If you are on holiday in Sweden you want to see as much as possible in as little time as possible. You are looking for the authentic Swedish experience, but preferably in the most efficient way possible. Mr Nordic understands that, and has therefore compiled this well-organized checklist of the best highlights and the most beautiful experiences. That way you get the most out of your trip to Sweden.
Sweden, land of forests and Vikings
Sweden is a beautiful, sparsely populated country in northern Europe. It is a land of contradictions: beautiful lake and forest landscapes contrast with stylish, hip, modern cities. The country is of course known for its Viking history, but also for its progressive technology.
The flat landscape of the south contrasts sharply with the mountainous north. All this makes Sweden a country where you can retreat to the quiet forests to forget everything, or just mingle in the hip crowd in the trendy cities of Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg. Sweden also offers in the winter possibilities, such as walking in the snow or trips with sled dogs, although it can get very cold in parts of Sweden, down to -35 degrees! Lapland is a special attraction in the north.
With a coastline of almost three thousand kilometers, there is always a beach nearby and with days that last almost 24 hours in the summer, there is also plenty of time to enjoy it.
The Sweden checklist
The checklist is made up of all kinds of different experiences. From food that you must have tasted to buildings that you must have seen and events that you must have experienced. Some parts are only possible in summer or winter. It is therefore best to look at which parts suit you and your journey. This is how you create your own unique journey and miss nothing during your vacation.
- Visit the beautiful Swedish coast
