We are offering tours of sweden, sweden trip. The midnight sun, the
snowbound winters, meatballs, herring, Vikings and Volvos, ABBA and the
Hives - whatever your pre-existing notions about Sweden may be, a visit to
this multifaceted country is bound to both confirm and confound them.
Tourist attractions in Sweden are numerous. A stroll through the Swedish
countryside will often lead to a picnic on some ancient kings burial
mound. Cycling routes frequently pass through fields crowned with
ship-shaped stone graves. In cities and alongside roadways, rune stones
staunchly declare the historical equivalent of Ingmar was here.
But Swedens days as a warlike nation are long gone.
When you think of Sweden, beaches really doesn't come to your mind, but
this country has some of the most beautiful beaches of the world. Some of
the best beaches are found on the Baltic island of Gotland, which is not
only popular among Swedes, but also attracts thousands of visitors every
summer. The pleasant and surprisingly flat landscape of Gotland is excellent
for cycling. The walled medieval Hanseatic town Visby is on the World
Heritage list of the Unesco and an attraction on its own.
Lake Siljan is in the heart of Dalarna, central Sweden and is the center of
folklore and tradition. Dalarna, a popular holiday destination in summer is
visited every year by thousands of Swedes to see the midsummer pole set up.
The nearby town of Rättvik is known for its folk dancing and also the
bear park in Orsa.
Mining is a special attraction in Sweden and is visited by many tourists.
These are many mines in this country but the copper mine of Falun, Dalarna
(now on the World Heritage List) and the iron-ore mines of Kiruna and Gällivare
in Lapland are are a must visit.
Sweden has many national parks and nature reserves that are absolutely
ideal for long hiking tours. Most impressive landscapes can be found in
Lapland in the North and Abisko is a great spot with the famous Lapporten
landmark. To the south of this park is the spectacular Sarek national park,
which has Europe's most dangerous rivers, deep valleys and high mountains.
