    While you may only want to visit a country like Sweden during the summer, there are also many fun activities that are great for travelers in the winter.

    Sweden is located in northern Europe and is a country of culture-filled cities, frozen terrain, and thousands of bridges linking various communities across its more than 200,000 islands.

    The country packs plenty to see and do regardless of whether you visit during winter or summer. Locals love to spend hours outdoors late into the evening during the white nights in summer while taking a dip into the sea. Winter activities range from dog sledding and skiing to catching a glimpse of the northern lights. Regardless of your choice, you’ll find an array of activities for every type of traveler.

    Sweden is well connected to the rest of Europe with nearly every mode of transportation including plane, train, car, bus, and boat. Swedish people speak exceptionally good English especially in the larger cities. Like most of northern Europe, the Swedes watch American television without dubbing so they are exposed to English throughout life from a young age. If you come during summer, you’re sure to find a more lively and vibrant community. Winter is a completely different experience with incredibly short and cold days but winter activities in Sweden are some of the best.

    Sweden offers comfortable accommodations of all types including backpacker hostels, hotels and luxury resorts. Camping is a possibility in the warmer months given the vast amount of forest area. The country even offers up some incredibly unique lodging including tree hotels in the forests and ice hotels in the north.

    Here is a look at some of the adventures that await travelers to Sweden:

    • Take a Baltic cruise from Stockholm and visit Kapellskär and other cities along the Baltic sea
    • Take a lunch boat tour of the Stockholm Archipelago with more than 30,000 islands
    • Visit the north during the winter to see the northern lights
    • Visit Stockholm and gaze at the countless bridges that span the city
    • Take a tour of the old town of Gamla Stan in central Stockholm
    • Explore the Lummelunda Caves in Gotland with spectacular stalactites and stalagmites
    • Visit the excellently well-preserved medieval town at Kattlundsgård
    • Take part in the Midsummer festivals in Stockholm, Gothenburg or the small town of Jarvso
    • Discover the quaint canals, historic area of Haga and Sweden’s largest botanical garden in Gothenburg
    • Spend a night in the Icehotel, the world’s largest hotel made of ice located in Jukkasjärv
    • Experience the Viking and medieval history in the town of Sigtuna
    • Make a visit to Kansen in Stockholm, the world's first open-air museum
    • Visit the island Visby to see the well-preserved medieval structures giving it UNESCO World Heritage Site status
    • Stay at the Tree Hotel, located in Harads in northeast Sweden
