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
Winter adventures do not get much more real, or exotic than mushing your own team of Alaskan Huskies in the Swedish mountains, or in Swedish Lapland in the Arctic Circle.
Fishing in Sweden
Fishing in Sweden in its 100,000 lakes, wild waterways and along the coast is a trip of a lifetime. Come hook a salmon, trout or Arctic char.
Sailing in Sweden
Why do you almost never meet sailor Swedes in the Mediterranean in summertime? Because they are all in Sweden having the sailing time of their lives.

Skiing in Sweden
The ski resorts of Sweden stretch from Riksgränsen in the Arctic Circle, in the far north, down the backbone of the Swedish mountains in the north-west, and then wind east into the province of Dalarna.
King’s Trail (Kungsleden) in Swedish Lapland? The Blekinge, Skåne and Halland trails in the more temperate south? Gotland island in the Baltic sea, or the West Coast and its archipelago. Heard of them?
