Today’s route will lead you through the scenic landscape of Skåne, known as the garden of Sweden. A visit to a local apple farm is included in the program. Learn how they produce the sweetest juice from apples grown in the area.

On the route to Vrigstad, we recommend a stop at one of the moose parks where you can meet the King of the Forest. A visit to one of the glass galleries is also an unforgettable experience.

The tour continues north, alongside the Vättern lake. In the picturesque town of Gränna, known for its candy canes called polkagrise, you will visit a local manufacturer and learn how the red and white striped candy is produced. From Gränna, you can also take a ferry to Visingø. We recommend a walk to the island’s castle ruin before driving to Linköping for the night.

Take the route to Borensberg and Motala today and visit the sluices at the Göta Canal. In Lidköping, at the Vänern lake, visit the castle of Läckö. If you did not get the chance to visit the sluices, there will be enough time to experience the ones at Trollhättan, where you will be staying the night.

Day 6: Region Gothenburg
Today you will visit Sweden’s second largest city, Gothenburg. One of the highlights is the city’s Feskekyrka, a large hall where local fish is auctioned and the best place to taste fresh fish and shellfish. Finish your day with a stroll along the Kungsportavenyen, leading you to Götapladsen where you will find one of the city’s highlights: the Poseidon fountain.

Day 7: Helsingborg
On your way to Helsingborg we recommend a stop at Kullen at the Swedish Riviera. Here you will find a charming little café where you can enjoy a traditional Swedish “Fika”.

Day 8: Departure
After a short trip over the Øresund from Helsingborg to Helsingør in Denmark, the round trip is finished.

Authentic Swedish Fika
Fika is a coffee break, a time for relaxing with a cup of coffee and something sweet. It is more than just a break though, Fika is part of Sweden’s food culture and lifestyle. Contact us for more information on including this experience in your itineraries.
