Sweden

Country Flag

With so much to do for first timers from dog sledding, snow mobiling, hover crafting, ice sculpting, snow biking, ice fishing, snow shoeing, dinner on ice, cross country skiing, sledging, hiking, wildlife viewing, photography and city breaks, there is something for all travellers and every family member.

Sweden is the largest of the Nordic countries, with an area twice the size of Britain (approximately the same size as California), yet its population is low at just over 9 million people. It is a vast and breath-taking land of green forest, snow-capped mountains, vast wilderness and abundant wildlife.

One of Sandgrouse Travel’s favourite spots is Swedish Lapland in Northern Sweden. Referred to as the land of 8 seasons where it can be -40ºC in winter and +30ºC in summer, your midnight sun awaits. The Aurora Sky Station in the Abisko National Park is purpose built for viewing the greatest light show on earth, the Northern Lights – The Aurora Borealis. 

Accommodation in Swedish Lapland is fun and exciting with a range of lodges and hotels to capture your imagination. World-renowned names such as Tree Hotel and Ice Hotel are popular choices, with smaller boutique lodges such as Pine Bay Lodge offering great alternatives.

WHY VISIT SWEDEN? HOW ABOUT SOME OF THESE EXCITING IDEAS:

  • Snowmobile safari across the frozen pack ice of the Bothnian Sea and through the tranquil pine forests of Swedish Lapland.
  • Stay with the children in a UFO on the banks of the Lule River.
