With diverse natural beauty, rich history and culture and cool, cosmopolitan cities, a luxury holiday to Sweden has something to offer everyone. There are fantastic opportunities to spot the Northern Lights, incredible experiential accommodation like the famous Icehotel, and the chance to explore Swedish Lapland with husky-sledding and snowmobiling.

In the fashionable capital, Stockholm, you’ll find great museums, picturesque parks and picture-postcard streets in the historic old town, Gamla Stan. In hip Gothenburg, Sweden’s second city, fantastic seafood, buzzing culture and art museums await.

Swedish Lapland, deep in the Arctic Circle, is one of the best places anywhere to view the Northern Lights, particularly during the long, clear nights between September and April. Staying in amazing wilderness hotels like Fjellborg Arctic Lodge, you’ll embark on husky-pulled sled rides and snowmobile treks to reach the clearest, most secluded spots to marvel at the aurora borealis. During the summer, the Northern Lights give way to the midnight sun, an equally otherworldly phenomenon.

If you’re looking for a lesser-trodden honeymoon destination, Sweden is a great choice. On our Romantic Winter Safari, you can cross-country ski, dog-sled and ice-fish in between spotting the Northern Lights, enjoying delicious Lappish cuisine and meeting the local Sami people, who have lived in these lands since prehistoric times.

Sweden is also a great destination for a gourmet food holiday; Stockholm and Gothenburg are home to world class restaurants, while the fertile highlands of Jamtland make it the county’s culinary capital. The jewel in Sweden’s culinary crown is the ground-breaking Faviken, where trailblazing young chef Magnus Nilsson has kickstarted the craze for foraging in gourmet cuisine.

HIGHLIGHTS OF SWEDEN

The Northern Lights. The stunning aurora borealis justifiably top many bucket lists, and northern Sweden’s clear night skies make it one of the best places anywhere in the world to see them.

Swedish Lapland is fantastic for arctic adventures, with husky sledding, ice fishing, and wilderness survival among the activities on offer at remote luxury lodges like Fjellborg Arctic Lodge.

Incredible hotels. The Icehotel in Jukkasjarvi was the first of its kind in the world and has inspired numerous copycats; each winter vast blocks of ice are fashioned into uniquely designed rooms and suites, which melt away again the following spring.

Sweden’s gourmet food scene is booming, with special mention going to Faviken, one of the finest restaurants in the world. Sitting in remote central Sweden, surrounded by forests and meadows, chef Magnus Nillson forages ingredients from the surrounding grounds to create innovative Nordic cuisine.

Sweden’s cities have something to offer everyone, from cutting-edge design and cuisine in glamorous Stockholm to buzzing musical and cultural scenes in laid-back Gothenburg.
