Overview

Leigh Landis, our Sweden expert has been recognized as the expert in travel to Sweden by  Wendy Perrin and is a Wendy Perrin Wow Trusted Travel Expert.

Leigh's knowledge of Sweden, and of Scandinavia, is invaluable when planning a trip to this famously expensive region. Leigh can maximize your time and utilize the most cost effective methods of travel within the region. 

The Kingdom of Sweden is famed around the world for its high quality of life and standard of living. This can also be enjoyed by all visitors, even on a short visit!

There is a lot of choice on the Swedish smorgasbord – take your pick from fairy-tale castles like Drottingholm, the ABBA museum, thickly forested island landscapes, or simple sit back and relax and enjoy a fika (a moment of bread breaking/coffee sipping/merry making/cozy couching all rolled together that is uniquely Swedish).

There’s more to Swedish design than IKEA and H&M – Swedish fashion brands rule the roost in trendy Stockholm. Artistic blown glass is another Swedish stand-by. Gastronomy has its own motifs and an icy shot of Vodka is never far away. Culinary delights like the meatball in traditional kitchens make room for exquisite seafood at edgy, upmarket establishments.

From Ingmar Bergman to Pippi Longstocking and in recent times The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, the Swedish perspective has always been prominent in pop-culture through the ages. Peel back the many layers of Sweden with Exeter International and get closely acquainted with this fascinating country.

Best time To Go

 

The Scandinavian climate is colder than continental Europe. The best time to visit Sweden for fine weather is May to September. If you want to see the Northern lights or enjoy Swedish Lapland activities, then of course winter a perfect time to travel to Sweden and stay in the atmospheric Ice Hotel.

Insider's Guide

Where to Travel in Sweden

Built on 14 islands where Lake Malaren flows in to the Baltic Sea, Stockholm has much to offer, whatever your interests.

Gamla Stan, the charming old town, is home to the Royal Palace with its extraordinary armory. Charming boutiques and restaurants line the cobbled streets. For some real local flavor, we highly recommend an afternoon in Södermalm (voted Europe’s coolest neighborhood by Vogue) meandering around the galleries, vintage stores and the ‘Sofo’ area.

Take a day trip to the Versailles of the North, the UNESCO Drottningholm Palace. The Palace has been home of the Swedish Royal Family since the 17th century and its wing continues to be their residence to this day!
