Sweden tours are a truly fascinating experience thanks to the breathtaking beauty of the landscape and the warm hospitality of the Swedish people. Whether you plan to visit the country during the cold dark of winter to experience the Aurora Borealis or the peak summer season to hike in the Åre Mountains, there are countless adventures to be had on Sweden tours.
Home to vast swathes of forest, rugged mountain terrain, the beautiful shores of the Baltic Sea, and the frigid expanse of Lappland to the north, Sweden is a breathtaking country that offers so many different landscapes to explore. From cross-country skiing to hiking, biking, and trekking in the wilderness, you will be able to feel the remote nature of the wilderness on these incredible Sweden tours.
When is the Best Time to Visit Sweden?
The best time to visit Sweden if you want to get outside and enjoy nature is during the summer months of May to September. During this window you will not only experience warm and dry weather, but you will also have the most amount of sunlight. The country’s northern location means that even the most southerly parts of the country, like Stockholm, will experience 18 hours of sunlight per day, while the northern parts of the country will experience 24 hours of sunlight!
Conversely, winters are long and cold in Sweden, making the winter months of December to March the best time to visit Sweden if you want to enjoy winter sports like skiing, snowboarding, or snowshoeing. The main thing to contend with during this time will be the lack of sunlight, as 18 hours of darkness can be expected in the southern parts of the country and 24 hours in the very far north - although not many people travel that far!

Sweden Tour Highlights
Swedish Lappland is a province in the far north of the country that is known for having the coldest climate in the country. Lappland is home to the Vindelfjällen Nature Reserve, which is one of the largest in Sweden and is home to a wide variety of plant and animal life that are able to survive the harsh sub-arctic winters. Some parts of Lappland have also been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and many travellers visit the area to experience the Aurora Borealis.
Gamla Stan is the historic Old Town of Stockholm, which dates back to the 13th Century. It consists of narrow alleyways, medieval cobbled streets, and many historic buildings including the Stockholm Palace and the Stockholm Stock Exchange Building. Many of the buildings in Gamla Stan were constructed in the style of North German architecture. It was only as recently as the 1970s that Gamla Stan became a tourist destination, as the area had previously fallen into disrepair before being brought back to its historical glory. Gamla Stan is now one of the most visited places by tourists in Stockholm.
