Sweden

Sweden is a luxury holiday destination unlike any other. Whether you’re after a wander through one of the Nordic country’s national parks, the chance to witness the Northern Lights or a city break to define all city breaks, Sweden ticks every box. Spend a few days surrounded by blankets of glittering white snow that are seemingly untouched before heading to the streets of the many cities dotted throughout the country. The best way to experience Sweden is to go for yourself, so what are you waiting for?
 
You have a whole multitude of five-star hotels to choose from. Stockholm’s various offerings promise brilliant rooms in amazing locations that are close to a variety of landmarks such as The Royal Palace, Vasa Museum and the area of Stortorget. Alternatively, the choices in the Alps tend to be more chalet in style and feature expansive spas, bespoke accommodation and there are even some hotels made out of ice.
 
City-enthusiasts are sure to adore Stockholm. Set on 14 smaller islands, a quick wander down the canals and streets of the capital can easily turn into a day of exploration. And who knows? You may even find a hidden gem while you’re at it, too. Fantastic restaurants, bars and shops are in abundance here, as well as more than 100 museums that are bursting with culture to soak up.
 
Trade the city lights for a few days in the snow and head to Lapland. Home to Santa, reindeer and the stunning countryside, it’s a favourite spot for travellers who want to cross something off their bucket list. Skiing, husky rides and snowboarding all come as standard in the winter months. However, the region is just as stunning in the spring and summer. Flowing rivers, green pine trees, exotic flora and fauna… it’s an intrepid adventurer’s dream. 29.9 million holidaymakers visit Sweden every year so why not be one of them and book today?
 
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
 
If you consider yourself an animal lover then Sweden has you covered. With more than 300,000 moose, 300,000 reindeer and 3,200 bears roaming freely, you may just catch a glimpse of one or two during your holiday. There are 29 national parks throughout the country which are perfect if you want to spend all day among the flora, making new furry friends.

Sweden in a Nutshell

Soak Up The Culture
 
  • Just 45-minutes by car from Stockholm takes you to the ancient town of Sigtunia. With more than 1,000 years of history it’s the oldest town in Sweden and still remains well-preserved. Quaint shops, cute cafés and cultural church ruins… a historic playground!
  • Sweden is the home of Lapland. Being the northernmost province, you can expect it to be a little chilly however it’s totally worth it thanks to the natural world wonder that is the Northern Lights. Here you can also indulge in many experiences including skiing, canoeing and snowboarding.
  • The Swedish capital is brimming with plenty of culture, so much so that no two trips will be the same. High-end restaurants, numerous museums covering anything from ancient warships to Abba, and a thriving nightlife - there really is something for everyone.
 
Tastes To Try
 
  • Traditional gourmet meals as well as modern dishes with an Asian and South American twist make up the 13-course set menu at Flickan. One of Stockholm’s 48 Michelin-starred restaurants, this 16-seater eatery promises immaculate service and exotic flavours with every bite. 
  • Sjömagasinet can be found in an old East Indian Company warehouse in Gothenburg. Split across two levels, make sure to ask for a table upstairs so you can take in the amazing views of the harbour. It’s the perfect accompaniment to the mouthwatering cuisine before you.
  • If you’re heading to Sweden in August, prepare to eat a lot of seafood! Crayfish parties are one of the most well-known celebrations throughout the Nordic country. Normally taking place outside, you can expect an unforgettable night complete with paper hats, paper lanterns, plenty of alcohol and fine food.
 
Family Fun Guaranteed
 
  • Sweden boasts more than 140 castles which are fantastic learning experiences for the whole family. Located in the picturesque town of Mariefred on Lake Mälaren, Gripsholm Castle is one of the most well-known archaic structures thanks to its romantic grounds, nature reserves and antique furniture that covers four centuries worth of history. Alternatively, if you’re in Stockholm then make sure to visit Drottningholm Palace. The permanent residence of the Royal Family since 1981, it’s one of Stockholm’s three World Heritage Sites.
  • Vasa Museum is one of the country’s most popular attractions. Combining the amazing story of the Vasa ship that sunk in the early 17th century you also discover facts about the history of Sweden. There’s plenty for kids and adults to do within the walls of the Stockholm venue, with guided tours also available.
