I have wanted to travel to Sweden for a long time. Unfortunately, it always seemed just that bit out of the way and I was scared that it would be too expensive from the rumors I heard. Thankfully, I recently had the opportunity to take a trip to Sweden and it not only surpassed any expectation I had, but was also not as expensive as I had feared. Below you will find my Sweden travel guide as well as my Stockholm guide.
Traveling to Sweden became a reality when I discovered Norwegian Air. This fantastic budget carrier makes it easy and cheap to have a Sweden trip – we paid just US$200 per person for the 12 hour flight to Stockholm from Bangkok and that was not a sale price!
We spent our time in Stockholm. This city completely surpassed any expectations we had. It is beautiful with a crazy amount of things to do. There are so many beautiful pockets, the city is easy to get around and there are more attractions than we could possibly have time to do. Our only regret is that we did not have time to do more travel in Sweden. I am sure it will not be long until we go back and remedy that!
I do not think that we have been to a more family friendly destination than Sweden. There are so many attractions in Sweden for kids. It’s very pram friendly and our kids were welcomed everywhere.
The best part, however, was that even the more adult focused attractions we visited, like the Nobel Museum, had kids’ areas and activities. This meant that the kids not only learned more and were more engaged, but it gave us the chance to learn more and enjoy the museums more ourselves. If only everywhere in the world was more like this!
We did not get the opportunity to visit many hotels in Sweden. However, we loved staying at the Scandic Sergel Plaza in Stockholm. This hotel was very kid friendly with gifts on arrival, family rooms, a playroom and free stroller hire. It is also in an unbeatable location.
