Sweden strikes the perfect balance between urban culture and outdoor fun. Major cities like Stockholm and Gothenburg are progressive and modern, yet retain their history in the form of well-preserved medieval architecture. Yet there are also an impressive 29 national parks in Sweden, stretching from the southern coast to above the Arctic Circle.
When is the best time to visit?
To beat the crowds and enjoy some pleasant hiking weather, visit Sweden during spring (March-May). If you travel during the summer, you’ll have to contend with the high-season crowds—but you’ll also be able to take advantage of Sweden’s famous summer music festivals. These include Way out West, Summerburst, and various genre festivals ranging from metal to reggae. Winter (Nov-Feb) brings great winter-sports conditions, but know that in the coldest months, temps can dip all the way down to -22°F/-30°C in the country's northern reaches.
Where should you go?
Stockholm will be your first stop—it's as rich in medieval history and culture as it is abounding with nightlife and excitement. For spring and summer hiking, go north and test yourself on the Kungsleden Trail (King’s Trail), which runs more than 200 miles through Abisko National Park. If you’d like to pamper yourself, head to the day spas in the city of Ystad. For world-class skiing, snowboarding, and snowmobiling during winter, head to the mountains of central Sweden and the Åre Resort. If you want to view the Northern Lights, travel above the Arctic Circle to the village of Abisko. Also during this time, you can find ice skating and festive holiday activities in Stockholm.
How many days do you need?
In seven days, you can see Stockholm and travel to the south, which is filled with beautiful beaches like those near the medieval port city of Malmö. You could then head north to the coastal city of Gothenburg (a rival to Stockholm for architecture and sheer beauty), and still have time left over to visit a national park, such as Tyresta or Royal Djurgården. But you could easily spend two weeks or more exploring Sweden’s many national parks and cities.
Five days might seem short, but it's all you need to discover the ancient history, cutting-edge city life, delicious cuisine, and rich culture of Sweden's capital. From Viking ruins to bustling downtown fun, you'll experience the best of old and new combined Nordic-style into an ideal break. Tailor-made guided tours mean you won't waste a moment as you visit Stockholm's highlights and learn about its traditions first-hand—with plenty of delicious coffee breaks along the way!
See three corners of Sweden, flying from Stockholm in the south, north to the Arctic Circle, and then west to Gothenburg. Over 10 days of self-guided adventure, you'll hike through mountain forests, learn about Indigenous Sámi culture, experience laid-back island life, and delve into city culture. Moving around on trains in the north and ferries in Gothenburg gives you a chance to take in the magic of the Swedish summer landscape as you travel.
Experience the wonders of a Swedish winter on this two-week excursion to marvel at the famous northern lights and enjoy plenty of other unforgettable activities. Traveling from Stockholm, in the south, to the far north, you'll enjoy outdoor adventures like dogsledding, ice fishing, hiking, and lodging at an ice hotel and forest treehouse. Beyond that, you'll discover the hidden gems of Stockholm, learn a bit of Viking history, and even go on a moose safari.
Experience the natural beauty of the Skåne region in southern Sweden on this five-day road trip. The circular route starts in Copenhagen and takes you through Skåne seaside towns, countryside, and forested parks. Along the way, stroll medieval cobbled streets that serve as movie backdrops in Ystad, visit lush vineyards and taste local seafood dishes. You'll also join a horse-riding tour of Soderasen National Park and a hike along the famous Molle trail in Kullaberg Nature Reserve.
