Hi, I am from the very south of Sweden and would like to see the northern lights in Lapland in February next year. I have the impression that the easiest/best way is to fly to Abisko. Am also considering the Ice hotel, Jukkasjärvi, dog sleigh rides. Does anyone have good tips, things not to miss but also things to skip?
I'm sure there have been many questions about the best and least expensive way to get to Stockholm from the airport. I happened upon some suggestions but they were from awhile ago. There seems to have been some changes (construction?)and was hoping for some updated recommendations for the end of May travel....??????
I'm thinking about traveling Sweden on a north-south route from Abisko to Stockholm this summer,
end of June, beginning of July and I'll be traveling on my own. I read that accommodation is booked
out during summer quite far ahead, but I thought maybe there is some more flexibility for a single traveler?
What are your recommendations? Could I just call a hostel on the same day I'd arrive or is it necessary to book
Thanks for your advice.
I will attend a conference at Gothenburg (June 8-11) and I'm now planning for a post-conference trip to Stockholm (June 12-14). My interests are lying in cultures (both city and rural cultures) and history of Sweden, and perhaps a picturesque town as an excursion.
I've visited Sweden twice. The first time was an excursion to Helsingborg during my Copenhagen trip (took the ferry from Helsingor and went for a 2-hour walk). The second time was a business trip at Vaxjo for one week, plus a…
My name is Max Green and I'm planning to hike Kungsleden this June.
One thing I couldn't understand from all the tourist guides and the info from the web: where are the exit point on this trail?
I mean, towns or villages with public transportation, if any?
Thanks in advance,
We are a young couple travelling with my inlaws to stockholm for 5 nights if not more. Maybe flexible with a couple of more nights but wish to spend some time in te countryside and in the city as well.
We land at the arlanda airport in july and then I was thinking of doing sigtuna and uppsala for 2 nights and then move on to stockholm for 3 nights. Is upssala worth doing ? Or should I skip it entirely and just do sigtuna as a day trip from stockholm ? Also which district/city/town is…
I'll be traveling to Stockholm in August with my husband and son (who will be almost 2 at that point). We'd like to also spend 2 or so days in a vacation house on one of the islands - someplace really scenic to get some fresh air, perhaps with a small village that isn't too touristy. But with 20,000+ islands, I have no idea where to start! Does anyone have recommendations? It shoudn't be more than 2 hours away (ideally much less), since we'll be traveling with a toddler. Bonus points if you can…
My 2 friends and I plan to travel to Sweden next February 2016. These are the activities we want to do and are wondering where to base ourselves-Northern Sweden Im assuming but which city/town?As we wont have a car ourselves,we need a base where we can easily do tours from.
Dog sled,Reindeer sled,Northern lights tour(will be lucky to see these I know..),snowmobile & either stay in an ice hotel or visit one or an Ice/Snow bar.
Any reliable tour operators recommended that we should book these…
