Discovering Sweden, you may experience the special sensation of going back to the roots- or essence- of a place. Take for example Fika, the Swedish art of drinking coffee: a social institution that also means the simple joy of taking a break, meeting friends and enjoying a good coffee with a delicious pastry. You will find the same artful simplicity in Stockholm when exploring its creative districts, and interesting design and fashion boutiques. Sail away from this elegant capital to the islands outside the city, and the tranquility continues. In winter, head for Jamtland to practice your skiing skills, and stay in cosy resorts like Are and Riksgransen, just north of the Arctic Circle. Connect with nature at the iconic Tree Hotel, or take a special Aurora Borealis flight above Swedish Lapland. In summer, you can go on a sea safari in the west of Sweden, and relax on tiny, car-free islands where local restaurants serve amazing seafood and freshly caught fish.
