Day 1: Malmö
Individual arrival in Malmö, the 16th century Malmöhus Castle is a particularly popular attraction in Malmö. The architecturally unique “Turning Torso” building which opened in 2005 is now also an iconic landmark of Malmö. Beach lovers should not miss the 2,5-kilometer-long “Ribersborg Beach”.
Day 2: Malmö – Karlskrona
Continue via Kristianstad to Karlskrona a town on the coast of Southern Sweden that is divided into several small islands and has many great beaches. The marine harbor in Karlskrona is part of the UNESCO World Heritage and is worth a visit.
Day 3: Karlskrona – Jönköping
The journey continues through the Swedish Empire via Växjö to Jönköping, a stopover at one of the many glassblowing shops is well worthwhile. Jönköping is located on Lake Vättern, the second largest lake in Sweden. We recommend an evening stroll through the historic city center on the east side of Munksjön.
Day 4: Jönköping – Stockholm
Today the journey continues along Lake Vättern, via Linköping, Norrköping and finally to the Swedish capital, Stockholm. On the way we recommend a stop in the cozy town of Gränna, which is famous for its candy canes. The island of Visingö, easily accessible by ferry from Gränna, is also worth a visit. Additionally, a visit at the Göta Canal at Borgensberg lock is worth a stop.

A visit to the famous Fiskkyrka – Fish Church featuring fantastic fresh seafood daily, is a highlight while in Gothenburg.
