Hi guys!

I am doing a study abroad programme in Stockholm with my university. This means that i will be living in the city for 5 months.

Are there any experts on Stockholm around that can tell me the best things to see/do?
Or just any top tips at all?

I'll be there for a long time so I won't just want to see the touristy stuff

Thanks :)

Hello,
I am planning a trip to Sweden this summer. I will be driving from Belgium so would prefer to stay in the South, within two hours of Malmo, to limit the length of the drive.

I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for campsites in this area. Ideally, I am after a beautiful location with good sanitation facilities and somewhere to swim, either the sea or a lake.

We are also very keen to see moose. Is it possible to spot wild moose this far south?

Any ideas gratefully received…

Hello there,

I would like to inform you about the upcoming release of the web documentary series fika: to have coffee, which might be of interest to you.

In six episodes, the series will make an attempt at portraying the popular Swedish ritual fika, a small but essential part of the country's coffee culture and day-to-day life.
Instead of following a classic documentary approach, the series intends to be more about the people and give an insight into Swedish society, it wants to tell the little…

Hi,

My father and I are planning a 'bonding' trip through Sweden (please translate as 'I needed a second driver so I forced him to come with me'). This is not so much a tourism trip but rather we have to drive to Pitea to collect something and bring it home. This will mean we will be travelling with a trailer. I have done some research but just need confirmation and your expert advice.

  1. Bridges: Considering crossing the Bridge(s)from Denmark, are they open 24h/24h? Are there any other…

Hello!

This summer I'll be flying to Sweden and spending about 5 days doing 60 or so miles on the trail. I found this very helpful website http://www.hogakusten.com/en/hk/high-coast-trail.html with break downs of each trail section. I was just wondering if anyone had hiked this section of Sweden before and had any further insight. Is it mostly trail or is a lot of it along the road? Anything I should be sure not to miss as I explore this part of Sweden?

Hi, there was a really handy post last year asking about 6 days on the Kings Trail.
My question is about.......much less time than that!
If we only have 3 or 4 days, is there anything at all that we can do, or am I being ridiculous?
Also, this will be mid June, around the 15th, will any huts be open then. My research suggests "no".

thanks a lot :)

Hello folks. Does anyone know where in Oslo and Stockholm to find postings of local events? In the states,
postings would be at the library or community centers - I wonder where they might be in Norway and Sweden, in Oslo and Stockholm specifically. Local events like poetry readings, or authors reading excerpts, or local music groups, to name a few. Any advice along these lines is appreciated

Hi there - I plan to take a boat tour (Stromma cruises) to the Stockholm archipelago on June 25, and I'd like to ask those people in the know about how a boat tour might be different on mid-summer day (June 25) compared to other days. I'm considering taking a tour to Sandhamn or a shorter tour to Vaxholm or a shorter tour without a stop at all. Is it better to go to Sandhamn or Vaxholm, or better to not make a stop at all? If I stop on an island, will it be too crowded? or closed down? or just…
