Getting There

Gothenburg has many ways of accessing it. To start with you have Gothenburg Ladnvetter Airport where international flights fly – other options include flying into either Oslo (4hrs), Stockholm (3.5 hrs), or even Copenhagen (4hrs) and getting the train from those cities there. That way you can do a twin centre and, at the right time of year, get to see all the parts of the country on a scenic train ride.

Due to its latitude, West Sweden has a relatively mild climate. The winters are short and can be quite cold with an average temperature of around 0 but the summer offers long daylight hours and warm with temperatures sometimes reaching the late twenties or above. In general, the climate is similar to that of Southern England.
