Next time I go to Scandinavia, I'll definitely keep Nordic Visitor in mind. They booked us great hotels that were centrally located and made it easy for us to tour every location at our own pace. The timing of travel was well considered so we could grab breakfast before our train to the next location, our accommodation were lovely, and communication leading up to our trip was smooth, even given the time difference. Highly recommend.

We recently undertook a self-drive tour in Sweden and were thoroughly impressed. The itinerary was thoughtfully crafted, providing interesting stops and sights each day just when we were ready for a break. I'd like to especially commend Juliana for her exceptional coordination and communication throughout the planning process. She consistently demonstrated professionalism and responsiveness, greatly reducing any potential stress associated with trip planning.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Sweden Tours

If you're thinking of visiting Sweden, you might have a few questions. For your convenience we’ve collected the most asked ones, so check our FAQs below. You can also find more detailed information on booking and payments on our general FAQ page.

Sweden is a safe country for both visitors and locals. In fact, the Global Peace Index rates Sweden as one of the safest countries in the world. Sweden is also one of the safest driving countries in the world according to the World Health Organisation.

Sweden is part of Scandinavia, along with the neighbouring countries of Denmark and Norway.

Yes – Sweden is part of Europe and is located in the north of the continent.

The Swedish krona (SEK) is the official currency of Sweden – keep this in mind if you plan on exchanging money as Sweden does not use the Euro.

The official language of Sweden is Swedish, with English widely spoken. However in Swedish Lapland and the northerly regions, the locals may also converse in Finnish or Sami.

The warmest month on average is July. Swedish summers are typically pleasant, and temperatures can get as high as 30°C (86°F) between June and August.

For mild weather and sunshine, we recommend visiting Sweden from May to September. Not only will you experience Sweden’s charming towns and natural attractions in pleasant conditions, but you’ll also have longer summer days to enjoy them. Regions close to the Arctic Circle experience the ‘midnight sun’ during the summer months – a phenomenon where daylight lasts well into the evening.

If you enjoy wintry activities, a cooler climate and landscapes blanketed in snow, then a visit between October and January is perfect for you. The winter is prime northern lights viewing season and Swedish Lapland is the ideal region to chase them down.

The further north you are of the Arctic Circle, the better your chances of seeing the northern lights, so we suggest visiting the province of Lapland. Here’s our list of aurora viewing areas:

  • Kiruna, Sweden’s most northerly town
  • Abisko, a charming mountain resort village in an “aurora zone”
  • The Aurora Sky Station, a northern lights observatory based outside of Abisko

Swedish Lapland is a beautiful place to go on a ‘northern lights safari’, so why not learn more about the area, and what to expect there, in our northern lights Lapland guide.

The best time to see the northern lights in Sweden is during winter, specifically from October to March, with peak visibility between December and February. Evenings are the best time to go searching for the lights and ideal viewing conditions are remote areas away from light pollution, with clear skies.

A self-guided tour is a package where all of the bookings and activities are organised for you by your dedicated travel consultant. On these tours, you travel without a guide and navigate the journey yourself.

The best way to tour Sweden depends on the form of transport you most enjoy and how you prefer to experience attractions.

Sweden’s train system is prompt and comfortable, and when travelling through the countryside, the views from either side of the carriage are exceptional. Rail travel is popular among locals and for good reason – you get to enjoy a traffic-free journey with good amenities and opportunities to stretch your legs.

If you’re the seafaring type, then try a Scandinavian cruise that starts or ends in Sweden. You get to enjoy sweeping views of the coast and experience overnight stays in cosy cabins. By choosing to cruise, you’ll get to visit other famous Nordic cities like Copenhagen and Oslo. You’re also in visiting distance of cities like Tallinn and Helsinki. Find more cruises on our Scandinavian packages.

Self-drive tours are another appealing option as you get to set the pace of your journey and enjoy the flexibility of driving to each attraction. Sweden has some of the safest and most well-maintained roads in the world. A smooth and picturesque drive, another benefit of taking the wheel is that you receive a hand-drawn map of your route and a detailed reference guide with area information and nearby sight-seeing.

Yes, you can choose the best arrival date to suit you depending on package and season. All our vacation packages can be purchased online, and once you’ve decided on the best journey for you, you can choose your ideal dates. If you’ve already booked, but your travel plans have changed, then get in touch with your travel consultant as soon as possible so they can rearrange your trip.

We advise that you book your package first to secure your tour. It may be worth checking potential flight times and prices first, but be aware some airlines and flight booking websites raise their prices between visits, so remember to do research using “Private” or “Incognito” mode. Once your tour is confirmed by email, go ahead and purchase your flights. If you have missed out on flights, please get in touch with us to change the dates of your tour.

We advise all our guests to dress sensibly and pack warm layers, as well as wear comfortable shoes when visiting Sweden. Northerly regions like Lapland can reach temperatures as low as -50°C (-58°F), so it’s best to wrap up! Scandinavian weather can change quickly and it’s better to plan for the unexpected than to be underprepared. We recommend that you bring:

  • Rucksack
  • Jumper or fleece
  • Waterproof jacket
  • Comfortable walking shoes
  • Umbrella or poncho
  • Scarf
  • Gloves
  • Hat
  • Sleep mask (summer)
  • Foot warmers (winter)
  • Thermos (winter)
  • Binoculars (for cruise-goers)
  • Sunscreen and sunglasses (summer)
