Early summer is the perfect time to experience the pastels of Swedish fishing harbours, the cobbled streets of old towns and cruise into the capital through the thousand islands of the Stockholm Archipelago.
Our unique shore walks and excursions include:
Lysekil: On the west coast of Sweden. The picturesque Norra harbour looks out to sea, and is a stone’s throw from the Stångehuvuds nature reserve.
Helsingborg: Spend time strolling the city’s fine streets and quays, maybe swim from one of the beaches. We also visit the former royal summer Sofiero Palace, north of the city, now housing one of Sweden’s most famous gardens.
Karlskrona: On a peninsula, on the southeast coast of Sweden. A local guide takes us through the Ådalen nature reserve in Jämjö. In the afternoon we walk amongst the pretty painted cottages and seaside villas back in the town.
Stockholm: Built across 14 islands, you are never far from the water, whether you are in the cobbled streets of Gamla Stan, or walking through parkland or open air museums.
Arendal: Just to the north of Gothenburg. We spend the afternoon with a local guide in this bright and airy city of water, parks and gardens.
