Ice skating is a popular winter activity in Sweden. There are outdoor rinks in most cities, if you want to get the feel of balancing on sharp blades without the risk of falling through the ice into cold water underneath.

Northern Sweden

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.

Southern Sweden

Southern Sweden probably gives you pleasant surprise since the landscapes and scenery here probably differ from the image you have in your head. Here you can visit SmålandÖlandMalmö in Skåne, and the amazing summer island destination Gotland. On the west coast of Sweden you find Sweden's second largest city Gothenburg and the region of West Sweden
