Responsible travel in the time of COVID-19

Responsible travel in the time of COVID-19

Editor’s note – Our goal has always been to show you how to travel around Stockholm slowly, explore it on a deeper level, and connect with the city we all love.

For a site dedicated to sharing Stockholm to travelers who want to explore the city in more enriching ways, the COVID-19 pandemic has been challenging with travel to and from Sweden currently being restricted to only essential travel.

While we ponder the best ways to pivot some of our content in the interim until travel to Stockholm roars back to life again, we will be sharing more local stories, including interviews with some of the concierges in town, and more as we gear up for the travel industry to recover from a very difficult time.

Even though our site is also valuable to expatriates and residents, our main focus audience will continue to be those who want to travel to and explore Stockholm and its surroundings. If there are other types of resources you’d like us to provide, please drop me an email here.

New and existing contributors, we’re always open to new ideas when it comes to responsible travel around Stockholm with the ongoing pandemic as our continued backup for the foreseeable future. Please follow the incredible The Local Sweden for daily updates on the COVID-19 situation in Sweden.

Thank you all once again for your continued support of this passion project of love and please watch this space.
