Visiting Tips

Travel May – September

Have you ever witnessed the midnight sun? You can in Sweden! From the end of May through mid-July, the sun remains above the horizon 24/7 in the northern part of the country. Although summer is the busiest and most expensive time of year– this phenomenon is worth witnessing! Keep in mind that summer is the rainy season, so pack an umbrella!  Prefer the northern lights phenomenon? Plan your trip for January through March and pack warm– the high temperatures hover around freezing in the winter.


About Sweden

The Scandinavian nation of Sweden spans 14 islands and is known for minimalistic design (looking at you IKEA), pop stars (hey there, ABBA and Avicii), and the “world’s longest art exhibition,” located inside the Stockholm metro system.  See the city of Stockholm from a different perspective with a rooftop hike, then take your taste buds on an adventure by trying a Swedish classic– fried strömming (herring).
