Stockholm: Are 8 nights too many?

Jump to last reply

We had originally planned on 2 nights in Visby (Gotland) to supplement our time in Stockholm but found out that there is a big political event there when we would be going, so we scratched that from the itinerary. That leaves us 8 nights in Sweden. The final one, we will spend at an airport hotel to catch an early flight, giving us 7 nights in Stockholm or elsewhere.

Is there another small town or rural area nearby that would be worth doing a day trip or overnight? Will we find plenty to do in Stockholm for a week? My list includes Skansen, ABBA Museum, Vasa Museum, Drottningholm Palace, Gamla Stan. I guess we'll be able to include a lot more, so I will go back and "mine" the guidebooks in Stockholm but would appreciate any recommendations for a smaller town/village to visit?

Also, is there an archipelago tour that you can recommend? Should we take time from Stockholm to go north, or is that not a good use of time? What about Helsinki?

GIven our plans so far, where is the best area to stay? Budget ~$400 a night. Are there any nice serviced apartments?
