Sweden is located between Norway and Finland on the Scandinavian Peninsula in Northern Europe. With just over nine million inhabitants in an area roughly the size of France or Spain, Sweden has plenty of unspoilt nature. The Swedish countryside is full of forests and lakes, a perfect combination for outdoor activities like fishing, hiking, golfing or swimming in the summer.
In the bigger cities like Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö you can find a rich nightlife bolstered by an abundance of first-class restaurants and plentiful cultural and social happenings.
Sweden attracts visitors all year round, not just for its diverse landscapes, but also for its stark contrasts in seasons. In the wintertime, the far northern region of Lapland is known for its limited daylight which, coupled with it location above the Arctic Circle, makes it one of the best places on earth to see the kaleidoscopic northern lights. Sweden more than makes up for this lack of daylight during the summer time, when the midnight sun creates white nights between May and August.
