The world has already welcomed all things Swedish with open arms, from chic Scandi furniture and ABBA to slick cars and oat milk lattes. So, it seems only fair that keen travellers should embrace it during the colder season too, with a Nordic escape. Sweden February holidays still offer swathes of snow and wintry traditions, as well as plenty of snow-dusted forests and navy hued archipelagos to snap. Journey north towards the famed Lapland, where you can snowmobile and bask in the beauty of Abisko National Park; plan a slick city getaway to Stockholm, spent exploring the old town before skating
your way across the Kungsträdgården; and hunt for the otherworldly Northern Lights which ripple their way across the night sky when the conditions are just right. Whether you’re keen to see all things snow covered or are just craving a city escape, Sweden February holidays won’t disappoint.

Discover the wonders of Sweden February holidays, from snow covered plains glistening under the changing colours of the Northern Lights to frozen lakes and Stockholm escapes. There’s so much to be explored and appreciated across this Nordic nation.
Fall in Love with Stockholm
City lovers rejoice; Sweden’s capital is packed with Scandinavian charm. Discover the compact island of Gamla Stan, with its cobbled labyrinth of streets filled with colourful 17th- and 18th-century buildings, visit the famous city hall and ice skate around the Kungsträdgården. Come evening, treat yourself to some hearty Nordic cuisine to silence stomach rumblings. From Michlin starred eateries to Swedish street food vendors offering halv (Swedish hot dogs) on the go, there’s something for all palates.
Lap up the Beauty of Lapland
Lapland is an otherworldly realm of frozen lakes, grazing reindeers and snow laden landscapes that reflect the bright sunlight. You can uncover the ancient traditions of the Sami, ski to your heart’s content and catch the wonders of the Northern Lights (if you’re lucky!), marvelling at the interchanging greens, violets and reds dance across the star-studded skyline. You could also spent your Sweden February holidays journeying towards the Artic Circle’s ‘aurora zone’ (where Lapland lies) which offers an even better chance of spotting this bucket-list phenomenon.
Visit the Northernmost Swedish City of Kiruna
Experience the Midnight Sun and Sweden’s highest mountain, Kebnekaise, with a city break to Kiruna. Surrounded by deep forests and expansive marshes, the northernmost Swedish city of Kiruna offers an escape from the thrum of the city with countless lakes, rivers and mountains where you can hike, fly fish and snowshoe. Of course, Sweden February holidays don’t have to be all snow and no play, with plenty of shops and sightseeing to enjoy too. You can even discover Kiruna on a plate - we’re talking lots of local produce and ingredients harvested from nature, like the king of Swedish caviar, Kalix löjrom, and Arctic char.
