Best places to visit in Sweden

  • Stockholm: The capital of Sweden, which is built on an archipelago of islands, is a combination of outdoor activities, places of historical interest and art and culture. Take time to visit museums such as The Vasa Museum or The Modern Museum. Catch a ferry across to one of the islands or take some time to explore the culinary scene whether dining at casual restaurants or Michelin starred ones.  
  • Gävle: Just a two-hour drive from Stockholm, this city is located in the county of Gästrikland on the east coast of Sweden. Stroll through the cobbled streets of the old town with its pastel houses that were built in the 18th century. Once you have seen the town, head out into the Boulognerskogen – a park that has paths winding through the forests and a river running through it.   
  • Helsingborg: A city with a beautiful waterfront and a vibrant arts and culture scene, Helsingborg also has some impressive architecture that takes you back to various periods in the city’s history. Visit Dunkers Kulturhus – an arts centre and museum or take a stroll through the old town to see the 14th-century Kärnan Tower and St Mary’s Church which dates back even further to the 12th century.  

Winter in 2021 in Sweden

For visitors who are into winter sports, including snowmobiling and riding on a dog sledge, winter is the ideal time to visit Sweden. Travel up north to Swedish Lapland where you could stay in the Ice Hotel. Here you can indulge in snowshoeing and cross-country skiing too and, of course, look out for the magical northern lights. Winter in the south should be spent in the cities, exploring museums and drinking hot coffee in the warmth of cafes.
