In Stockholm, you'll discover a characterful city built across 14 islands and connected by no less than 57 bridges.

Days 1-2

Arrive in Gothenburg on Sweden's west coast where you'll make your way to the city centre and the Clarion Post Hotel, located next to the city's old post office, an impressive and much loved 1920's building, designed in the neo-classical style by Ersnt Torulf.

Spend the next day exploring Gothenburg's many attractions from a 17th century fortresses to hi-tech 21st century exhibits. The shopping boulevard Kungsportsavenyn has been likened to a low-key Champs Élysées and the city also boasts some of Sweden's very best restaurants including no less than four with Michelin Stars. For the your at heart, Gothenburg is also home to Scandinavia's largest theme park, Liseberg, where you'll find an impressive array of roller-coasters, ice creams and glittering lights.

Days 3-4

Leave Gothenburg behind as you travel across Sweden by train to the capital Stockholm. The journey takes around three hours and is a great way of seeing more of the beautiful landscapes of central Sweden as well as being a relaxing way to travel.

Arrive in Stockholm and check into your hotel, the Clarion Sign, located right in the heart of the city and a great base from which to explore. You'll spend the next two days discovering Stockholm at your own pace. Take a stroll through the picturesque streets of Gamla stan, the city's characterful old town, explore the bohemian SoFo area where you'll find a wealth of boutiques and independent cafes and visit the Wasa Museum (entry included), a must in Stockholm where you can see the beautifully preserved 17th century ship that sunk in Stockholm harbour in 1628.

For those with an interest in photography, the Fotografiska Museet features some superb collections and is also a great spot for coffee with panoramic views across the city.
