  1. https://auroraskystation.se/ https://www.svenskaturistforeningen.se/aktiviteter/abisko-aurora-sky-station-2/ However you have to be aware that going by the arranged top tour is quite pricey and there is not guarantee of northern lights. I've read though that you can buy non tour tickets for the ski lift that goes up which is cheaper.
  2. The Hop On Hop off doesn't go that far out. Your ship will be at Arendal quay or Skandiahamnen quaywhich is quite far out from the city centre. HoHo map: https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1VYwwmL9T4kbA0RgVRhMV-ZCL9rPjLuCs&ll=57.700515314153336%2C11.911195082449648&z=14 I guess it would a decent way to see Göteborg but should be combined with a boat sightseeing tour.
  3. Some info here: I've also stayed at the Radisson Blue Royal Viking next to the central station and it was a nice hotel (5 star) but also much pricier (due to location). There is also a Radisson hotel at Nybroviken (5 star hotel Radisson Collection, Strand Hotel, Stockholm) but I haven't stayed there yet. That hotel has a very nice view of Nybroviken and strandvägen. Then there is the Scandic Klara (4 star hotel) which is very central. Hotel Kung Carl and Elite Hotel Stockholm Plaza are 4-star hotels. If you want something different perhaps Hotell Skeppsholmen would be of intere
  4. Vasa museum will open again on Wednesday next week.
  5. I can only second what trosebery says about cruises that berths in Nynäshamn and not in Stockholm. First of all you will miss the sail in and sail out through the archipelago and secondly you are "locked in to" either use the commuter train or use a ship organized transport. When you berth in central Stockholm you will have a much bigger freedom to do what you want and choose what transport to use. If you berth at Stadsgården you can even walk back to the ship via a very scenic route via Katarinavägen/Fjällgatan.
  6. As dogs says, best method of transport depends on where your ship will berth. Hoho-boats might work if you are at Stadsgården but otherwise not and they are doing their routes clockwise so from Vasa to Gamla Stan walking to Allmänna Gränd and use Djurgårdsfärjan from there might be just as quick or quicker then waiting for a HoHo boat at Vasa.
  7. See this post: I've stayed at Elite Hotels Stockholm Plaza and at Kung Carl. Both are very nice hotels. When stayed at Kung Carl there was a big celebrity party going on so it wasn't that calm and it's also close to the party area Stureplan. Sheraton is indeed part of the Marriot chain but is still called Sheraton Hotel Stockholm.
  8. Here is one with Royal Carribean, starts in Copenhagen and ends in Stockholm. https://www.royalcaribbean.com/cruises/itinerary/10-night-ultimate-scandinavia-russia-from-stockholm-on-adventure/AD10CPH-2909958156?sail-date=2021-06-17&currency=USD&country=USA
  9. Aida does. https://aida.de/finden/VI10210705/PREMIUM
  10. Today is 13th May and about 100 km west of Stockholm we had very intense snowing while last week was warm enough for me to sit outside in a t-shirt and eat my lunch
  11. Not quite. While technically not a full lockdown there are lots of restrictions even if people are allowed to be outside and go to/from work. Gatherings larger then 50 people have been banned, sports event has been banned/cancelled, public events has been cancelled (like 1 May demonstrations). Museums are closed, people are being told to stay at home if possible, told not to travel anywhere (except for absolutely necessary trips). Restaurants are open but are legally required to separate guests/tables with several meters (if they don't comply authorities will close them down). Lots
  12. Yes, The Royal Palace in Stockholm is open for visits (or parts of it). https://www.royalpalaces.se/english.html https://www.royalpalaces.se/english/royal-palaces-and-sites/the-royal-palace.html
  13. I think it's too optimistic, possibly travel within Scandinavia or European Union will be allowed but full international travel might be a little too optimistic.
