Summer is a great time to discover the road less travelled in Sweden, with lush greenery and warm breezes. Take the opportunity to go off the beaten track, be amazed by the rich history and unassuming cultural experiences, and make sure to enjoy the beautiful coastline and countryside.

Every year during one week in August, Visby serves up a treat with the Medieval Week and this year, the theme is set around medieval horses. So if you travel to Gotland this summer, don’t miss the chance to see the medieval markets, action-packed activities such as jousting and archery competitions, and the island’s own breed of horses, Gotland Russ.

In the charming town Falsterbo, in the southwest corner of Skåne, you can see photos by two of the world’s most famous fashion photographers, Richard Avedon and Herb Ritts, some not previously shown in the Nordic countries. At Falsterbo Photo Art Museum, you can also check out the exhibitions by Gabriel Isak, Johan Lindeberg, Ewa-Mari Johansson, and more.

For a relaxing getaway with wondrous views, head to the Lodge Resort, a romantic hideaway above the treetops. Villa Baro in Östergötland also offers stunning views and one of Sweden’s most famous golf holes, Långa Sjö, Family-run Tofta Manor located on the Tofta peninsula between Gothenburg and Marstrand is ideal for a quiet getaway with family and friends, and for a taste of the sea, Salt & Sill on Tjörn island is home to Sweden’s first ever floating hotel and a renowned seafood restaurant.
