“Hammarby sjöstad allows for a fun and inspiring run between the buildings and along scenic water canals, only a block away from the capital city pulse. Only a few more km’s further up the canal, your urban surroundings transform into Scandinavian wilderness where all you can hear are yourself and the birds on your run.”
“On the outskirts Stockholm you find an alpine ski-slope very near the city. In the winters you can go skiing, but that’s not why I’m there. I love to take on the grueling climb the hill offers.
