Scandinavia - Sweden (Chapter)
This is the Sweden chapter from Lonely Planet's Scandinavia guidebook.
Progressive and civilised Sweden is also a wild place: from barren moonscapes and impenetrable forests to sunny beaches and lush farmland. For less rugged types, there's restaurant and nightclub hopping and museum perusing in cosmopolitan Stockholm and lively Göteborg.
- hike through wild landscapes, seeing herds of reindeer, absorbing Sámi culture and sleeping in the world-famous Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi
- celebrate Midsummer in the heartland villages surrounding lovely Lake Siljan
- race a dog sled under the northern lights near Kiruna
- restaurants & accommodation
