With thousands of coastal islands and inland lakes, Sweden is a hidden gem for travelers looking to experience Scandinavia. Explore historic towns and villages such as Eksjö, Lappstaden, Lund, Öland, and Sigtuna, the country’s oldest town. Wander your way through the scenic countryside or visit the lively capital of Stockholm. Stockholm provides countless museums, restaurants and city exploration options in one of the most architecturally unique cities in the world. Take a tour of the famed 13th-century Storkyrkan Cathedral or visit the Vasa Museum, a maritime museum that displays the world’s only fully intact and salvaged 17th-century ship.
Don’t forget to visit in the winter months and take in the Northern Lights. Relax in glacial luxury at the famed ICEHOTEL in Northern Sweden, the world’s first, largest hotel built of snow and ice situated in Jukkasjärvi—a small village in northern Sweden with 1,100 residents and 1,000 dogs. This constantly evolving work of art features five different categories of rooms, ranging from the standard to spectacular luxury suites.
