I have planned a trip to watch the Northern Lights (hopeful!) in mid-December.

Would love some guidance on how to get to Abisko from Stockholm and back.

Also alternatives to watching the Aurora Borealis from Sweden are most welcome!

Thanks in advance.

PS - how much is my lack of Swedish a problem?

I have posted a similar appeal on the Denmark site. My wife and I are flying into Copenhagen in 4 days. We decided at the last minute to rent a car and find a beach town in Northern Denmark or Southwest Sweden for 3 days. 2 to 3 hours drive max. Any suggestions would be helpful. Quiet is better. Thanks.

Hey guys!

I wanted to get some advice about day trips in to the Stockholm archipelago. There are so many options, obviously, and it's hard to tell which one is the best place to go! I'm looking for somewhere that has an authentic vibe, rather than uber touristy. I'd love to be able to hike, bike, and possibly swim. I've been looking at Moja, Gallno, Svartso, and Finnhamn as possibilities. I'd appreciate any help!

I'm hiking the Kungsleden from Abisko to Kvikkjokk.
I thought about going through Sarek and climbing one of the mountains, but couldn't find many trails.

Would you recommend it?
Is there a possibly for muddy soil at the end of August?
Do you know of any resources I can use to plan this trip?

My idea is drawn here

Hi all,

I'll be going to the south of sweden during the first two week of August. Traveling there by car and want to camp around.

When I look at campsites in that area, a lot seem like they are large and for families. Does anyone have tips of smaller, more nature campsites in that area? Possible by the beach.

Thanks!

Hi there, I will be sailing on my 27feet yacht from Arkösund to Gotland and then sail around for some days there and then back to the mainland. Could need some help like watch keeping, the crossing will take not more than 20 hours but anyhow, if anyone will join it would be nice. The boat sleeps four. Start around July 6th. Costs 10 euro per person incl food, harbour fees etc. No alcohol while sailing of course. No experience needed, only positive attitude. All safety equipment provided.

Hello,
I had planned to hike the Kungsleden in Sweden in July and have already got flights in/out of Stockholm. However, my boyfriend is now also coming to Sweden for 8 days. He's not as into remote multi-day hikes as I am. He is pretty fit, but doesn't relish the idea of hiking with a heavy rucksack on his back the whole time. Experience tells me that we can travel much lighter and quicker if we buy food as we go. We can be even lighter if we stay in refuges rather than camp (although I prefer…

In September, we will be spending the first part of our 10 day trip to Sweden in Stockholm. We end up at Wenngarns Castle in Situna for one night (Thursday) for a business event on Friday. That leaves us with 3 nights left (Fri, Sat & Sun) before we fly out of ARN Monday morning. Any advice on where we should go/stay for those last three nights? We will not have a car. The castle looks nice for maybe another night on Friday, but it doesn't look like there is a lot to do in that area to stay…

Here is my itinerary for our (3adults) December trip and I would appreciate very much some feed-back for the Sweden part of it, as it is not easy to figure out what is interesting and do-able in December (as every site offers summer ideas). I’m not sure about everything with boats: do the lakes freeze in December? How to you get for example to Birka?
We like city as much as nature, but Stora Karlsö in December (I love birds, but will they be there- probably no, but is it nice there anyway?)
I…
