Full description
It is common knowledge that Swedes prefer not to translate the word "fika", for fear of the word losing its significance and becoming a mere coffee break. It is one of the first words visitors learn when visiting Sweden, and throughout this tour your guide will indulge you in all its happenings as you visit some of the most popular fika locations of Stockholm.

Fika is much more than having a coffee - it is a social phenomenon. Swedes consider it a legitimate reason to set aside a moment for quality time. Fika can happen at any time from morning through evening, and can be savored at home, work, or in a café. It can also be with colleagues, family, friends, or someone you are trying to get to know.

The various delicacies savored during fika are extremely varied, and throughout this tour your guide introduces you to the best of them. It is a tradition observed frequently, preferably several times a day, which you will become well acquainted with throughout this social tour through central Stockholm.
