A Nordic dream: Where to go on your 2019 holiday in Sweden
Go north or south, to a city or the wilderness. Sweden boasts cold, stunning winters and sunny, relaxed summers. Here is our guide to the places not to miss if you want to visit Sweden in 2019, be it for wintery landscapes, a spot of culture, or a summer on the beaches around lake Vänern.
Sweden is exceptionally beautiful in winter. Woods appear to be covered in mini crystals as the sunshine breaks through the branches of snow-covered trees, and fields get a soft, white duvet. Add cosy cafés with cinnamon buns, candles aplenty and beautiful lighting in every window, and you will see why a visit to Sweden in the winter can be incredibly soothing for the soul.
