Sweden - when and where to go

At the mere mention of Sweden, your mind may conjure up images of snow-capped peaks, reindeer wandering in vast forests and the one day of 24-hour daylight, however beyond this there is much of Sweden which is unknown.

The largest of the Scandinavian countries, Sweden has enough space for everyone – from the countryside boasting of pine, spruce and birch forests for as far as the eye can see to crystal-clear lakes which are ideal for a summer dip. In addition, Sweden’s south and west coasts are home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Europe.

When to go

Generally, May to September is the best time to visit Sweden. Summer weather in Sweden is at an a very pleasant average of 23C. By the end of August, the leaves start to change colour and night frosts are not unusual. By November, the ground is usually covered in a soft blanket of snow which lasts until at least the following March.

Where to go

Stockholm, without a shadow of a doubt, is one of the most stunning cities in Europe. The city is built on 14 islands, where the fresh water of Lake Mälaren meets the Baltic Sea. A third of the area is made up of water while another third contains parks and woodlands, making it a delighted place to visit.

The grandest city in South Sweden is Gothenburg which boasts of parkland, elegant squares, trams and canals – as well as being the backdrop to Scandinavia’s largest seaport.

You can also travel to Sweden's east coast which borders the Gulf of Bothnia; the entire coastline is dotted with charming towns and villages.
