Or rent a bike and enjoy a refreshing bike trip, while taking in spectacular views of… well any part of Sweden. When you travel to Sweden in the summer, don‘t be surprised to see groups of people playing Kubb – a traditional game, which is widely popular all across Sweden – and feel free to join in, it‘s quite usual to do so.

Feeling the magic in Stockholm

Probably the most amazing thing you will see during any of the Sweden tours is, of course, one of the most beautiful cities in the world – Stockholm.

Despite Stockholm being quite big, almost everything you need to visit is reachable by foot.

Swedish cuisine – nothing like you tasted before

When you visit Sweden, it will soon become apparent why the Swedish cuisine is so unique and peculiar. Since the weather in Sweden is usually harsh and there isn‘t a lot of time to grow crops, locals in Sweden came up with quite a few ways to preserve foods, there for creating an outstanding cuisine. So during your tour of Sweden, make sure to taste not only traditional meatballs but marinated reindeer (if you‘re up to it) or fish.
