Things to do

Nature in the city

Even in Sweden’s big cities; Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö, nature is literally on your doorstep.
Nature in Stockholm

As international cities go Stockholm usually gets a mention as being one of the most beautiful. It sits on 14 islands, is surrounded by water and has abundant parkland, forest and lakeshore beaches.

Nature in Gothenburg

Being a port city you are never far from water in Gothenburg; down at the harbour where giant ferries traffic continental Europe, or the city’s beautifully laid-out canals.

Nature in Malmö

Malmö is famous for its city centre parks (16 and counting) and its beautiful canals that wind their way through the older parts of town.
