Sweden’s scenic charms stretch from the gentle beauty of the south to the rugged north. The west coast boasts a spectacular archipelago of around 8,000 island and inlets dotted with brightly painted houses and picture postcard hamlets. Further north are the wide open spaces, rivers and mountains of Swedish Lapland, home of the original Icehotel.
With a wealth of year round holidays to Sweden, its winter appeal is the snow-covered wilderness of Lapland, with its thrilling winter activities and the chance to see the mesmerising northern lights. In contrast, the long, warm days of summer are perfect for active adventures in the forests and lakes or a leisurely self-drive along the picturesque coast.
Sweden Trip Types and Experiences
Planning a trip to Sweden
During winter our exclusive direct flight takes you into the heart of Swedish Lapland in just 3½ hours. In this winter wonderland, experience husky sledding, snowmobiling, snow-shoeing, moose safari and an array of other fabulous activities. Spend a night in the magnificent Icehotel where you can ‘sleep on ice’ or visit the Aurora Sky Station in Abisko National Park, officially the best place to catch the northern lights thanks to its position and virtually cloudless skies. Explore a little further into the Lulea archipelago to discover wilderness retreats including tree houses, traditional timber cabins and cosy tents.
For a summer escape, soak up the sunshine and beautiful scenery on a self drive. Meander through the rolling countryside of the southern province of Skane or along the west coast with its scattered islands and picturesque villages. Equally, Swedish Lapland is cocooned in the seemingly endless daylight of the midnight sun offering the perfect surrounds for outdoor adventures while at Icehotel 365 you can sleep in an ice room, no matter how warm it is outside!
