In Summer, our favourite Stockholm family day out is to take a trip out to one of the many islands in the Stockholm Archipelago. In the Archipelago you can enjoy swimming, kayak paddling, building sandcastles and bbq’ing. It’s pretty idyllic and something we could never have done if we still lived in the UK.

In the Winter, activities might seem limited but the Swedes are so outdoorsy that their favourite saying is “the weather is only as good as your clothing”. We spend our free-time making the most of the few hours of sun during the day. We do enjoy the Swedish mantra of “mys” which means to enjoy the simple things in life, friends, family, good food and warm drinks. Essentially, the Swedish version of “hygge”. Friday evenings in Sweden are known as Fredagsmys, a very important family ritual!!

The travel guide you can find on Little Bear Abroad here is a multi-season, “do it in a day” concept. Although, you could spend an entire day at any of these attractions depending on the speed, patience and stamina of the little feet that are with you!
