Best Tourist Experience in Stockholm?

Bears at Skansen- potential winners?
For the fourth year in a row the Swedish Travel and Tourism Union (Rese- och Turistnäringen i Sverige) will be giving an award for the "Best Experience in Sweden". 30 travel agents and tour operators from 8 countries decide first on the nominees and then choose an eventual winner. Past winners have been the Ice Hotel in Jukkusjärvi, the Vasa Museum in Stockholm and the Göta Canal Steamship Company. The nominees for the 2011 prize have been announced and several are from Stockholm:
  1. Fotografiska- the photography museum
  2. Skansen- outdoor cultural museum & zoo
  3. Junibacken- Astrid Lindgren theme park for children
  4. Stockholm Adventures- travel company specializing in nature experiences
Four worthy and diverse nominees in my opinion! So take the opportunity to try these experiences while you are in Stockholm... and see if you agree when the winner is announced in October.
If you are curious about the nominees this year outside of Stockholm, they are... the hiking trail Kungsleden, Astrid Lindgren's World, Selma Spa and the Kosta Boda Art Hotel.
