During the Pit Stop, teams were moved from Grad Socerb to Four Points by Sheraton Ljubljana Mons in Ljubljana before the start of the leg.

Teams must take a bus to Vienna, Austria,[1] and then fly to Stockholm, Sweden. Upon arrival, teams must take a taxi to Stockholms Fallskärmsklubb, where they would find their next clue.

Teams must each perform a tandem skydive with an instructor from a height of 10,000 ft over the Baltic Sea. Once both team members have landed on Djurgården, they would receive their next clue.

Teams make their way on foot to Villa Källhagen, then take a marked boat to the island of Tynningö, where they would find their next clue.

"Who wants to party?"

The team member assigned to this Roadblock must, following an ongoing demonstration, use the provided materials to construct a flower ring. Once the judge is satisfied with their work, they must attach their flower ring to Midsummer maypole, raise the maypole with the aid of locals, then join a circle dance around it to receive their next clue.

The Roadblock performers per team are underlined:

Rob & Corey used their Express Pass to bypass this Roadblock. Rob had chosen to perform the task prior to handing over the Express Pass.[2]

Teams must take their boat to Nybrokajen, then make their way on foot to the Royal Dramatic Theatre, where they must follow the music to find a woman playing the violin, who would give teams their next clue.

Teams take the Stockholm Metro subway from Kungsträdgården metro station to Solna centrum metro station, where they would find their next clue.

Choice A: Sort
Teams must make their way to Bromma Recycling Centre, where they must sort a pile of trash into recycling centre's 15 categories to receive their next clue.

Joel & Garrett, Rob & Corey, Steve & Anna Leigh, and Todd & Ashlie chose this task.

Choice B: Serve
Teams must make their way to Stadshuskällaren at Stockholm City Hall, where they must serve a three-course meal to a table of Nobel laureate impersonators. Using the provided menu that listed in French the dishes served at the Nobel Banquet the year that each laureate (Marie Curie in 1911, Albert Einstein in 1921, Pearl S. Buck in 1938, and Linus Pauling in 1954) was awarded, one team member must act as a server, memorizing each dish for each of the courses and relay these orders to their partner, who had to find them on a large table full of dishes. Once all three courses are served correctly, teams would receive their next clue.

Only Greg & John chose this task.

Teams take a taxi to Pampas Marina and search for their next clue by the M/Y Alba II boat.

Teams must take the Stockholm Metro from Västra skogen metro station to Kungsträdgården metro station, then make their way on foot to Strömparterren to check in.
For coming in first place, Joel & Garrett won Expedia cashback rewards for a trip for two to the Galápagos Islands in Ecuador.
