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.
