The guide to the best spas in Stockholm
Stockholm has a large selection of spas and wellness centres. Escape the bustling city and treat yourself to a spa-break - what could be more relaxing than a deep tissue massage, body scrub, facial and other spa treatments? Or simply enjoy a change of scenery; recline by the pool in a fluffy terrycloth bathrobe or break a sweat at the gym. A trip to the spa doesn't necessarily have to break the bank, Stockholm boasts of an abundance of spas at various pricing points. Book an exclusive spa weekend or a casual daytrip out of the city, many city hotels offer spa deals to non-guests and are centrally located.
