Destination Overview

SWEDEN

Sweden is a country rich in opportunities; from the Arctic beauty of the North with its midnight sun, to the castles of the southernmost province Skåne with its more continental flavour. Visitors to Northern Sweden can experience the frozen thrills of the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi, dog sledging, ice fishing, snowmobiling and more. Further South, visitors can enjoy the 1,680 miles of coastline with tens of thousands of islands to explore.

Top Highlights

Lakes

With over 100,000 lakes in Sweden, you're never too far from a beautiful lakeside. And thanks to Sweden’s right of public access, these serenity-inducing waters are free for all to enjoy. Embark on any number of activities – from refreshing wild swimming and peaceful kayak excursions to Nordic tour skating and tranquil fishing experiences.

The Edible Country

In Sweden, naturally healthy food can be found just around the corner – in the forests, lakes, and meadows. That’s why the world’s largest gourmet restaurant has been created: the Edible Country. In collaboration with four Michelin-starred chefs, inspirational menus have been created, featuring local produce to help you experience the Swedish pantry.

Vikings

Vikings have captured the imaginations of all ages for centuries – and perhaps more so now than ever via films and TV series such as The Northman and Vikings: Valhalla. Often portrayed as bloodthirsty warriors, there's a lot more to these seafaring Scandinavians who were also dedicated farmers, master shipbuilders and skilled craftspeople.
