The Winters

Due to its northern location, Sweden receives some of the most beautiful snowfall to trim the landscapes with. It’s arguably due to the intense coldness that the people have such character and welcome tourists with open arms. If you’re into winter sports, there’s no better destination than Sweden to get your fix. Why not hire a jet ski and travel around the frozen lakes in a novel way? Then wash it down with a great Swedish jug of beer to truly do the destination proud.

Music Festivals

There are some brilliant music festivals in Sweden. One of the best is Way out West, in Gothenburg. This is held in Slottsskogen Park and is one of the biggest in Europe. Drawing some of the best acts from across the world, this is the best way to fuse the freedom loving spirit of a festival with the open and gorgeous climate of the Swedish landscape.

The Nature

Sweden is one of the more idyllic countries, with wide-ranging mountains, trees, lakes and wildlife. The cities and natural national parks are closely interlinked, so you’re never too far away from one to visit the other. This will be an awesome opportunity to reconnect with nature and explore your inner free Viking spirit.

The Northern Lights

The northern lights are the most observable and beautiful in Sweden. If you’ve only seen them in pictures or video, that doesn’t do it justice. Sitting and basking in cosmic awe as you rest in a beautiful natural environment is almost too amazing to fully absorb. You’ll be sure to remember the experience for the rest of your life.


Sweden has a beautiful array of varied wildlife, and the untouched natural landscapes only add to that. In fact, you can easily find wild reindeer in Sweden, which is sure to capture the imagination of your children if you take them.
