Luxury Vacations in Sweden

From the frozen wastelands of Lapland to the stylish cities of Stockholm and Gothenburg, the dense forests of the mainland to the rocky islands of the archipelago, Sweden is an enchanting country. A luxury vacation to this Scandinavian giant offers a wilderness and adventure alongside history and cosmopolitan cities.

The cool Nordic cities of Stockholm and Gothenburg are a great place to start your Swedish adventures. Blending rich cultural history with contemporary elegance, the old cobblestone streets buzz with art galleries, designer boutiques and restaurants.

To fully appreciate Sweden’s charms, head into the wilderness. Stockholm is the perfect place for a journey into the archipelago. Sail around the myriad of islands and tiny islets to discover rocky coves, uninhabited islands and ancient villages. Indulge in a spa and wellness retreat on a remote island. Go fishing, and try your hand at the Swedish pastime of foraging, or simply relax on deck.

For a true Arctic adventure, head to Lapland. In summer, this beguiling place serves up forests, crystal-clear lakes and the glow of the midnight sun. In winter, it turns into a winter wonderland. Visit the Sami reindeer herders and watch as the Northern Lights dance across the sky.

Enhance your trip to Sweden by delving into its Viking past. Ancient rune stones dot the landscape, alongside burial mounds and Viking ruins, which are all part of a fascinating mythology.
