Things to do
Adventure and sport
Adventure and sports activities in Sweden are naturally seasonal and spring and summer arrive in the north and Swedish Lapland later than in central and southern Sweden.
Two kayaks on an islet in the Stockholm archipelago. Canoeing or kayaking is a popular pastime, and an excellent way to take advantage of Sweden’s right of public access and extensive coastline and inland lakes and rivers.

Dog sledding in Sweden
Want a true winter adventure? Winter adventures don’t get much more real, or exotic than mushing your own team of Alaskan Huskies in svenska fjällen, the Swedish Mountains, or in Lapland in the Arctic Circle.
Fishing in Sweden
How many lakes? About 100,000. And if you are near one (you always are in Sweden) bring your tackle on holiday, or buy it locally.
