Guide to Luxury Holidays in Stockholm

Sweden’s capital city Stockholm is lovingly known as 'beauty on water', a nickname the city certainly deserves. Cheerful houses and lavish palaces sit along the water’s edge on the city’s many islands and ornate cathedral spires pierce the skyline. A leisurely stroll around the city is one of the most pleasant ways to spend your days and the many bridges and ferry rides provide picture-perfect views. One of the most exclusive parts of the city is the neighbourhood of Ostermalm. It's an elegant area, where broad streets play host to Stockholm's affluent shopping district the Bibliotekstan. Visit designer stores, selling renowned international brands, and high-end Scandinavian boutiques. This neighbourhood is also home to the fantastic Swedish History Museum, which contains relics from the Stone Age, Viking Era, and contemporary Sweden. Southeast of Ostermalm is the tranquil island of Djurgarden. Located in central Stockholm, Djurgarden is an emerald oasis with tree-lined parks and rolling lawns that reach the water’s edge. It's an excellent place for long walks, relaxation and offers spectacular views of the sunset. Popular with families, it's also convenient for several main attractions like ABBA: The Museum, Vasa Museum and Skansen Open-Air Museum.

Stockholm is a year-round destination with four distinct seasons. In summer, there's little rainfall, long daylight hours and warm weather with temperatures reaching above 20 degrees Celsius. In winter, you’ll find colder weather and snow can fall as early as October. By November, the land is usually transformed into a snowy paradise, making for a classic Scandinavian experience. In spring, cherry trees blossom and Stockholm’s many parks come alive. Autumn is a cosy time of year with colourful leaves creating romantic walks.
As with any holiday, it's a good idea to carry some identification with you. British passport holders can stay in Sweden for up to three months without a visa. Visit GOV.UK for more advice on passports, visas and travel.
On a luxury holiday to Stockholm, you can sample Swedish dishes prepared by expert chefs. Chefs often use a creative fusion of international flavours and cooking styles to showcase their skill and flair. Menus often feature international favourites with a Scandinavian twist and local delicacies infused with Mediterranean influences. You'll also get to sample Sweden's famous smorgasbord, a mouthwatering buffet of fish, meatballs, bread, mustard and dill-scented sauces. In Stockholm, exquisite meals are served with beautiful views, whether that be a 360-degree view of Lake Malaren or Stockholm's boat-lined waterfront.
