Southern Sweden

The southern part of Sweden is a holiday favourite for Swedes. The islands of Öland and Gotland are sprinkled with historical sites, unique nature and local flavours. In Skåne, you’ll find yellow canola fields and the locally grown produce that the region is renowned for the forward-thinking city of Malmö features some of Sweden’s most progressive cuisine. On the west coast, the city of Gothenburg and the surrounding archipelago, offer seafood, outdoor adventures and stunning views.
