Christmas Smörgåsbord at Sea

I have blogged earlier about the traditional Christmas smörgåsbord, called julbord, now available in restaurants throughout Sweden. Yesterday I was invited by the sightseeing company Strömma to the season premiere of their combination julbord and boat excursion. It was delicious and a great idea for locals and visitors to Stockholm alike. Not only do you get to try traditional and seasonal Swedish cuisine, but you also get to enjoy a nice boat ride (either in the inner archipelago, Lake Mälaren or Stockholm harbor) on one one of their historic and refitted ships. Another great thing about Strömma is their flexibility... seven of their ships will be serving julbord this season of different variations. Classic, seafood, "with a twist" and Swedish/American are some of the different themes. You also have the option of enjoying the julbord for lunch, in the afternoon or in the evening... there is even a full day trip to the Christmas market on the island of Utö with julbord served on the way back to the city. As you can see, there is something for everyone!

If you are staying at the Rival Hotel, contact me directly and I can help you with making a reservation. Otherwise contact your hotel or visit Strömma's website (linked here and above) for more information and to make a reservation.
