Sweden travel tips

When to visit Sweden

This Scandinavian hot spot offers something for everyone at different times of the year. For travelers looking to take part in local festivities, the best time to visit Sweden is in December. Christmas markets are in full swing during the holiday season. See how the region lights up on our trip, Christmas Markets of Northern Europe: Amsterdam to Stockholm.

Summer is also a fantastic time to visit Sweden, when temperatures are comfortable and days stretch longer and conditions are perfect for outside exploration. During June through early July, Stockholm sees about 18 hours of sunlight daily!

Where to go in Sweden

Sweden is nestled within the Nordic region, which makes it an excellent place to visit on a trip that includes the neighboring Nordic destinations. Our 10-day tour, Highlights of Scandinavia: Sweden, Norway & Denmark, gives you an introduction to each country. If you have two weeks to spare, our Scandinavia: The Capitals & the Fjords tour may be right for you.

Here are some of our favorite places to visit in Sweden:

  • Stockholm: The winding medieval streets and beautiful buildings of the Old Town, locally known as Gamla Stan, are just a few of the capital city’s unique appeals.
  • Uppsala: This ancient city holds the tombs of the first Swedish kings, Scandinavia’s oldest university, and an 800-year-old Gothic cathedral.
  • Lovön Island: This island is just a short ferry ride from Stockholm and is home of the 16th-century Drottningholm Palace, a UNESCO-listed royal residence.

Dining tips for Sweden

Our Sweden vacation packages give you the opportunity to taste traditional cuisine at included meals. A few things you’ll come across here? Smoked salmon and pickled herring served with crisp bread often act as the centerpiece for a smörgåsbord, or Scandinavian buffet. Meatballs accompanied by lingonberry jam are a typical dish, as are open-faced sandwiches.

Another cultural experience you may take part in while on one of our tours to Sweden is fika. This mid-morning and mid-afternoon gathering is a social hour, coffee break, and chance to nibble on pastries or bread, all rolled into one.

Packing tips for Sweden

Packing light is always a good idea when traveling—that’s our recommendation when going on group tours to Sweden, too. One suitcase and one carry-on bag per person is the ideal amount of luggage to aim for. That should be enough to hold everything you need and still allow you to go from place to place with ease.

When it comes to packing clothing for your trip, be sure to check the weather forecast as temperatures vary throughout the year. Layers and comfortable walking sneakers are always a good idea. Don’t worry if you have questions about what to bring on tour—one you’ve reserved one of our trips to Sweden, we’ll send you detailed information about your itinerary, including a packing list!
