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.

Summer activities

Canoeing and kayaking in the Stockholm or Gothenburg archipelagos, cycle along the Kattegattleden från Skåne to West Sweden or go hiking in Swedish Lapland. Sweden has outdoor activities for everyone.
