Holiday Types And Experiences
It can be said that Sweden’s greatest appeal, certainly for our clients, is as a winter break destination, particularly in the snow-covered wilderness of Lapland. This frozen landscape is perfect for activities such as snowmobiling and husky sledding. The icon of Swedish Lapland is without a doubt the world famous Icehotel, a stunning creation of ice and snow offering the unique chance to ‘sleep on ice’.
A stay at the Icehotel can also be teamed with a night at the Aurora Sky Station in Abisko National Park. With virtually cloud-free skies due to the obliging prevailing winds, this lofty observatory is one of the best places in the world for northern lights viewing.
If you’re after a summer holiday in Sweden, the stunning countryside and sparkling coastline of the west and south is best visited between June and September. The southern province of Skane enjoys a mild climate and an ambience reminiscent of the South of France. Slightly further north, West Sweden has a character all of its own. The coastline stretches from Gothenburg to the Norwegian border, with a spectacular archipelago of around 8,000 islands and inlets, picture postcard hamlets and harbours and golden dunes. Alternatively the Icehotel is now open 365 days a year and offers a range of summer activities as well as the opportunity to sleep in an Ice room, no matter how warm it is outside!

Its an outstanding company and the service provided by the staff was second to none. A lesson to be learned by other travel companies/airlines.

All round excellent and I look forward to my next opportunity to use Discov
I only used Discover the World for flights to and from Kiruna and one night in the Ice Hotel, because you couldn’t manage the dates I needed for the Husky Running. However the little that DoW was involved with was perfect from the conversations on the telephone before booking ,…
