Book your flights to Stockholm now and enjoy a Scandinavian adventure of your own.
Although Stockholm makes a great year-round destination, your experience of the city will be very different depending on when you visit.
Book cheap flights to Stockholm in the summer and you’ll be able to experience exceptionally long days, warm weather and a choice of outdoor activities. Go swimming or kayaking around the city’s lakes and rivers, sunbathe on deserted beaches and catch a ferry to one of Stockholm’s many islands.
Fly to Stockholm in the winter, however, and things will be very different. Days are short, nights long and temperatures regularly plummet below zero. If you’re looking for a bit of festive fun, or if you enjoy exploring snow-covered cities, a winter visit may well suit you down to the ground.
As Stockholm doesn’t really have a peak season, flights to the city are reasonably priced throughout the year. Flights to Stockholm during the summer holidays can be a little more expensive, however if you use Expedia to search for the best deals you should still be able to find affordable flights, even in July and August.
Expedia searches through a wide choice of airlines to find the best deals for your trip. Use the ‘Advanced Options’ to narrow your search down to refundable flights or to select the airlines you’d prefer to fly with. You can narrow your selection down further using the filters on the left-hand side of the results page.
There are a number of airlines offering direct and indirect connections between Stockholm and the UK.
As you’d expect from a Scandinavian city, Stockholm is easy to navigate both on foot and by public transport. Trams, trains, ferries, buses and an underground network connect many of the city’s islands and neighbourhoods, making it easy to explore every corner of Stockholm.
If you’re feeling energetic, you can also rent a bike and discover the city on two wheels.
Stockholm’s most famous attractions is Gamla Stan, the city’s Old Town. Located on its very own island, this atmospheric area is made up of cobbled streets, historic buildings and pretty squares. Spend an afternoon exploring the restaurants and shops that line the streets of Gamla Stan or enjoy a bit of people watching from one the neighbourhood’s pavement cafes.
Another must-see attraction is the Vasa Museum which is home to the incredible Vasa battleship. After sinking on its maiden voyage in 1628, the ornate ship was raised from the water in 1961 and restored to its former glory.
