If there’s one thing we’ve learnt over the past almost two years, it’s that nature goes a long way. The good news is that, as things start to look up – or at least a lot safer – we can enjoy all the beauty nature has to offer together with the people we’ve missed most throughout lockdowns and isolation spells. And better still: you get to experience it all in a different guise, in a different place.

Your bucket list may be filling up, but allow us to help with some insider’s tips. Sweden is full to the brim of awe-inspiring winter activities, whether you’re looking for adventure and the most extreme of environments or all you want is to relax in front of an open fire after a luxurious massage. In fact, this long country up north has so much to offer visitors that it can be hard to choose – but we’ve got something for all likes and preferences.

Want to go skiing while keeping half an eye on emails, or head somewhere along with the kids as well as their friends? Perhaps you’d like to learn about the Sami heritage and meet a reindeer up close? Or how about a luxurious hotel with traditional fare and quiet treks through glistening landscapes? As a vast country with a varied landscape, Sweden offers all of the above and more.

During a trip to Sweden, you can be sure that you won’t just sleep soundly and get well fed, but you’ll be cared for with exceptional service and perfectly functional and beautiful design – all while surrounded by unspoiled nature and a well-maintained cultural heritage.

From family-friendly destinations to hotspots for thrill-seekers and naturally stunning havens for peace and quiet, we list our favourite destinations in Sweden for a trip to remember next year.
