Are you looking to surprise someone special, or are you simply tired of tourist traps and all the obvious bucket-list attractions? We have collected together some independent vineyards, charming inns, traditional towns and untouched eco-havens for a romantic getaway or relaxing weekend break off the beaten track.


At close to 174,000 square miles, Sweden is the third-largest country in the European Union by area, and with a population of just under ten million, it is safe to say that Sweden boasts a great deal of just that: space. In addition to deep woods, rolling hills and high mountains with no villages as far as the eye can see, there are beautiful castles with vast, landscaped grounds, cultural experiences out in nature, and plenty of opportunities to go for a swim – alone in the nude in a peaceful lake, or together with other explorers at well-maintained destinations.

If you are visiting Sweden with your special someone and want that silver lining, or just hope to get off the beaten track and get an insider’s view of the most memorable hidden gems of Sweden, this special theme is for you. We have listed our favourite manors, the most tranquil and relaxing destinations, and, of course, some of the most delicious food and drink too. Read on to find the perfect location for your next restful break in Sweden.
