Wild, sparsely populated and absolutely massive, Sweden is one of Europe's most fascinating and versatile destinations. The cities of Gothenburg and Stockholm are the staging post for many Sweden holidays and come alive once night falls, but leave the towns behind and you'll find a vast unspoiled wilderness of pristine lakes, forests and mountains.

What To Pack?

Medicine - Cold medicines and decongestants aren't sold over the counter here, so you'd be wise to bring your own supply.

Booze - Alcohol is very expensive in Sweden, so stock up at the duty-free!

A waterproof jacket - There's no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes, or so say the Swedes.

An adapter plug - Sweden uses the European standard 2-pin plug. You'll need a step-down transformer for appliances that run on USA voltage

Sunglasses - The summer sun never sets on northern Sweden. So don’t forget to protect those peepers.
