Top 15 Hotels & Resorts in Sweden

Although some travelers have preconceived notions that Sweden is expensive and cold, it’s actually an affordable destination with lots of warm days and sunshine in the summer months! In Sweden’s top travel destinations, you can find untainted nature, plenty of water sports, rich history and culture, delicious local cuisine, and welcoming hospitality. There are many different landscapes to explore in Sweden, making it an excellent destination for a road trip!

In Sweden, you can enjoy fika (a coffee break-style cultural tradition with pastries in a beautiful garden), learn the fine art of glass blowing, and go island hopping.
