Things do & see:
Stockholm Archipelago – It’s worth spending a little money to take a boat from Stockholm to the different islands and experience just what they’re about. During the summer, they become big attractions for locals as they boat on the water and spend nights on the tiny islands in the area. Be sure to get out of the city and see some of this more local region.
Stockholm – There is so much history in Stockholm that if you stay less than three days here, you’ll leave feeling like you missed out. From the museums to nightlife, there’s no time to get bored. It’s one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen, rivaling the best capitals of Europe. From picturesque harbors to the charming lanes of Old Town, Stockholm is a city to soak in.
Gothenburg – It’s worth a day’s trip just to walk along the cobblestone pedestrian streets and window shop in one of the oldest neighborhoods in the area. You’ll find plenty of cafes here, some of which sell cinnamon buns as big as your face! They also have some wonderfully-quaint restaurants, so stop at one of the many when you get hungry for lunch (just be aware you’ll find cheaper food elsewhere).
Malmo-All roads in the gorgeous province of Skåne in southern Sweden lead to Malmö, a city that thrives on diversity and sustainability. The city is part of the expanding Öresund region and is joined to Copenhagen in Denmark by the mighty, arching Öresund bridge.
Umea- It’s not hard to understand why Umeå was the European Capital of Culture in 2014. The locals are in love with culture and as a visitor it’s easy to access the rich cultural life. In winter the annual Sami week, a celebration of Sami culture, art, music, culture and language. In summer, thrilling festivals and events like Brännbollsyran and Umeå Live attract both locals and visitors.
Småland-is a region famous for its beautiful countryside, cute red cottages, glass and furniture design and traditional food. Småland is like a Sweden in miniature with something to do for the whole family.
Öland- The island of Oland joined to the Swedish mainland by the 6 km-long road bridge Ölandsbron from the city of Kalmar in the south of the country, is a favourite summer holiday destination for Swedish families who rent cottages or stay at one of the 25 well-run campsites or holiday villages on the island
Vasa Museum – As one of Sweden’s Wonders of the World, it showcases an amazingly-preserved 17th Century ship, complete with six levels for your viewing. This battle ship was built to demonstrate Sweden’s might, however, it ironically sank upon launch. This museum is the best in the country and gives you a lot of historical context about the ship and empire at the time. This is a must see attraction!
Brave the cold in Lapland – Located to the far north is the tundra-like landscape in Sweden known as the Lapland. This is where the Sami, Sweden’s indigenous people, continue to make their home in the snowy cold, and where you can see reindeer, do some great skiing, and experience the great Arctic north. In the winter it’s a great place for a colorful Northern Lights viewing!
Partake in fika – Like “tea time” in the UK, fika is Sweden’s way of slowing down. Coffee, conversation, and a few baked goods are an important part of the social fabric in Sweden, allowing friends and colleagues to take a break from the day to day and just relax. You don’t invite someone out for coffee in Sweden — you invite them to fika.
The Ice Hotel – Located up north, the Ice Hotel is a hotel built during the winter months out of (you guessed it) ice. You stay in an essentially giant igloo. There’s an ice bar, ice dining room, and an ice bed (with big fur blankets!). Be prepared to pay the price for a unique stay like this and that’s just for a basic ice room! The hotel is also open for tours during the day, allowing visitors to explore the impressive construction and design.
Gotland – This island is a popular place to visit when the weather is nice and it’s where most Swedes spend their summer. Week 29 (out of the 52 week year) is the most popular and crowded week when all the kids come down to party up a storm (so if you’re looking to avoid that, skip that week!). The main town, Visby, is a medieval walled city that is incredibly beautiful. It’s like walking through the 1400s. The island is home to numerous Viking relics, and there’s a cool hostel in an old prison too!
Midsummer Festival – Swedes celebrate the summer solstice with a giant party. It’s not warm and light often here and they make the most of it by dancing around a maypole, eating, drinking, and enjoying nature. Every municipality around the country will organize events, so be sure to find some Swedes who can show you around.
Christmas & Lucia-is one of our best loved traditions and it takes place on 13 December every year. If you visit Sweden on, or before December 13th you can see how the 400-year old tradition of St. Lucia is celebrated.
Bohuslän Coast – This beautiful coast has been smoothed and carved out by glaciers. Taking a boat trip here is a great way to see Scandinavian fjords without having to visit Sweden’s expensive neighbor, Norway. There is also a UNESCO rock-carving site over in Tanumshede too.
Ski – Scandinavians love their winter sports, understandably so because it’s cold most of the year! One of the most popular ski resorts in the region is Åre, which lies 80 km from of Östersund. The highest peak at the resort is over 1400 meters. Daily trains run to the area from Stockholm.
Kick back in Uppsala – This university town is one of the most popular study-abroad locations in Northern Europe, and it’s got a great student life. The city also features a castle, museums, and numerous gardens. This is also one of the most budget-friendly places in the country thanks to all the students there!
Celebrate Valborg Day – Held on April 30th, this annual Swedish festival serves to welcome spring. It’s characterized by huge bonfires, and even bigger parties, and is a tradition dating back to the Middle Ages. Municipalities will often organize events — including the massive bonfires — though many locals will also host their own parties. Be sure to ask around to take part! I was lucky enough to be there for it one year and it was an amazing experience!
Wallander’s Ystad – If you’ve read the writing of Henning Mankell or seen the popular adaptation, the Wallander TV series, you’re already familiar with Ystad. This small town is picturesque and full of history. If you’re a big fan of Wallandar, you can arrange a tour at the tourist office, but even if you’re not, the town itself has a lot of character and is worth exploring. It’s only one hour from Malmö.
Kosterhavet – This is a marine park located on the Koster Islands, around two hours from Gothenburg. The park contains Sweden’s only coral reef, and the villages on the islands are quaint. The whole natural area is very beautiful, and it’s worth renting some bikes to explore the islands.
Hike The Kings Trail – This 440km trail stretches along some of the most remote and pristine landscapes in the country. While it takes over one month to hike the entire trail, it is very easy to carve out shorter hikes if you’re feeling adventurous. There are numerous huts along the route where hikers can sleep, stock up on goods, and get rides back into nearby towns.
Skara Sommarland – If you happen to be in Sweden during the fleeting summer months, consider heading out to one of Sweden’s only water parks. The family-friendly park is host to a campground, and also offers cabins for rent.
