Get a taste for Northern Europe with a trip to Sweden | Travel

Holidaying is something many of us look forward to each year. If you’re an experienced traveller, you’ll most likely have a system in place for when you go away. Things like, choosing your destination and packing your essentials will be second-nature to you. But how about a change this time? How about holidaying somewhere you’ve never been before? Step out of your comfort zone and open your mind.
Sweden is a country of outstanding natural beauty and serenity. It’s Northern Europe’s most sparsely populated country. This allows you to enjoy peaceful, picturesque surroundings. If you’ve never visited Sweden before now is the perfect chance to do so. There’s so much on offer for those with wanderlust. Whatever you enjoy doing there’s no doubt Sweden will have something to offer you.
View the Northern Lights
One of the things Sweden is most famous for is the historic Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis. This is the name for a breath-taking natural light display visible in the skies of the Northern Hemisphere. There are packages dedicated to enhancing your experience viewing the Aurora Borealis in Sweden. This is an unprecedented, once in a lifetime opportunity you can’t let pass you by. Make sure you go visit the acclaimed Northern Lights as one of the first things you do when you reach Sweden.
Go Ice Fishing
If you’re looking for a practical experience on your holiday, that’s also packed full of culture, then try ice fishing. This is the process of fishing through a hole in the ice, and it’s a very popular pastime in Sweden. This is a very hands-on experience, and it doesn’t necessarily require special equipment. There will no doubt be opportunities for local ice fishing expeditions. So make sure you enquire about this, it’s an important experience to have.
Whale Watching
Of course, no trip to Scandinavia would be complete without a whale watching tour. How often do you get the chance to be up close and personal with these majestic creatures? This is the ultimate way to observe whales in their natural habitat. You’ll have the option to go with group tours, or to choose a more intimate, customised tour. If you want to open your mind and experience all that Sweden has to offer a whale watching tour is an absolute must.

Visit Stockholm
When you’re in Sweden, you’d be remiss if you didn’t make plans to visit Stockholm, the nation’s capital. Sweden is such a diverse country, and Stockholm will provide you with plenty to do away from the icy tundra’s. For instance, you might decide to venture into medieval Stockholm and take in the most ancient part of this wonderful city. Then, of course, you might decide you want to sample some of the local cuisines, before taking a ferry ride to the archipelago.
Whatever your holidaying persuasion, there’s no doubt Sweden has plenty to offer you. You’ll be able to enjoy the delight and culture of a big city like Stockholm. However, you’ll also get to experience some of the great, snowy wide open, with visits to the Northern Lights, etc.
