What to expect

Storforsen is Europe's largest undeveloped rapids and it is an incredible experience any time of the year. During the summer season Storforsen really comes to life and you'll be able to feel the power of the rushing water as you walk nearby.

Accompanied by a private guide, you will start your journey at the base of the rapids and head up to explore the many paths and walkways around the nature reserve, taking in the sights and sounds of the powerful rapids.

You will make a stop at the Storforsen gift shop, and as you browse for locally crafted souvenirs your guide will build a fire, cook a small meal over the open fire and treat you to some beverages so you can experience a Swedish "fika".

You will also have the opportunity to swim and play in the many freshwater ponds that flow through the nature reserve. Once you've had your fill you will continue to explore and make your way back to the starting point.

    The Vasa Museum entrance tickets

    The Vasa Museum is home to the royal flagship Vasa. Built to fight the kingdom of Poland, Vasa sank in 1628 on its maiden voyage in Stockholm harbor before it could ever engage another ship. 333 years later it was successfully raised, preserved, and restored by Swedish divers and scientists. The Vasa Museum, on the island of Djurgården in Stockholm, displays the world's only intact 17th-century warship.
