*
SUMMER FUN * THE VIKINGS OF BIRKA * ICE AGE

After a blockbuster weekend of activities ranging from the start-studded Rihanna show, to the calmer paddle down the canals and estuaries of this beautiful city, we return with a new and varied selection of ideas to get on board with this weekend. Sit back, enjoy and let your eyes feast upon our choices and get that planner close by for another fun-filled, enjoyable time courtesy of us.


 

FOOD
KÄRLEKSBAREN | BOCKHOLMEN
8/7

As far as restaurants go, and I may be very biased in this decision, this is arguably the best restaurant I have been to in Stockholm. Whilst the main part delivers a palate exploding dish, we are going to focus on the incredible grill buffet served in the outdoor “kärleksbaren”. Beautiful situated on the edge of the water, the outdoor bar boasts a scrumptious array of food ranging from succulent meats, to fresh fish dishes and vibrant salads. Each ingredient is cooked with care but the fantastic chefs and each ingredient is full of flavour. Served with an assortment of sauces, your homemade plate is there to be refilled as many times as you desire, and at an exceptionally reasonable price. Finish the meal off with a cocktail or two, soak in the scenery and the chattering atmosphere whilst you satisfyingly unbutton the top button on your shorts and make sure the enjoy every second of this beautiful outdoor “secondary” restaurant.

FILM
ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE | SF BIO
8/7

Sid, Manny and Diego are once again re-united to bring people of all ages the latest instalment in the Ice Age collection. Acclaimed as one of the greatest movie collections of all time, the three unlikeliest of friends are brought together once more are sent on an adventure to escape the peril’s accidentally brought to their planet earth by Scrat’s never-ending pursuit of his acorn. On a Journey full of laughter, excitement and plenty of new friends, the trio travel through exotic and unchartered environments in the hopes this isn’t their final few days alive on Earth. This movie is fun for all ages and is a testament to the inner child within you wanting to break out and roll on the floor in laughter at another Ice Age masterpiece.

MUSIC
MONSTERS OF ROCK | FRIENDS ARENA
9/7

The famous “Monsters of Rock” is back once more to the Friends Arena, and with it comes to final appearance of Black Sabbath. Famous for headlining such bands as AC/DC, Van Halen and Def Leppard, this year sees Ozzy Osbourne and his Black Sabbath friends say their goodbyes to Sweden on their farewell tour. Not only that, but the day of rock also promises hard-hitting and pulsating performances from Gothenburg based “Bombus” internationally acclaimed “Volbeat” and rapidly rising “Rival Sons”. The day is expected to be a sell-out and it is no surprise with the array of talent on show. Time to get the neck muscles working and expect a day full of head-banging, heavy riffs and monster drumbeats that will live up to the name of this special annual event!

ACTIVITY
THE VIKINGS OF BIRKA | BJÖRKÖ
8/7-9/7

Take a chance to get back to your Swedish roots and experience Birka, historically Sweden’s first city. Take a casual walk though the historical landscape or explore the archaeological field and potentially discover and never-before seen artefact. On top of this, Birka is currently offering the fantastic opportunity for children to experience archaeology for themselves on a staged excavation on the final day (8/7) or speak to Viking craftsmen and watch them work in their trade (9/1). To add a cherry on top of the viking-filled cake, why not try your hand at viking archery!? Enjoyable for the whole family and an insightful and entertaining experience for children, take the family on a trip to Birka and soak up every moment!

ACTIVITY
SKYVIEW | GLOBE ARENA
10/7

We keep hitting you with unique ways to see this incredibly beautiful city, but SkyView still hold right to arguably the best way to get the scenic view of Stockholm. Take the 20 minute journey up along the roof of Stockholm’s famous Ericsson Globe and wonder at the 360 degree views from the summit. Marvel at the sights to behold and share the memory with family or friends in the glass gondolas. Get over that fear of heights, take a camera and snap to your hearts content as you scale the Globe for an original and outstanding viewpoint that stands you on the top of Stockholm as the king or queen of scenic tours!
