It’s not too early to book a holiday and be in a completely different country to bring in the new year. In fact, booking a holiday this late is often a smart move. While what’s left might be scarce you’ll often find fantastic getaways at bargain prices. Whether or not you’re thinking about a wonderful vacation this season or next summer, I think Sweden is a brilliant choice. The country is filled with natural beauty and ancient wonder that you certainly don’t want to miss. Here are just some of the activities that you can enjoy if you take my advice and book your journey now.
Skiing And Snowboarding

If you’ve never been on a skiing holiday, you’re in for a real treat. If you don’t know how to ski, you’ll first have to learn your way around the slopes. You might want to take a few days off and get some practice on a dry slope before heading out in the snow. Once you do, you’ll find skiing is a piece of cake and great fun. Sweden is a beautiful location for a skiing holiday due to the gorgeous landscape. As you swerve gracefully down the slope, you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled for winter foxes, wolves and moose. As well as this, you are sure to find yourself captivated by the gorgeous views of snowy mountains.
If you want an extra challenge, you could try your luck at snowboarding. But you will have to get used to falling off quite a few times before you get the hang of it.
Fun And Games
If skiing and snowboarding aren’t your cup of tea, you could instead take a sleigh out with a team of huskies. There is nothing quite like being pulled through a winter wonderland by a team of dogs. It’s not recommended that you try this activity by yourself. But in Sweden you’ll find a lot of guides willing to take the reigns while you sit back and enjoy the ride.
Or, if you want a little more power and a lot more fun you and your whole family could rent snowmobiles and tear across the landscape. This type of adventure is often included in any number of Swedish winter holidays you might be keen to book. It’s just one of the fun-filled rides you can indulge in on activity breaks to Sweden.

When you’re in Sweden you’ll have the chance to stay in an ice hotel. This incredible piece of architecture started in 1989 as an ice igloo to display art. Now it has grown into a popular tourist destination that has people flocking to stay there every year. Located in a small remote swedish village, the hotel offers a holiday like nothing you’ve experienced before.
Lastly, if you have children, you should certainly take a trip to Swedish Lapland. There you will have the chance to visit a place filled with activities for the whole family. But for adults, the animal filled national parks are not to be missed. You should certainly look into the unique midnight safaris where you can tour the wilderness at night.
Book your holiday to Sweden now and you will discover a place you will want to visit again and again.
