Our 24 Hours in Stockholm

We start the morning with a cup of coffee at Dropp Coffee or Johan & Nyström around Mariatorget, Södermalm. The sun is shining so we take the car and drive out of Stockholm city, listening to some new mixed tracks of LOKATT in the car. At Systrarna Delselius (Grisslinge Havsbad) we make a quick stop for takeaway coffee, sandwiches, and typical Swedish cinnamon buns. Afterwards we continue to beautiful Björnö (Ingarö) and Björkviks Havsbad for a swim. Here the ocean is fresh and a bit chilly but the cliffs are always warm. We spend some lazy hours there and afterwards we go to “Stockholms Louisiana” – Artipelag, to see a new exhibition, have lunch and go for a nice walk next to the water.

After this we take the car back home, have a nap and get changed for an evening in town. We meet up with friends to have a drink at Södra Bar (Södra Teatern) and enjoy the best views over Stockholm. Later we head to the other side of town (Östermalm) to see if we can get a table at Speceriet where they serve great Nordic food coming from local producers. After dinner we meet up with friends playing with their band at Debaser Strand. The night is still young and since we’re DJ-ing at Trädgården this evening, we head there early to have drinks with friends, then dance the night away to techno tunes. Later we’ll walk home in the midsummer light with the birds singing in the morning!

In wintertime we often go ice skating at Hellasgården where you can rent typical skates from Sweden called Långfärdsskridskor. We love snowboarding and outdoor activities so we might also go to Hammarbybacken, a hill in the middle of town, and after some rides,  have a hot chocolate at the top (bring your own) while enjoying the view.

If we need to relax we go to Nynäshamn, where they have a great old spa (Nynäshamns havsbad) perfect for a winter bath and a silent sauna while watching the ice freeze. Nynäshamn is also a good place for surfing during summer and autumn.

What else should we know about you?

We enjoy life and travelling a lot! But the ability to travel and explore different cultures also means great responsibility. We think it’s very important to respect people and nature. For us that means staying at local accommodations, eating as much vegetarian food as we can, and listening to the voices and stories of locals. Travelling does not have to be fancy or overdone. Less is more. The closer you come to living the life of the locals - the greater the experience.

Travelling is…

exciting, a great way to meet new people, experience cultures, and get a new perspective. Travelling needs to be more environmentally friendly.

Life is…

adventurous, funny, and relaxed.
