There's a lot more to Sweden than Stockholm and Lapland. We particularly recommend the charms of holidays to Gothenburg, the country's second city, and the beautiful west coast archipelago of some 8,000 islands. To many outside Sweden this is secret Scandinavia, and long may that last - it's an area made special by its wide open spaces inhabited by a small population, the downright beautiful scenery and the range of wholesome activities on offer. Add in enough culinary highlights to sate the appetite of the most demanding of gastronauts and Gothenburg holidays are the perfect way to settle into a slower pace of life.
Explore the second city, and then take off on a West Coast Sweden road trip. When the summer sun shines, spend your days hopping from one small fishing village to another, kayaking and wonderful seafood platters and traditional fish dishes from well-worn family recipes using freshly-caught-that-morning produce. Extending from the Norwegian border on the west coast, to Gothenburg in the south, this archipelago of Swedish islands offers a relaxed getaway to nature. From the upmarket resort of Marstrand to Sweden’s first marine national park - Kosterhavet - in the Koster Islands, these islands have something for everyone, alongside buckets of charm and a warm and lively atmosphere.
