Cheap Flights to Sweden
Sweden is one of the largest countries in Europe and is a land of extremes, with pleasant beaches in the south and the bitter cold Arctic Circle up in the north. Probably though the country is mostly renowned for its mountains, forests and thousands of lakes with the larger ones located between Gothenburg and the capital city of Stockholm. While you are in the capital, you can explore the well preserved collection of historic buildings that line the cobbled streets in the old town quarter. Also there are dozens of museums that need to be visited, like the Historical and National Museums, as well as the Nordic Museum which is located on Djurgarden Island and is accessible by ferry from the town itself.
On your tour to Sweden don’t miss out on going to Malmo where you can see Malmohus castle, Saint Petri church and other fantastic art museums, as well as the unique incredible Turning Torso skyscraper.
While the lakeside resort of Ostersund is popular amongst the tourists, many visitors opt to go and discover the Baltic Islands first. The largest one is Gotland which has the Lummelunda caves and the other main one is Oland which has an assortment of medieval ruins that you can explore. If you love medieval architecture then head down to Skane, which has the ancient town of Lund with its fourteenth century astronomical clock and twelfth century cathedral.
Naturally Sweden has plenty to offer in the winter and you can experience the amazing ‘ice beds' in the sculpted Ice Hotel in the far-northern village of Jukkasjarvi in Lapland. It is quite amazing how every year after the summer this whole new complex gets rebuilt in time for the winter rush. If you would like to “survive” in these surreal surroundings, why not let Travelspec.com search for all the best and cheapest Sweden flights, just don’t take your hot water bottle to bed with you! In the meantime, during the summer months there are miles and miles of sandy beaches on the west coast where you can top up your tan and there are over ninety thousand lakes where you can practice your water skiing skills.
The country has an outstanding public transportation system, which includes having over thirty five different airports that are dotted around the main areas. Stockholm-Arlanda International Airport is the biggest in Scandinavia, followed by Gothenburg International Airport on the southwest coast. Malmo-Sturup International is roughly the same size but offers cheap flights to Copenhagen.
