Sweden is a destination which seems to be perpetually on the rise... Evidenced, for example, by its education results, its laws are ahead of their time and Swedish ex-pats seem almost defiantly happy. It's also famous for its design, and of course for Lapland. All good reasons to give Sweden a shot.
As the destination is slowly becoming more open to tourism, we've done a quick round-up of the unmissable spots. Thankfully, tips and advice from the Evaneos experts are just a few clicks away, helping you gather ideas. A stay with the Sami in Lapland? A road trip around Stockholm? Unmissable sites in the country? No need to look any further: it's all here!
Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, is a veritable Venice of the North, and it's worth spending a few days here. Not only is the lifestyle there great, and you'll find yourself lingering at every shop; there are also many activities you can do on its string of islands: visit the old town on the island of Gamla Stan, Vasa museum, Skansen open-air museum, etc.
In winter and summer alike, a trip to Lapland is a must. Kiruna remains an imperative destination for hiking, particularly before Christmas, with its village dedicated to Father Christmas, and an ice hotel. You'll find beautiful areas with frozen lakes and beautiful forests ideally suited to a sleigh ride with a team of dogs towards the Abisco national park and towards Skellefteå.Try your hand at fishing, snowmobile-driving and walking in snowshoes too.
If you've got a little more time, consider visiting the Göteborg archipelago and lake Vättern as well. These are worthwhile excursions when leaving from Stockholm in Southern Sweden.
