Climate in Sweden

The very best time to travel to Sweden is definitely summer. Between May and September there are pleasantly mild temperatures and the sun almost never sets, creating magical light conditions. So you can enjoy warm summer days during the day and cozy nights under the midnight sun. The further north you are, the more hours of sunshine you get per day. In the northernmost part, the sun never sets in summer. In the winter it doesn't show up very long. Therefore, you should definitely book your next active trip to Sweden in summer.

The Swedish Cuisine

Anyone who thinks we only have crispbread and fish in Sweden is definitely wrong. Even if Swedish cuisine is often described as simple and good, it has a lot to offer. Fresh and regional products such as game, vegetables, fish and herbs play a major role. The most famous Swedish dish, which is known from the Swedish furniture store IKEA, is called Köttbullar. Meatballs in a creamy sauce with mashed potatoes, cucumber salad and lingonberry jam are not only enjoyed by the Swedes. But other dishes such as sill (herring), isterband (a coarse fried sausage), kroppkakor (potato dumplings with meat filling), smoked salmon or simply pannkaka (pancakes) are also popular for lunch. What else should not be missed is the typical Swedish fika. This term describes the tea or coffee break in the morning and afternoon, it is an integral part of Swedes' cuisine.
