Sweden is not typically one of the top destinations when people are surveyed over countries they would like to visit in Europe. However, if Sweden advertised its attractions as much as countries like France or Spain, then people would be rushing to visit Sweden just as much. There are plenty of exciting and engaging opportunities to take part in on activity holidays to this beautiful, Arctic country.
Sweden could really be considered one of the last frontiers of adventure in Europe. With icy tundra landscapes, majestic oceanic fjords and sheer rock cliffs, there are plenty of ways to engage in all that Sweden has to offer. One of the more popular activities to do while visiting Sweden is to go on a sea kayak tour. There are a few ways to approach this. The easiest and most convenient for tourists would be to find an adventure tour company that organizes these trips on a regular basis. Going with a company, you can be sure that they know the best and most beautiful spots to appreciate Sweden from the sea. If you know a local, you can rent your own kayaks and go out on your own adventure, possibly finding your own path over the water. From sea kayaks, visitors can see sea bird colonies out on rookery rocks, as well as possibly get a glimpse of some whales.
Another popular activity in Sweden is camping – there are many different habitats in which one can go camping. Coastal camping in Sweden involves some steep cliffs, so these may be for the more experienced hikers and campers.
Camping inland can involve some beautiful alpine and tundra forests, filled with birds and reindeer. If camping is not your cup of tea, you can still get out into the wilderness, with all the comforts of home, when you rent a cabin. There are many people that rent cabins in Sweden, so it is a relatively easy process to find the perfect one for you (and your family). Once set up in a cabin, there are lots of other activities to do.
