World Journeys Countries

The vibrant city of Stockholm is a great introduction to beautiful Sweden. Discover the city’s Scandinavian style or try world renowned cuisine on a walking tour. To truly see Sweden we recommend getting out of the city and exploring the natural beauty this country has to offer. From rocky islands, and frozen landscapes to densely forested National Parks and the spectacle of the Northern Lights, Sweden’s natural beauty is breath-taking.  Add to this Viking ruins, ancient castles, fascinating indigenous cultures and a burgeoning foodie scene, and you have a truly rounded destination.

High season runs from mid-June to August as midsummer means warmer weather. The weather is still nice in the shoulder season from September to October but there are a lot less tourists around (some of the tourism spots are closed but the rest will be a lot less busy). The low season from November to May is the best time for winter sports, Northern Lights spotting and fantastic Christmas markets.

Language Swedish is the official language, however Finnish, Sami dialects, and English are also spoken. The majority of Swedes are fluent in English.

Weather Summer runs from June to August, autumn from September to October/November, winter from November/December to March/February, and spring from March/April to May. The weather varies from north to south, with the north bringing much colder, sub-zero temperatures, and the south a much more mild climate.

Social customs and quirks Swedes dislike arguing and avoid discussions of more private matters such as money and family. In Sweden, many customs are associated with the seasons. Summer is celebrated as the winters are long and dark, and several traditional festivities are linked with the farming year – planting in spring, the hunting and fishing season, and harvest time.

Festivals and events  Sweden is home to numerous fascinating festivals, the vast majority of which take place in summer – particularly August. Kulturkalaset is one of the biggest cultural festivals in Scandinavia, where the streets of Gothenburg are transformed into festival stages where a variety of fascinating performances take place – all free of charge.
