Swedes love to ride their bikes, so let’s do like the Swedes and ride around the funky neighborhood of SoFo!
The 'South of Folkungagatan' district, warmly known as SoFo is an area of Stockholm aptly named for its own rendition of 'Bobo' culture. Bohemian Bourgeois. An up-and-coming neighborhood, SoFo has rejected the chain stores and typical tourist attractions in hopes of encouraging smaller boutiques and mom-and-pop businesses to open and flourish.
SoFo is also steeped in history, it has a vast array of beautiful architecture, and it's bursting with quirky cafes, bohemian shops and vintage boutiques. It’s got a fantastic energy about it, and there’s something intriguing to catch your eye wherever you look. It’s also full of hills, so there’s no better way to explore this island than by e-bike!
Södermalm was voted the ‘coolest’ neighborhood in Europe by Vogue magazine back in 2014, and anyone who visits will agree; it certainly does not lack character or charm! It also has some of the best views of the city. Your local guide will take you to the best photo ops for that insta-perfect shot, and you'll come away from this tour with plenty of great recommendations to go back and explore on your own.
