Tour Ideas

In Sweden, families will have no shortage of options on how to spend their holiday. Our Sweden Winter Holiday tour gives you the chance to enjoy countless bucket list experiences. Plus, there’s also the option to go on a photo excursion with a professional photographer in Abisko National Park.

Whatever you wish to do with your family during your time in Sweden, our experts will be able to craft a break to meet your needs. Each of our tours can be tailored to your own individual preferences. Whether you're interested in getting active in the Swedish wilderness, seeing the sights of the city, or a bit of both, we can ensure you get to go on your dream holiday.

Things to Do

Our tours can be designed to include plenty of free time in your chosen destinations, giving you ample time to explore the area and see the sights you’re most excited about. Stroll the streets of Stockholm to take in the bustling hubbub of this vibrant city. If you wish, you can even opt for a walking tour of Gamla Stan - a compact island home to the city’s old town and royal palace.

In summer, the Scandinavian countries bask in long hours of sunshine. Spend your days hiking through forests, exploring by bike, paddling across lakes in a kayak, or floating along rivers on a timber raft. For the older children in your family, head to the archipelago to sail around rocky islands.

Places to Visit

With its family-friendly museums and proximity to the archipelago, Stockholm is a great base for your family holiday. Visit Skansen, the oldest open-air museum in the world with its own zoo. Take the little ones to the Vasa Museum, where they can gaze in amazement at the world's only preserved 17th-century ship. Or, head to the ABBA Museum, where you can sing all the hits alongside holograms of the band.

Once you’ve finished sightseeing, travel up to northern Sweden for a feast of winter activities. Swedish Lapland becomes a wonderland during the winter season. Visit the Sami people and their reindeer herds, experience husky sledging, stay in an ice hotel or treehouse, and witness the mystical Northern Lights drift across the night sky.
