The 21 best things to do in Sweden

Mention this long strip of land that's home to ten million people and most people will think of Vikings and the country’s consistently high ranking in happiness surveys, but there are so many things to do in Sweden. From the pristine beauty of the northern wilderness to the lowlands and rolling hills of the south, and from stunning archipelagos to bustling cosmopolitan cities, this country in Europe boasts a variety and richness in food, culture and lifestyle that marks it out as one of the best places to explore no matter what time of year you visit. And, while Stockholm rightly attracts the majority of attention, those willing to seek out more intrepid adventures will not just see the real face of Sweden; they’ll have a truly memorable trip as well.
