Sweden Holidays

Sweden finds the perfect balance between time-honoured tradition and cutting-edge cool. It’s a place where you’ll find cherry-red wooden houses and minimalist Scandi-style hotels. Where you can tuck into still-warm cinnamon buns or Michelin-starred meals. And where vast Viking museums stand almost side-by-side with contemporary galleries.

The jewel in Sweden’s crown is undoubtedly Stockholm. It’s one of Europe’s loveliest capital cities, built on a cluster of islands in the ink-blue waters of Lake Mälaren. The old town (Gamla Stan) is pretty as a picture, with mustard-hued houses and quaint cobbled lanes, while the picturesque islands of the Stockholm archipelago are also worth a look.

Stockholm aside, Sweden is home to some a host of small cities and coastal towns, such as medieval Visby, cultural Gothenburg and charm-filled Malmö. Many of them make ideal jumping-off points for discovering a little of the country’s unspoilt wilderness (it’s easy to escape the crowds – this is one of the world’s least densely populated countries).

No-fly cruises to Scandinavia

Our cruise holidays to Sweden tend to be no-fly cruises, so you’ll set sail from UK shores. You’ll still receive our VIP door-to-door travel service – it’ll take you to the port departure area rather than an airport.

Some itineraries sail around Scandinavia, stopping at Denmark, Norway and Finland. Others include the Baltics, with time in fairytale Tallinn and Gothic Riga. St Petersburg is often a highlight on Baltics cruises, so most will include an overnight stop, allowing you more time to explore this wonderful city.
