Since the devaluation of the Swedish crown, Sweden has become much more affordable, and the simple joys of fresh air, landscape and culture are free. Its forests are starkly beautiful, its lakes giant. Stockholm, the country's capital, is a progressive city with pockets that maintain a village feel. Gothenburg and Malmö beckon with urban delights, and away from the cities, Sweden takes in vast areas of scenic coastline and idyllic islands. The wilderness areas of Norrland have the legendary midnight sun in summer, Arctic Scandinavia's highest mountain and marvellous hiking trails.

Setting Sail in Stockholm

One benefit to catching up with yourself a few weeks on is perhaps that it’s easier to pick the most memorable pieces of each stop to share rather than every detail as it still shines clearly in your mind. Then again what could be said in a few ... Read more >

Sweden's Old Capital: Kalmar

Sat, 8 Sep 2018 | By shire_girl | Views [84]

A short drive to Osterlen brought us to our first stop of the day, Havang. A lovely nature reserve overlooking the sea. This area is peppered with stone circles, neolithic, bronze age tombs and white sandy beaches. The first stone circle of the day was ... Read more >
