Sweden

Overview

It’s hard not to fall for this friendly Scandinavian giant. Arctic-cool, a little eccentric and with landscapes so dramatic they inspired a whole mythology, Sweden is one of our favourite places in the world. We’re smitten – and you will be too.

From the Nordic cool of Stockholm and Gothenburg’s boutique hotels and art galleries to arctic adventure in Lapland. And spa & wellness retreats in the outer archipelago to the incomparable Northern Lights itself, we’ve travelled extensively through Sweden to carefully picked our favourite luxury experiences and things to do.

We’ve sent our clients on tailored experiences through the Arctic Circle with its fairytale winter-white landscapes, where the nomadic continue to Sami herd reindeer as they have for centuries. Our clients have enjoyed staying the utterly unique Treehotel in Norrbotten, where they’ve the flickering, soul-stirring aurora borealis from their luxury cabin (or UFO!) up in the pines.

In the south, Lightfoot clients have hung out at Stockholm’s hippest waterfront restaurants and bars, enjoying famously fresh and carefully sourced cuisine of the capital. Remember to check out the district of Södermalm, well-known for its vintage and independent fashion boutiques.

But our Travel Designers’ real love for the south is ignited by its remarkable historical remnants, some straight from Viking legends and lore. Southern Sweden has nearly 300 castles and gardens, with evocative sites like Skate’s medieval churches and ancient runic stones that back to 10th century Viking life.

To begin your luxury Sweden holiday, contact our experienced Travel Designer team. Equipped with local knowledge and international perspective we can organise what you want, how you want it, when you want it, with priceless insights and a concierge service exclusive to Lightfoot clients.
