Over the Stockholm rooftops
Rooftops, surfboards and climbing chalk. That is the catchword for this episode. Louise is guided through Stockholm’s Gamla Stan in a slightly unusual way. Louise makes her way under her own steam in Karlsbergskanalen and then climbing up Häggstaklippan.
Roof ridge walk in the Old Town
Stockholm is a mix of sweet and salt, as you know. But also metal, actually. In any case, you can choose this unusual guided tour through Stockholm’s Old Town. Despite reliable safety equipment, you get butterflies in your stomach as you learn lots about the royal capital – an unbacked winner and difficult-to-beat combination.
Standup Paddleboarding in Stockholm city
The fact that Stockholm consists of islands is known to most. But that the water that separates them is a perfect way to discover the city may not be as obvious. Stand Up Paddle Boarding, or SUP, as it is known for short, is a nice and relaxing way to make your way along the water and something almost everyone can manage.
Crag climbing at Häggstaklippan
Häggsta or Häggstaklippan is a popular, up to 40 m high, cliff face in the Municipality of Huddinge. There are more than 100 climbing trails varying in difficulty, and it has been a popular place for Stockholm’s climbers since climbing began here in the 1930s.
