You have decided to visit Sweden for your next holiday adventure and you really want to get to know the country. You are okay with the idea of day tours, but being part of a herd following a woman with an upraised pink umbrella while trying to take in the pertinent information (which means straining your neck and ears) just doesn’t sound like the way to go. Typically, such tours are restricted to main tourist hubs such as Stockholm. As you should know by now, there is much more to Sweden than its capital city.
Instead of being in a herd of people, how about joining a small group of like-minded individuals who prefer to watch a natural herd of moose or reindeer out in the wild? If this concept is more appealing to you, then you should consider some day trips that will take you out of bustling civilization and into the peaceful and unending forests, mountains, and lakes that comprise a major portion of Sweden.
This is not just a pipedream; you can visit Stockholm and take in some Sweden day tours that will reveal the natural beauty of Sweden and provide you with a fuller and more complete picture of what Sweden is all about. If this concept has caught your attention, then read on…
