Sweden

Sweden is a Scandinavian nation with thousands of coastal islands and inland lakes, along with vast boreal forests and glaciated mountains. Sweden is a land of incredible contrasts, from the dense pine forests and craggy mountains of the north, to the rolling hills and glossy golden beaches of the south.  With lovely outdoors, clean air, crystal clear water, majestic lakes, thousands of acres of unspoiled forests, and invariably friendly Swedish people, Sweden is certainly a traveler’s paradise. 

Fairytale Drottningholm Palace, Nobel Museum , Malmö Castle and Vasa Museum cater tourists with a mind-boggling history from notorious Viking invaders to Royal dynasties and imperial intrigue. Stromma Boat Tours and Djurgården park with many wonderful amenities is a guaranteed draw for visitors particularly during the glorious Scandinavian summer months. Steeped in medieval history and brimming with ruined churches, the rose-entwined, walled town of Visby, on the island of Gotland, is a huge draw for visitors from around the world.
