Central Sweden

Visit Central Sweden

Introduction

The most popular destination in central Sweden is the capital Stockholm. Often called the 'Venice of the North', Stockholm is a city of islands, where you'll discover an interior brimming with museums, parkland and captivating architecture.

Within a short boat ride of central Stockholm lies the Stockholm Archipelago. With thousands of islands and islets offering tranquillity, beaches and scenic walks there are plenty of destinations to choose from, including local favourite Vaxholm.

The province of Dalarna is a great place to discover everything that is typically Swedish. Visit Leksand to join in the midsummer festival celebrations with the lakeside community or head to mountainous Orsa, where you'll find yourself in Swedish bear country.

Further north discover the tranquil beauty of Lake Storsj”ßn before continuing on to nearby ski resort Åre, renowned for its warm, friendly atmosphere and excellent ski slopes.
