Sweden is the third largest country in Europe and offers a goldmine of year-round possibilities to visitors. Filled with historic culture and diverse landscapes, from the cosmopolitan centre of Stockholm and the gentle beauty of Skane, to the rugged wilderness of Lapland, Sweden can be enjoyed from a variety of perspectives, and none better than with the freedom of a car. Boasting over 100,000 deserted lakes but for a few log cabins for accommodation, and that the summer sun seldom ever sets, make Sweden's alpine and forest regions a popular destination for boaters, hikers and walkers, and the more northern parts famous among winter sports enthusiasts. Away from the wilderness, the nation's towns and cities like Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö, which is connected by the Oresund Bridge to Coppenhagen and thus Denmark, are abundant in all the facilities and amenities expected in a major European destination.
The City of Stockholm – Stockholm boasts a vibrant nightclub scene on a stunning archipelago, yet also home to classic architecture like the 18th century Royal Palace, where the Italian baroque styling hides over 600 rooms, and Drottningholm Palace, with its imposing gardens, unique palace theatre and salons from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Also in town are: The Vasa Museum, the most visited museum in Scandinavia, that exhibits the most complete and best preserved 17th century ship in the world; the Fotografiska, one of the world's largest collections of contemporary photography; and Moderna Museet, possibly Europe's foremost collection of art form the 20th century that includes works by Picasso, Dali and Matisse. And don't forget ABBA The Museum, where die-hard fans can honour the Swedish pop group with films, the clothes, lyrics and interactive musical attractions.
The Icehotel and the aurora borealis – Roughly 10 miles outside Kiruna, in the very northern most part of Sweden, is the village of Jukkasjävi. Here every year a hotel is built from snow and ice. Using ice blocks from the nearby Torne River, everything from the chairs, the beds and even the glasses in the bar are made from ice, creating a magical place to stay from December to April. It's a fantastic and popular location from where to watch the aurora borealis, or northern lights, where charged particles enter Earth's atmosphere from above to create a most dramatic light show that, once seen, is never forgotten.
