Beaches

The best bathing places in central Stockholm are on the island of Långholmen and at Rålambshov, at the end of Norr Mälarstrand. Both are grassy or rocky lakeside hideaways. Topless sunbathing is virtually mandatory.

Biking and Rollerblading

Stockholm is laced with bike paths, and bicycles can be taken on the commuter trains (except during peak traveling times) for excursions to the suburbs. The bike paths are also ideal for rollerblading. Daily bike rental starts at roughly SKr 220.

Rent-a-Bike. City and mountain bikes can be rented here; they start at SKr 220 a day. Strandv. at Kajplats 18, City, Stockholm, 114 56. 08/6607959. www.rentabike.se.
