Summer is nearly upon us and the days will stretch longer. The season holds promise of life, light, and breathtaking beauty. In Sweden, this means picture-perfect landscapes, lush greenery, vibrant wildflowers, and tranquil lakes that reflect the sky.

This is a great time of year to delve into Sweden’s rich heritage and explore the extraordinary historic castles and manor houses, hear compelling stories and mysteries that might have occurred there hundreds of years ago, and discover the many secret nooks and crannies.

Go for a stroll in the idyllic gardens surrounding the estates, or why not explore the flora and fauna in one of the inspiring botanical gardens, such as the ones in Gothenburg and Uppsala. Perhaps the summery vibe puts you in the mood to check out a museum you haven’t been to yet, or revisit a favourite one where there’s a new exciting exhibition that moves your senses.

Of course, this is also the time to enjoy open-air concerts, theatre performances and festivals. And let’s not forget, all the things you can do in the great outdoors. Come rain or shine, the long daylight hours are known to transform the country into a playground for outdoor enthusiasts, with endless opportunities for exploration and relaxation.
