Things to do in Sweden

Reindeer in Swedish Lapland
Whether it’s hiking across Lapland under the midnight sun or nibbling a cinnamon roll in Malmö, our specialists have hand-picked the best ways for you to experience Sweden’s culture and landscapes. They can arrange for local guides who are experts in their field to accompany you as you uncover the history, culture, and wildlife of the places you visit.

You might take a food-themed walking tour of Stockholm, tasting smoked reindeer and fresh crayfish as you go, kayak through Lapland’s stark landscapes along the Lule River, or stroll the oldest street in Sweden on a tour of Sigtuna, where you can see the world’s largest concentration of runestones. There’s also the chance to meet the indigenous Sámi people, who’ll show you how they lasso reindeer and drive a sled.
