In Stockholm, visit the old town, browse the design shops, admire the masterpieces at the Museum of Modern Art and take the time for a fika break, the Swedish version of a coffee break enjoyed at any time of day, anywhere and, depending on the place and time, consisting of a pastry, savoury snack, fruit juice or coffee. But above all, it's about taking the time to chat and relax. In the north, explore the red rocks of the UNESCO World Heritage-listed High Coast and, in Lapland, fish for salmon in the midnight sun, hunt the northern lights through the endless winter night, or go hiking with a Sami guide. In the west, kayak among the thousand islands of the Bohuslan archipelago. In the south, discover fishing villages, chic seaside resorts and a string of islands:
the old town of Visby on the island of Gotland, Oland, known as the island of sun and winds, or the surreal-looking rocks on the island of Faro. Further inland, Scania is another must-see, with its medieval castles, mansions and churches. Here (and actually pretty much everywhere in Sweden), experience man and nature living in harmony.
