- Luxury hotels in Sweden really depend on where you are setting up has your base. The majority are within the major city centres such as Stockholm, and close to the country’s excellent ski resorts. So you’ll have access to fantastic amenities whether you’re taking a city break or an adventure holiday. If you are taking a Sweden culinary package, you will find the country’s cuisine to be predominantly rustic, simple and tasty — often based around meat or fish and potatoes. There are several speciality dishes such as meatballs, pea soup, gravlax and crayfish, which are known throughout the world but, if you are feeling adventurous, you should try surströmming — fermented herring which has to be eaten outdoors because of the incredibly pungent smell.
- If you’re looking for historic towns and cities, your visit should definitely take in the likes of Stockholm, Uppsala, Karskrona and Visby. There are also several UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the country, including the mines and mills of Falun and Fagersta, southern Stockholm’s Woodland Cemetery, the Struve Meridian Arch at Norrbotten and Halland’s Grimetown Radio Masts.
- If you fancy a more active holiday, however, you can also hit the ski slopes, go ice skating, take to the trails with hiking, cycling and horse riding, or make a splash with sailing and canoeing. Whatever the season, there’s always some kind of outdoor activity available. This includes wildlife spotting and, at various times of the year, you can go on tours to look for elk, brown bears, wolves and beavers. You can even go freshwater fishing, or head out to sea for a spot of ocean fishing.
- Shopping is at its best in the likes of Stockholm and Gothenburg, and you can find a range of well-known international chains, quaint independent retailers and designer boutiques and department stores.
