Sweden: Holidays and Adventures

Discover amazing scenery on our Sweden Holidays

Situated in Northern Europe, bordering Norway and Finland, Sweden Holidays transport you to a destination whose secret lies in its stunning natural beauty and excellent activity holidays. This is a destination with a great deal to offer whatever time of year you visit. With hiking, canoeing and white water rafting enticing summer visitors, winter guests make the most of the 15% of the country which lies north of the Arctic Circle.

Covering an area over three times the size of England, Sweden is the largest country in Northern Europe and has a population of 9.5 million, the majority of whom live in the south. The country is divided into 25 provinces or landskap which are grouped together into three larger regions: the southern Götaland, the central Svealand and the sparsely populated northern Norrland which covers an amazing 60% of the country.

In terms of landscape, the south of the country is mostly given over to agriculture, with forestation increasing the further north you travel. Indeed, some 65% of this beautiful land is covered by forests.

Take a look at our full selection of holidays in Sweden and find your perfect tour! If, however, you could do with a little more guidance on what you can experience here, just check out our Swedish holiday ideas!

Savour the South

Scenic beauty comes very much as standard here. Those who enjoy Sweden Holidays to the south can unwind in its lush, green surroundings can enjoy a laid back pace of life. Many spend time discovering the delights of the historic Gota Canal whose 382 mile route links Gothenburg on the west coast to Söderköping on the Baltic Sea.

Natural beauty is also a big draw for those who travel on Sweden Holidays in the southern lake area. There are fabulously quirky breaks on offer here including the chance to stay in the middle of Lake Mälaren, sleeping in an underwater bedroom, the option to book into a hotel for two which is seemingly sunk amidst the Västerås archipelago and the pleasure of spending time in a treetop hideaway in the city of Västerås – one of the oldest in Northern Europe.

Wildlife watching is also popular with those who travel on Sweden Holidays. The Bergslagen Forest, for example, is a prime location for nature holidays with the Grimsö Wildlife Research Station playing a central role in our trip to track wolves in this fabulous part of the world.

Capital Concerns

Of course, Sweden is also famed for its fabulous capital, Stockholm. This fascinating city offers a host of historic and modern attractions. The city centre itself is made up of 14 islands, all connected by bridges. Particularly popular is the old town, Gamla Stan, whose stunning architecture draws holidaymakers from far and wide. Stockholm is a popular choice for multi- centre Sweden Holidays as well as being a favoured port of call on many cruise itineraries.

Sleeping in the Trees on Sweden Holidays

Those travelling on Sweden Holidays further north should take time to consider fabulous Harads. This is the beautiful location of the famous Treehotel – a selection of holiday suites with charmingly unusual themes. But whether you choose to stay in the UFO, the Bird’s Nest or one of the other amazing rooms here, one thing is for sure, you’ll be treated to magnificent views throughout the year.

Cool Breaks

The magic of the ICehotel awaits on our Sweden Holidays

When it comes to Sweden Holidays, there is one hotel whose fame outshines the rest: the world renowned Icehotel. Situated in the beautiful village of Jukkasjärvi, this iconic holiday base offers once-in-a-lifetime experiences. Spend a night in one of the amazing ice suites, drink in the wonderful Icebar and spend your daytimes enjoying fabulous winter activities in the stunningly beautiful countryside here.

And if you think a stay at the Icehotel is only for those holidaying in the colder months, you’d better think again! The people behind this fabulous construction have now created a summer version, based in a temperature controlled building, meaning you can combine the coolest of nights with days spent canoeing, hiking and generally enjoying the beauty of the area.

Incredible Aurora Sightings on Sweden Holidays

Those heading on Sweden Holidays in the winter, can look forward to some thrilling Northern Lights searches. This amazing phenomenon puts in a regular appearance in northern skies during the winter and there’s no better place to experience it than the famous Aurora Sky Station in Abisko. Here, clear skies and perfect positioning offer the best possible chance of some simply amazing sightings.
