If you’re looking for art, history and culture alongside a healthy dose of nature, Sweden city breaks provide a beautiful balance. Spend a weekend in the watery European capital of Stockholm and spend your days strolling through the many museums and galleries, before jumping on a boat for a sunset cruise around some of the surrounding islands (a guided tour will help you choose some favourites from the whopping 30,
000 islands that make up the archipelago). Next, head into the old town of Gamla Stan where you can explore cobbled streets and find a cosy nook for a traditional Swedish supper. For an alternative Sweden city break, head west to Gothenburg which has a quieter but equally exciting atmosphere. It’s the ideal place for an active weekend in the city, with kayaking, boating and walking right on your doorstep, plus plenty of opportunities to explore further afield. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, there are some incredible eateries to choose from whether you’re after magnificent Michelin-star cuisine or simpler seasonal recipes that showcase hand-foraged ingredients picked straight from the wilds of Sweden’s west coast.
