Venice of the North
Though by no means a bargain destination, Stockholm is a popular stop for backpackers. Stockholm’s proximity to wonderful nature and exotic Nordic location make it an interesting and worthwhile backpacking holiday destination. Hostels are not particularly cheap, but generally very clean, comfortable, affordable, and many are centrally located. Gamla Stan is great for walking around, and the cafes, bars and laid back bohemian vibe of Södermalm are quite backpacker friendly. The nearby Stockholm Archipelago is recommended for those backpackers who want to add a bit of unspoiled nature to their holiday.
