Scintillating Sweden

Sweden holidays allow you to explore vibrant and stylish cities, expansive forests, frozen landscapes and picturesque islands – yet that’s only scratching the surface of the largest of the Nordic countries.

Visitors to this fantastic country will find a variety of holiday opportunities to embrace, whether embarking on city breaks, adventures in Sweden’s great outdoors or exploring islands.

Base yourself in the culture rich cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg or Malmo during your holidays in Sweden, or alternatively head to the far north to places like Kiruna or Lulea for access to snowy lands and the stunning Northern Lights. In the winter months you can ski at resorts like Are, while in the summer you can swim in the beaches off of the islands of Gotland and Oland.

A Country of Style

Style and sophistication seem to be synonymous with this country, and you’ll find much of these embraceable qualities throughout your Sweden holidays. The logistical starting point for many trips to these lands is the vibrant capital city of Stockholm. Perfect for a weekend break or an extended trip, visitors will revel in the city’s fabulous islands, such as the dramatic Gamla Stan. The old town is a maze of charm, while the city’s extensive collection of informative museums and engaging galleries will have culture vultures revelling in the choice available to them.

The country’s second largest city, Gothenburg is another destination boasting immense cultural significance, as well as a stunning location on the west coast and Liseberg – the country’s biggest amusement park, perfect for kids. Meanwhile in the south, the city of Malmo is home to a splendid and expansive square, incorporating the fine dining and café culture that makes a city break in Sweden so indulgent.

Natural Wonders

Outdoor life is a massive aspect of the country’s day-to-day existence, and this is something you’ll come to appreciate during your holidays to Sweden. Whether it’s cycling, canoeing, sailing, horse riding, skiing or hiking, visitors will find a plethora of things to do in Sweden if they’re in search of a holiday with an active mantra.

Kungsleden is the most famous hiking trail in Sweden and stretches for over 400km, transporting adventurers through dramatic landscapes, often featuring snowy peaks and mirror-like lakes, while Kullaberg is a beautiful nature reserve located in the south of the country and offers fantastic hiking and climbing opportunities to active types.

One of the top attractions in Sweden and certainly one of the most alluring spectacles in the world is that of the Northern Lights. Experienced in its earnest in the northern region of the Norrland, the general intensity increases the further north that you go. Two of the best jumping-off points to experience the lights are from Kiruna and Lulea where you can embark on a tour, or if you’re particularly lucky, witness them on your own watch. The best time to view the lights is from September to March – months that are particularly cool in the north of the nation, so bring a warm coat.
