Take a holiday with Pippi Longstocking
Close your eyes for a moment and imagine yourself taking a peaceful cycle through lush green meadows, gazing out over a deep blue lake. On its bank sits a lonely bright red, small wooden house, with smoke rising from the chimney and the little girl playing outside with her dolls calls out a friendly “Hej, hej!”. This is not a scene from an Astrid Lindgren story – this is Sweden! On breathtakingly beautiful cycle stages you will get to know the enchanting surroundings around Stockholm. Believe us, Stockholm is really worth visiting!

The land of the midnight sun
The best time to travel to Sweden is summer, without a doubt. Between May and September, Sweden is simply beautiful, the temperatures are pleasant and light conditions are best. Look forward to mild summer days on your bike and cosy nights under the midnight sun. The further north you are in Sweden, the later the sun will go down in the summer. It doesn’t go down in the north. And you should travel to Sweden during the Solstice, you can enjoy magical light displays and a special atmosphere. A spectacle not to miss!
There’s not only crisp bread here
The Swedish kitchen can be described in a few short words – simple but good. Everything that goes in the pot can be found locally – game, fish, herbs, vegetables, potatoes, mushrooms. The Swedish dish everyone that has been to Ikea knows is köttbullar. These are excellently seasoned meatballs in a cream sauce, which are usually served with mashed potatoes, cucumber salad and cranberry sauce. Sill (herring), isterband (a coarse sausage), kroppkakor (potato dumplings filled with meat), gravid lax or simply pannkaka (pancakes) are also enjoyed in Sweden. Have you ever tried moose? In Sweden you have the chance. Smaklig måltid!
