This post provides details about each of the tourist passes available in Stockholm and how these services can save you a lot of money.
We include information about prices, how to use the pass, and more.
There are currently two different tourist passes available in Stockholm, and they each provide discounts on a variety of popular attractions and activities in the city.
This overview provides an explanation of how these services work, how much you can expect to save, and the best way to use them to save money.
Each pass includes admission to dozens of different activities for a specific amount of time (1, 2, 3, 5 or 7 days).
The way it works is that you’ll pay one flat price for the service and every attraction included will be covered by the pass.
Depending on how you use a tourist pass, you can save up to 50% off general admission prices. In order to get the most out of it, you’ll have to use it as much as possible while it’s valid.
Although there are some pretty expensive activities included with these services, it is important to note that you’ll need to use this pass for at least 3-4 attractions in order to start saving money.
What this means is that these tourist passes are best for people who plan on seeing and doing a lot of different things during their visit to Stockholm.
These passes typically include at least one bus tour, one boat tour, famous landmarks, and several interesting museums.
Each service is available either as a physical pass or a mobile pass, which means you can actually just download their app onto your mobile phone and use it as your pass to get into each attraction included.
All-inclusive passes must be used on consecutive days after they have been validated.
If you’re traveling to Stockholm from a foreign country, you may not be familiar with the form of currency used in this city – the Swedish Krona.
While conversion rates can fluctuate quite a bit, this guide should be a useful way to figure out how much everything costs.
One SEK (Swedish Krona) is equal to the following values in other popular currencies:
This is probably the most popular tourist pass in Stockholm.
With over 60+ activities included, this service is perfect for anyone who plans to experience as much as possible while visiting this city.
The Stockholm Pass is available for 1, 2, 3, or 5 days at a time, and it must be used during consecutive days. The pass can be validated at any time within one year from the purchase date.
In addition to all the attractions you can visit with this pass, you can also add a travel card to your pass which provides unlimited rides on public transportation throughout the city.
Here are a few of the more notable and popular activities you can enjoy with this pass:
As you can see, this service costs less per day when you purchase either a 2, 3 or 5-day pass.
It’s also easier to take advantage of as many attractions as possible with a pass that lasts longer than one day.
Although some of the included activities can cost as much as SEK 560, it’s important to note that most of them are between SEK 100-200 for admission on average.
As such, visitors who are interested in either a boat or bus tour will probably get the most out of this pass, because those are the most valuable activities offered.
Here’s an example itinerary (3-Day Pass) to give you an idea of how you might use the Stockholm Pass to save some money:
Total Value: SEK 2304
Total Price: SEK 1250
Total Savings: SEK 1054 (about 46% off)
No matter which pass you get (1, 2, 3, or 5 days), it will be important to enjoy at least 3-4 attractions each day to get a good value out of the service.
We recommend this pass for anyone who plans to enjoy multiple activities every day of their trip.
This pass includes a lot of tours and museums, so it’s great for visitors who want to learn about Stockholm’s history and culture.
As with their competitors, this company also offers an all-inclusive pass which provides access to dozens of attractions for a set amount of time.
The main difference between these two services is that iVenture is currently offering one additional pass option with 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 day passes.
Unlike the Stockholm Pass, this card will only be valid for 6 months after purchase, so you’ll have less time to decide when to start using it.
The Stockholm iVenture Card does not include the option to add a travel card, but you can get one separately if you want.
It’s also important to note that this pass does not include as many activities. With only 21 to choose from, it may be more difficult to get value out of this service.
Here are some of the more popular tours and attractions included with the Stockholm iVenture Card:
The first major thing to note here is that the Stockholm iVenture Card definitely doesn’t have as many high-value attractions as their competitors.
That said, prices for this pass are a bit less expensive, so it might be a good alternative if you can manage to get a lot of use out of the service.
Although there aren’t as many activities included, the iVenture Card does have a few attractions that aren’t on the Stockholm Pass such as the Cosmonova and Tekniska Museet.
As with their competition, you’ll spend less per day by getting a multi-day pass rather than just a one day pass.
However, with fewer activities to enjoy, you may find that you run out of things to do before your pass ends.
Even though it’s nice that they offer the option for a 7-day pass, the reality is that you could probably do almost everything in 5 days if you pushed your plans to the limit.
Despite these issues, this example itinerary (3-Day Pass) will provide a look at how you can use the Stockholm iVenture Card to save money:
Total Value: SEK 2119
Total Price: SEK 1045
Total Savings: SEK 1074 (about 51% off)
As you can see, it’s still possible to save quite a bit of money with this tourist pass. The only thing to keep in mind is that you’ll save the most by enjoying as many activities as possible in a short amount of time.
Despite the fact that the Stockholm iVenture Card is available as a 7-day pass, we recommend using either the 3-day or 5-day pass instead, as there aren’t enough attractions included to warrant getting the longer option.
With access to locations such as the Tekniska Museet, Cosmonova and Bergrummet Toys & Comics museum, this pass could be a great option for families.
Although this isn’t technically a tourist pass, you may want to consider picking up a travel card to make traveling around the city much easier.
A Stockholm travel card can be used on almost all public transport throughout the city including bus, train, tram, metro, and ferry.
The service is available for 1, 3, or 7 days at a time. Here are the prices for each option:
Discounted ticket prices are available for seniors (65 and older), students (with ID), and anyone 20 years of age or younger.
Anyone planning to be in Stockholm for a week or more should keep in mind that the 3 & 7-day travel cards are an excellent way to save some money on public transportation prices.
If you’re not interested in taking a cruise and you just want an easy way to get across the water, the ferries included on this travel card could be a great alternative to the hop-on-hop-off boat tours in Stockholm.
With so many different forms of public transport in the city, this is a great way to get around that won’t cost much at all.
Travel cards can be purchased with the Stockholm Pass, but there is no additional discount when you buy them that way – it’s just easier to buy both of them together than separately!
If you’re not interested in any of the tourist passes listed above, you may want to consider a combo package instead.
There are a few bus tour companies in Stockholm who provide deals on multiple activities when you purchase the tickets together.
This section provides details about how to save money with these bus tour combos.
Almost every Stockholm bus tour company offers a combination package that includes both their bus service and a boat tour.
These boat tours are usually hop-on-hop-off outings, allowing you to move around the city by water with ease and see all the most popular landmarks.
Panorama Sightseeing Bus & Boat Tour
City Sightseeing Bus & Boat Tour
Stockholm Red Buses & Boat Tour
Hop-on-Hop-off Green Bus & Boat Tour
In addition to their other deals, this company also offers a few additional combo packages you may want to consider.
These options include both their bus & boat tour and admission to popular attractions.
Hop-on-Hop-off Bus & Boat Tour + Viking Museum
Hop-on-Hop-off Bus & Boat Tour + Fotografiska
Hop-on-Hop-off Bus & Boat Tour + Skansen
