Solving puzzles in an escape room? See the city from above in a hot air balloon? Create beautiful works of art in ceramics? Or become an expert on hops and malt? Stockholm offers endless possibilities for those in the mood for an activity. Maybe something that’s been on your bucket list for a long time.

Are you looking for the most delicious experience Stockholm has to offer? A culinary taste adventure where the menu is several kilometers long? Then you should try Moveat, where you and your party can discover and try different restaurants around the city. Think bar crawl – but with restaurants. During the activity, you visit 5-8 places, ranging from exciting restaurants and delicious delis to cozy wine bars and unique hideaways. To help you find your way, you have the Moveat app, and at each stop, you get to enjoy a lovely taste experience.

Moveat is a perfect activity to do with your group of friends, family, date, or colleagues. You get to eat, socialize and move while discovering new flavors and places. Can it get any better? The food activities are themed (e.g. a neighborhood, a specific beer, or a market hall) and are divided into three concepts. Choose from the Moveat Original concept, which is for a specific day, the Moveat Limited concept, which is for a specific day but offers more unique exclusive events, or the Moveat Anytime concept, which is for any day. Check the website to see upcoming events.


Questrooms VR escape room
Go on a thrilling adventure in Stockholm’s first VR escape room at Questrooms

Being locked in a room where you have to solve mysteries, riddles, and puzzles to get out while a clock is ticking steadily toward zero can give anyone jittery feelings. That thrilling experience is exactly what you’ll get at Questrooms, an escape room in Stockholm that you’ll find near Medborgarplatsen in Södermalm. When they started in 2014, they were Sweden’s first escape game, so Questrooms certainly knows what a great escape room should look like.

There are several rooms with varying escape games. How about escaping from the Russian mafia, time traveling, adventuring in the jungle, or experiencing a creepy chase in a horror-filled Horror Escape? There are also escape rooms for children (8-12 years old), and several rooms can be adapted for younger participants with more clues, etc. (perhaps the next children’s party?). Everyone should be able to join the fun. And if you want to try the virtual world, Questrooms has launched Stockholm’s first VR escape room with action-packed adventures where you can choose anything from Indiana Jones to Halloween themes.

Dalcon Archipelago

Join Dalcon for a high-speed adventure in the archipelago!

Breathtaking speed. The wind in your hair. Amazing nature settings. That’s part of the experience when you go on a RIB boat trip with Dalcon Archipelago. Their boats take you and your party wherever you want in the Stockholm archipelago. It can be anything from simple transport to Grinda for a day trip to a conference trip with the whole company at Sandhamn. Or why not an overnight stay with a wilderness guide in the archipelago?

The safe and robust RIB boats depart from Beckholmen in Djurgården and accommodate 10 or 12 passengers. The high speed, jumping on waves, and proximity to islands and islets you experience is obviously incredible, but adrenaline and excitement are not the main focus. Instead, the goal of Dalcon Archipelago is to provide fast, relaxing, and safe transportation to your archipelago destination. They’re also happy to help plan and organize other activities in connection with the RIB boat transport if you wish. Among other things, they can offer packages for those who go on a training trip or explore the wilderness of the archipelago.

Drejverkstaden was founded to be an inspiring place for people curious about clay, turning, and creation. It offers pottery courses (daytime, evenings, or weekends) at different levels of difficulty for beginners and more experienced potters. Everyone is welcome. Come alone or bring a friend and try a new hobby. Or why not invite your work colleagues for a creative and team-building pottery class? For those who are past the beginner stage in ceramics and want to improve their skills further, Drejverkstaden regularly invites talented guest lecturers to give workshops.

Hot air balloon rides

Ballongflyg Stockholm

Fancy some breathtaking views of the city? Go on a hot balloon ride

Do you dream of hovering above the Swedish capital with stunning views in all directions? Flying a hot air balloon over Stockholm can make your dream come true. There are several companies offering flights that will take you on a real high-flying experience in Stockholm, where you’ll slowly float at an altitude of around 300 meters and calmly take in all the beauty down on the ground – from nature to iconic buildings.

Most companies have offered hot air balloon rides for many years. They can take parties of 2 to 22 people, but between 6 and 12 people are the most common. In other words, it’s perfect for bringing your family or friends on an exciting adventure. Under the guidance of a professional balloon pilot, you will fly a distance of 8-15 km, and the experience often ends with the traditional champagne toast for newly inaugurated balloonists. In addition, you’ll get a nice diploma as a souvenir. You can fly hot air balloons all year round, summer or winter, so go ahead and find your company here.


Stockholm has plenty of bars, but probably no one else can offer such a unique experience as Icebar. It’s the world’s first permanent ice bar, and you’ll find this bar, undoubtedly the city’s coldest, at Hotel C in central Stockholm. Since its opening in 2002, the ice bar has been a popular attraction for both tourists and Stockholmers who want a taste of the Arctic cold. Because it’s definitely cold here. More specifically, -5°C (23°F).

Icebar is made of ice – and even the glasses you’re served drinks in are made of ice. The artistically designed interior is sculpted from 40 tons of natural ice from the river Torneälven and is spectacular, to say the least. Moreover, it’s torn down and rebuilt every year, always with a new theme. The entrance fee includes a 45-minute visit and a drink (children are also welcome and served a colorful non-alcoholic drink). All visitors can borrow a thermal cape and a pair of gloves to keep warm.

Icebar delivers a memorable experience, whatever the occasion. Gather your friends for a great after-work hangout, bring your colleagues for dinner (yes, there’s actually hot food), or celebrate something special with your loved one. The sky is the limit. Welcome to a lightning visit to northern Sweden’s polar magic in the middle of the capital – a fantastic mix of wow and brr.

Vasaplan 4, Norrmalm/City


No list of experiences in Stockholm is complete without a museum dedicated to experiences. You’ll find Upplevelsemuseet on the lower level of the Globen shopping mall, and their aim is that both children and adults should have fun when they go to a museum. You shouldn’t just look and read about things but actually experience them – feel, smell, taste, and try.

Try more than 50 things you’ve never experienced before. Dipping your finger in liquid metal, holding an African giant snail, smelling an angry skunk, tasting fried crickets, and challenging your fear of heights in VR are just a few examples. At Upplevelsemuseet, the whole family and all ages can have fun together – younger children, teenagers, mum, dad, grandad, and grandma. A perfect activity for weekends or holidays, and you’re promised a different experience, to say the least.

Arenaslingan 3A, Johanneshov

Candlelight Concerts

Enjoy a classical concert with more than 2,000 candles

Imagine the light from 2,000+ candles (don’t worry they’re LED) fluttering in a beautiful, dramatic space with great acoustics e.g an old cathedral, gallery or a historical landmark. In this beautiful sett ing you can experience talented classical local musicians playing Vivaldi, Chopin, or Beethoven, but also a more modern approach of tribute concerts to great musicians/bands such as Queen, Coldplay, Taylor Swift or even Abba.

A candlelight concert is just 60 minutes, perfect for first-time classical performance goers, but also a great idea to squeeze in before a nice dinner out and make the evening just that little bit more extra. Fever has succeeded in bringing classical music to a brand new audience and bridging the gap between the older and younger generations, with 70% of these candlelight concert goers under the age of 40.
