City walks in Stockholm.

Explore the city through a walking tour.


Hi, my name is Stefan

I am the green guide and I organize sustainable city walks in and out of Stockholm.

I am passionate about sharing my knowledge and love for the city and how it has been developed through the centuries. City walks provide health and well-being for everyone. And opportunity for generations to meet. I want to create a safe environment where everyone feels at home. I use an oral narrative and I do show many pictures from the past.

The narrow winding cobblestone streets, with their buildings in so many different shades of gold, give Gamla Stan its unique character. Even now cellar vaults and frescoes from the Middle Ages can be found behind the visible facades, and on snowy winter days, the district feels like something from a storybook.

Stockholm in a nutshell - 3 hours

Are you coming to Stockholm for the first time? Do you want to include the most important highlights on just one excursion? Stockholm in a nutshell gives you a city walk in old town of Stockholm, where you will see the most famous sights such as the Royal Palace and enter the cathedral Storkyrkan. You will walk on cobbled stones to explore the narrowest alley Mårten Trotsig as well as many other alleys. You will be able to admire the statue of St George and the Dragon. Before leaving the Old town, you will also have time to enjoy a typical Swedish fika (café and a cinnamon bun or similar). By boat we travel to Royal Djurgården. A stroll in the pretty area of Djurgårdsstaden with its many adorable wooden houses and then a visit the incredible Vasa Museum. After 333 years at the bottom, this mighty warship was salvaged and the journey continued. Today, Vasa is the world's best-preserved 17th-century ship. Inside the museum you will receive a guided tour of 30 minutes, before being given time on your own. You can return back to the city when you prefer, as you will be given a 24 hours ticket.

Naturewalk with Forest-bathing 2,5 hours

Leave the stressful everyday life, relax and unwind with a mentally refreshing forest bath. This is the Scandinavian way of Shinrin-yoku. Reload with green forest energy. After the tour we gather for a Swedish forest-fika (a light refreshment). No previous knowledge required.


After a short walk we admire the area from a cliff and then in to the pine forest of Årsta. We will move very slowly and focus on the present.


I recommend switching off mobile just during the forest bath itself, so that you do not become interrupted and unfocused. We move too little and stress too much. Stress generates sick leave, but a short time in nature can reduce stress levels significantly. Many testify that in nature they can relax, move unpretentiously and feel that they are part of something bigger.


Treat yourself to the luxury of taking it easy for once. You will learn to focus on your feelings and sensory experiences and just be. It is extremely unusual experience. With a guide, you can let go of control, which many find liberating. We humans are social animals. Many people just appreciate going out in groups. Many people instinctively feel that they feel good in nature. I help you find new places, or look at familiar places with new eyes. You get tips on exercises you can do on your own.
