard, where you can enjoy the best cinnamon rolls in town.

Stockholm: Guided Fika Tour

2. Stockholm: Guided Fika Tour

Going for a fika at a “fik” is by far one of the most Swedish things one can ever do. Fika basically means to meet up for a coffee and a piece of cake or pastry, and a fik is slang for a café, bakery, or pastry shop. Sweden enjoys a highly developed culture when it comes to baked goods, and everywhere in Stockholm you’ll find cafés and cake shops brimming with atmosphere, character, and quality. Throughout this tour you will be taken to explore some of the best cafés this city has to offer. From top-class cafés and award-winning bakeries, to mouthwatering and Instagram-friendly dishes, you will get to taste your way through Stockholm whilst learning all about this treasured tradition.

You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Start by taking in some of the top attractions of the old town. Continue by getting familiar with the neighborhood where you’re staying. Hear about the best places to eat and shop and learn the easiest ways to get around. See some of the top attractions and hear about more that you can visit on your own after the tour. You will have the option of taking public transportation or a taxi to get around the city. Please contact the supplier if you’d like a private car included in the tour.

Valentina was a bright, friendly spirit who could connect to everyone on her tour. She navigated our picky eaters well. Really enjoyed the smoked moose, bear jerky, and smoked reindeer. There is some walking but the pace was nice and the route helped to orient ourselves in central Stockholm. Highly recommend her!

The tour with Dara as our guide was fantastic. She explained so many details, about the market halls and the typical Swedish tastings. And Dara also explained a lot about the history of Stockholm and Sweden as well as the buildings and sights along the way. Just great what Dara knew.

This was such an enjoyable tour! Fritz was an excellent guide. Very engaging and personable. We loved every bit of the walking, eating, and information given. Would highly recommend this experience.

Excellent value for money on this tour. At the same time a small city tour and what the people of Stockholm love so much. food wise

Enjoyable time learning about Stockholm and their favorite foods.
