Sweden's scenic charms may not be as overt as its Norwegian neighbour, but the rolling landscapes, sandy beaches and abundant forests and lakes provide an picturesque backdrop for a wide range of experiences - from outdoor pursuits to gourmet delights. The country also boasts a beautiful capital city in Stockholm, which stretches across an archipelago of 14 islands connected by waterways and bridges.
It can be said that Sweden’s appeal is as a winter break destination, particularly in the snow-covered wilderness of Lapland. This frozen landscape is perfect for activities such as snowmobiling and husky sledding. The icon of Swedish Lapland is without a doubt the world famous Icehotel, a stunning creation of ice and snow offering the unique chance to ‘sleep on ice’.
A stay at the Icehotel can also be teamed with a night at the Aurora Sky Station in Abisko National Park. With virtually cloud-free skies due to the obliging prevailing winds, this lofty observatory is one of the best places in the world for northern lights viewing.
The stunning countryside and sparkling coastline of West and Southern Sweden is best visited in summer. The southern province of Skane enjoys a mild climate and an ambience reminiscent of the South of France. Slightly further north, West Sweden has a character all of its own. The coastline stretches from Gothenburg to the Norwegian border, with a spectacular archipelago of around 8,000 islands and inlets, picture postcard hamlets and harbours and golden dunes. Both regions are ideal for a summer self drive.

SUMMER OR WINTER?
Both seasons offer compelling reasons for visiting Sweden. Simplistically, you may consider it a choice of the midnight sun versus the northern lights! While May to August brings a wonderful golden glow and virtually endless days, September to April brings the prospect of the aurora borealis, especially in Lapland. Winter breaks tend to be shorter in duration and focus on snow-based activities, while summer is a time for exploring the countryside at a leisurely pace.
