Destinations in Sweden
Gothenburg and West Sweden
Gothenburg and West Sweden have international travel journalists and food bloggers salivating. Why? World-class seafood, world-class restaurants and a coastline and archipelago to die for.
The beautiful Swedish capital prides itself on being open to anyone and everyone. A curious city, eager to try anything that is new, anything that’s different. So, welcome to Stockholm, whoever you are!
Central Sweden is home to capital city Stockholm, the provinces of Dalarna and Värmland, as well as the beautiful city of Uppsala.
If you have watched the ‘Wallander’ television series, adapted from the books of Henning Mankell, you pretty much have the southern tip of Sweden in a nutshell. And it really is that gorgeous; with rolling plains, white cottages in the distance, and endless sandy beaches. 'Am I in Sweden', you may ask yourself.
Northern Sweden and Swedish Lapland are unique. There is nowhere else in the world where you can visit the ICEHOTEL and Treehotel. Or sit around the campfire with a Sami guide, sharing stories of the day’s dog sledding adventure.
From the far north in Swedish Lapland, wrapping around the coastline of the deep south, before stretching up the west coast, there are thousands of islands where you can get a taste of island life.
Northern Lights, Aurora Borealis trips and holidays
The best chance of seeing the Northern Lights at Abisko between November and end March.
Skåne and Malmö beaches
If you didn’t know it already we are a nation of bathers. Lake, river or sea, Swedes will get their kit off and jump into it.
