Excursions in Sundsvall

Historical Rooftop Walk

Explore Sundsvall from two different perspectives during this panoramic, half-day sightseeing excursion on-foot and from the rooftops.


Sundsvall City, City Centre, Gustav Adolf Church

Depart the pier for the short drive to Sundsvall City, whose sawmill industry transformed it into Sweden's first major industrial hub. Built between the South and North mountains, the city of Sundsvall is situated in a magnificent and varied landscape on the coast of the Baltic Sea, and stretches into the Indalen Valley. Upon arrival, take a guided walking tour of the city centre. Along the way, learn about the Kingdom of Woods, the city's horrible fires and dragons, and why it's made of stone. In addition, pass by local highlights such as the beautiful Gustav Adolf Church.


Sundsvall City Rooftop Tour

Next, discover Sundsvall City from a distinctly different perspective during a Rooftop Tour, one of only two of its kind in the world. Buckle up in your safety harness and take your first steps along the narrow rooftop path. This is as close to the 1890s as one can walk in Sweden today. Along the way, take in a bird's-eye view of the magnificently well-preserved city centre, landmarks, and cityscapes below and in the distance. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.

Sundsvall City Centre, Walking Tour, Stenstan, Stora torget (Main Square), Town Hall

Wooden houses became forbidden to build after this, and that is why the inner-city today is known as the 'Stone City'. The wealthy timber barons and merchants who lived here competed with one another to build the most remarkable homes at the end of the 1890s, and the result is what you see today. Next, walk to the main square, Stora torget, where the 14 bells of bronze emanating from the remarkable Town Hall can be heard throughout the city four times a day.
