Beyond the famous IKEA meatballs, pristine natural landscapes and intriguing history of Vikings and monarchies whets your appetite for a luxury holiday to Sweden.
The past and the present converge in the Swedish capital Stockholm, where the royal changing of guard ceremony is still held daily with great fanfare in the historical centre, Gamla Stan. From Stockholm, dubbed the Venice of the North due to its sheer number of islands, set sail for the beautiful Drottningholm Palace, the official residence of the royal family. You might also wind up on the island of Djurgården, where you can visit the world’s oldest open-air museum and sing to your favourite ABBA tunes at a museum dedicated to the legendary pop group.
Venture into nature with an overnight stay in a unique treehouse and try spotting foxes, deer and other wildlife on an evening safari drive in the enchanting woods. Want to witness the king of the Swedish forest in action? Go on an elk safari led by experienced trackers and see the majestic but elusive creature for yourself.
Amp up the fun on your luxury holiday to Sweden with a journey northwards to the wintry Swedish Lapland, where you get to interact with the indigenous Sami people, try your hand at ice sculpting and even build your own igloo.
