Frequently asked questions

Your packing list will vary a lot depending on the time of year you plan to travel so best to do some specific research once you’ve settled on dates. As a general guide, in summer you will need light, breathable clothes, while in winter, you’ll need quality winter clothes including a hat, gloves and a good coat. Hot tip – Sweden is also known for its beautiful outdoor scenery and walkable cities, so some comfortable shoes are worth their weight in gold.

We could fill a book just on this answer alone! Start in Sweden’s capital and largest city Stockholm, which is known for its charming Old Town, museums and scenic waterways. Gothenburg is a coastal city with a laid-back village vibe and a seriously drool-inducing foodie scene, Swedish Lapland in the far north lures adventure seekers and is where you will find the Northern Lights, while at the other end of the spectrum is Gotland, an island in the Baltic Sea which is popular for beach days and water sports.

The best time to visit Sweden depends on your interests and the side of Sweden you hope to discover. Summer (June to August) is the most popular time to visit with long sun-soaked days for hiking, biking and swimming. Fall or Autumn (September to November) is beautiful as the country is bathed in a warm amber glow; winter (December to February) isn’t for the faint-hearted but offers some excellent skiing, skating and snowmobiling. If you’re lucky, you might be able to spy the Northern Lights.

Lace up your walking shoes and explore the cities by foot, meander from museum to art gallery and off to lunch, head for the mountains for a spot of hiking, do a little stargazing in the wilderness, sample Swedish cuisine, hit up a festival or just get wonderfully lost wandering around the cities. You could spend a year here and still not run out of things to see, do and devour.
