Stockholm

Stockholm, Sweden’s Capital city, is the perfect city to discover throughout the year. Known as the world’s biggest smallest city it has plenty to offer when it comes to exploring there.

In the winter you can use it as a stopover before heading further north to discover Swedish Lapland and during this season it is perfect to visit the Chrismas markets or head out to do some ice skating at Kungsträdgården and many other locations.

Through further seasons you have a wealth of amazing hikes to choose from both inside and outside of the city or perhaps you might prefer to sample some of the cafes and enjoy an outdoor fika. There are plenty of world heritage sites to discover, always an event or exhibition, and then a wonderful wealth of restaurants to eat at.

West Sweden

West Sweden is a real hidden gem that needs to be discovered – the fact that most Scandinavians head here for their holidays speaks volumes on why it is so popular and the ‘go to’ place in Sweden during the Summer and Autumn months.

Starting in the city of Gothenburg which is known as the ‘culinary and festival capital of Sweden’ you have a host of great hotels to choose from here and when it comes to places to eat; if you are meat eater, shellfish lover, or vegan you will be truly spoilt for choice!

From Gothenburg, you can then head out by either car or by train to explore the lakes, forest, islands, and pretty coastal villages of the three provinces of Bohuslän, Dalsland and Västergötland! These three main provinces offer contrasting landscapes and activities that include sea kayaking, cycling, and hiking.

There is so much nature to discover too from seals, dancing cranes (in the March/April months), to learning about endangered species at Nordens Ark.
