Holidays to Sweden
There’s far more to Sweden than ABBA and IKEA. Modern, cosmopolitan cities chock full of cutting-edge design and architecture share billing with breathtaking landscapes of forests, lakes and mountains. Home to ice hotels and Viking ships, here you can feast on local delicacies such as delicious crayfish and moreish meatballs with lingonberry jam.
The capital, Stockholm, is spread out across 14 islands and combines medieval history with striking modernity. Second city Gothenburg is renowned for its beautiful canals and melange of architecture, while Malmo is known for its diversity, food and culture.
Whether you embrace the Swedish tradition of fika and cosy up with coffee and cake in a cool cafe, or go dogsledding or chasing the Northern Lights in the wilderness of Lapland and the far north, there’s no shortage of ways to unwind. Lovers of the great outdoors will feel at home with more than 90,000 lakes to enjoy, while winter sports fans should check out the popular ski resorts of Are, Salen and Vemdalen.

Holidays in Sweden
Our recommended holidays in Sweden
Most Swedes enjoy a high quality of living in the urbanised south, where Volvo and IKEA took the design world by storm. Gothenburg is Sweden's major port and industrial centre, while the resund region, linked by bridge with Denmark, is among the most densely populated. Head north to Lapland and you'll find a real contrast in its vast open spaces and spectacular mountain scenery.
