When I was in Stockholm I found a great wildlife safari just two hours from Stockholm! On one moose safari we saw about 10 moose! It was really great.

This is a perfect place for sea-kayaking in the south part of Stockholm archipelago. A lot of beautiful islands where you can camp. You can borrow a map of the area and get suggestions and help were to kayak and where to camp.

Langholmen is one of the many islands on which Stockholm is built. It used to be a prison but ceased operation in 1975. Now the old buildings (the earliest dating back to mid-18th century) house a hostel and café.
Langholmen is quite small and very beautiful, with a beach on the north side, where there are also cliff areas which are very suitable for sunbathing and swimming. For younger travellers, this is one of the coolest places to go in the wee hours when bars and clubs are closing down - a lot of young locals come here for a nightcap and a sunrise swim before going home (around midsummer the sun goes up around 3.30am-4.00am, which means that you'll have a lovely, sunny swim in the midle of a city still sleeping). Sometimes spontaneous parties occur on these occasions and they are not to be missed. In the daytime it's a lovely area for walks, recreation and sunbathing. This is a well-kept secret that is very popular with the locals (I lived in Stockholm from the age of eight to 23 so consider myself an insider).
The easiest way is to get the tube to Hornstull or to take the no. 3 bus and walk from there (approximately a 10-minute walk).
A boat trip out to the archipelago is a fantasic day trip if you're here for a few days. The trip alone is great fun, on board old-fashioned steam boats, but the islands are stunning. You will have whole meadows, sandy coves and rocks to bask on all to yourself, and if you’re brave the water’s cold but invigorating. Grinda is a lovely small island, with the trip taking about an hour and stopping at Vaxholm on the way there and back.
Wolverine feeding time was amazing, as was the fish broth by the lake for the humans.
Skansen is situated on the island of Djurgarden. It a pleasant walk from the city centre along the waterfront, or from the Central Station bus 47 goes there or bus 44 goes via Tekniska hogskolan and Karlaplan.
The heritage trams (route 7) from Norrmalmstorg or Nybroplan run on weekends from March to mid-December and throughout the summer.
