Dotted with picturesque medieval villages, tranquil lakes, lush forests, coastal island archipelagos and cosmopolitan cities, sightseeing in Sweden is anything but dull. With some of the cleanest air in the world, take a deep breath, hop on board a ferry and take a day out in one of Sweden's countless parks and enjoy a picnic.

Head north to explore the icy tundra and UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Laponian area in Lappland and sample some reindeer steaks, marvel at the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis), and explore the Ice Hotel which is sculpted each year by the Sami people in the winter months.

Head south to the capital of Stockholm, boasting more than a dozen islands to explore by day cruise, a wonderful arts and nightlife scene and ocean fishing from the heart of the city. Visit the quaint Gamla Stan (old town), a maze of narrow cobbled-stone streets shaded by historic houses circling Royal Castle where Swedish royalty has resided since the 13th century, or explore the canals of Gothenburg. The west coast and its fishing villages is the place for seafood lovers while culture vultures will be smitten with Uppsala, the ancient Viking city where the newest buildings date from the 18th century and boasts more than 150 museums.

The summer months are the most popular time to visit Sweden, but this truly is a year-round destination, short on sunlight as the winter months may be. With a wealth of attractions and breathtakingly beautiful historical sites, it will take visitors a few weeks if not months to touch the tip of the iceberg of what this magical country has to offer.
