Oh, the places you’ll go. Today, that place so happens to be historic Uppsala city. You’ll take a jaunt on the train with one of our local Stockholm hosts then spend the day exploring!

You’ll visit the oldest Gothic cathedral in Scandinavia (what a title) and uncover Uppsala’s Viking and medieval roots.

You could go one step further (alright a few steps, and also a short bus ride) to Gamla Uppsala, which is the ancient pagan part of the city, where you can still see the Viking royal burial mounds.

You’ll visit hidden gems as well as some not so hidden gems, like the university which was founded in 1477 and maybe pop into a museum or gallery that takes your fancy, where you can learn more about Swedish culture.

When it’s time for lunch, which it inevitably will be, let your host know if you’re in the mood for something Swedish or you want to go more international, and they’ll take you to a cafe, market or restaurant to suit.

And of course, we’d never let you leave without experiencing fika - you’ll cosy up in a coffee shop and enjoy this Swedish past-time of making time for coffee, cakes and conversation.

If only all of our past-times involved cake.
