Sweden Independent Holidays

Aimed at the independent traveller, this collection of holidays makes use of a range of transport options from rail travel to ferry crossings letting you explore Sweden’s varied landscapes without the need of a hire car.

Sit back and enjoy the scenery on a train journey up the stunning West Coast or across the scenic beauty of Lapland from the pristine wilderness of Abisko in Sweden to the coastal town of Narvik in Norway – look out for moose and reindeer on the way. Soak up delightful island views as the ferry crosses to the Koster Islands in the beautiful west coast archipelago or watch a magical sunset as you cruise from Helsinki to Stockholm across the Baltic Sea.

Our collection of independent holidays seeks out some of Sweden’s beautiful hidden gems. Explore the coastline of West Sweden with its myriad of islands, picturesque fishing villages and gastronomic delights or head inland to Varmland’s wilderness with its dense forests, lazy rivers and numerous lakes.

We also offer touring combinations across Scandinavia giving you the best experience of this region and its highlights, including the capital cities of Oslo and Stockholm, Norway’s Arctic town of Tromso and its magnificent Lofoten islands.

Aimed at the independent-minded traveller our itineraries are ideal for exploring Sweden’s beautiful countryside and coastline, safe in the knowledge that your accommodation and transport have been pre-arranged, so you can spend quality time enjoying your holiday.
