Description

Enjoy a tour of Stockholm by land and water on an amphibious bus tour. Learn about the history of the city from a variety of perspectives, seeing notable landmarks like Gröna Lund, the Royal Palace, and the Royal Island of Djurgården Once everyone is aboard, head toward the Royal Theatre. Your guide will give a short introduction about the bus before switching focus to the sights. Drive along the fashionable street of Birger Jarl before landing at the nightclub mecca of Stureplan. Continue to the Royal Library, see the 1912 Olympic stadium, and turn into the street Karlavägen to arrive at the beautiful area of Östermalm. Suddenly the tarmac beneath you turns to gravel and now the real fun begins, it is time for the bus to get wet. Hold on to your phones and cameras and prepare for some butterflies in your stomach. The music gets louder and a big splash of water hits the windscreen. Before you know it, you are floating. After a couple of minutes of cruising on the water, you will also hear the story behind the Royal Island of Djurgården. Pass the Vasa museum and Sweden’s oldest amusement park Gröna Lund. Get your camera ready for a postcard-like view of Stockholm. The striking Old Town facades lie ahead, where the buildings date back to the 16th-century. In the middle are the German church and Stockholm city hall, which is a famous symbol of Stockholm with the three golden crowns mounted on top. Sail alongside the shore of Södermalm, the biggest of the 14 islands that constitute Stockholm. Cruise around the island of Skeppsholmen and get a great view of the Royal Palace, which is one of the biggest palaces in Europe. See the 19th-century ship Af Chapman docked on the island of Skeppsholmen, which was once Stockholm's naval station. Learn about the royal family and also how Sweden became the country that it is today. Hear how one of the poorest countries in Europe become a thriving industrial nation with a capital now considered to be Europe’s equivalent to silicon valley. Feel the current from Sweden’s third biggest lake pushing fresh clean water into the Baltic Sea. Further ahead, get a great panoramic view of Strandvägen, which is probably the most exclusive address in Scandinavia. Pass the ship of the world’s strongest little girl, Pippi Longstocking. It is time to return to dry land. The engine roars for a couple of seconds as the captain hits the throttle to push the bus back to land. Drive towards the starting point, passing the birthplace of the world-famous psychological phenomenon of Stockholm syndrome. Also pass the oldest building in the city and the oldest park in Stockholm, which once belonged to the royal family. To complete your tour, get a photo with the singing captain.
