Family Holidays in Sweden

Sweden is synonymous with healthy living and the outdoors so it should come as no surprise that it is also a paradise for families. The easy pace of life in its bustling, friendly cities makes for a more relaxed kind of city break - and there are a wealth of museums, galleries and attractions for all ages and tastes in destinations such as Stockholm and Gothenburg.

Out in the vast open spaces of Sweden's beautiful countryside, crystal clear lakes, thick forests, and beautiful Arctic mountains (in Lapland, the land of Father Christmas), all provide a playground for children (and the child inside) with the chance to enjoy a huge range of sports and activities on offer all year round.

For a great family holiday not found everywhere, why not combine a memorable stay in a lakeside tipi with few days of various fun filled activities such as hiking, high wire, rappelling and wildlife watching in West Sweden. A week stay in a quaint log cabin while spending your days kayaking and canoeing is sure to delight all the children – Sweden really is a fantastic destination for a memorable family holiday.
