It's why we travel.

LEARN MORE

Sweden has many different stories to tell. The mainland offers mountains, forests and lakes, but Sweden also has hundreds of thousands of islands off its coasts. The country has a wonderfully diverse sampling of architectural sites that range from royal palaces to the modest homes of fishermen. No matter where you look you will find beauty, but the most spectacular sights are the midnight sun and the northern lights.

Destination Must-See's

Sweden ms1

Vasa Museum:

On tour, visit the Vasa Ship Museum to see a perfectly preserved example of a 17th century ship. Studying the craftsmanship of the vessel provides a great foundation for understanding the long-standing building tradition in a region that employs simple and practical design. On your travels you’ll notice that much of that same craftsmanship infuses Scandinavian architecture today as it has throughout history.

Sweden ms2

Stockholm Archipelago:

Stockholm is sometimes called the “Venice of the North” because there’s water everywhere. There are 30,000 islands that lie in Stockholm’s spectacular archipelago. Some islands are occupied, and have red and yellow timber houses on them for summer residents, but many are still just as nature created them.

The Northern Lights

October through March is the best time to get a chance to see the famous Aurora Borealis, also known as the Northern Lights. It’s mother nature’s most stunning light show and an absolute treat to see if you’re lucky enough to get the chance.

Sweden ms4

The Midnight Sun:

Travellers visiting from May to July will experience what it’s like first hand to live in a place where the sun never sets. The intensity of the sun varies depending on fog or clouds, but it can be seen for nearly 24 hours a day during the warmer months.
