The story about the tour
Explore the rare species known as the hipster on this Segway expedition to the island of Södermalm. Known as the hipster, trendy and bohemian part of city centre, Södermalm is a destination within a destination, not to mention perfect for people watching, partying and second-hand shopping. Ride up hills you would never take on by foot as you discover Södermalm by Segway.
From Old Town, we aim for Fjällgatan – one of the former gallows, today a great city viewpoint. As you take your photos and stretch your legs, we’ll have a few stories to share about the old gallows and what you can see from “the heights of Söder.” It’s a hotspot for Instagrammers and photo-enthusiasts alike. Cruise to Vitabergsparken, a popular park for open-air theatre and locals to picnic in, via some of the last odes to the former working class who lived in this area. Red wooden houses, cosy cafés, and grand churches are all characteristic for Södermalm.
Zigzagging through Södermalm, you’ll experience how Segway-friendly the area is with its park paths and smaller roads. Family-friendly, laid back, and popular eateries intertwined with historical locations, the largest island in Stockholm offers something for everyone.
No doubt by the end you’ll have found an area, café, boutique or two that you’ll want to return to after the tour. We’ll be happy to add our recommendations too!
