What is the Weather in Sweden?
Sweden sits above the Arctic circle which means winter can have severe temperatures while summer temperatures are fairly mild. Southern areas of the country have milder weather than northern areas. Central and south Sweden have winters that are short but very cold while the northeast has winters that are very severe, yet summers can be warm. In the far northern areas of the country, snow is on the ground year round in elevated areas and summers are very short. Summer days have very long hours while winter nights are very long.
How do I get Around Sweden?
Train travel is the easiest way to get around Sweden and prices are not very high. Most railway stations have a letter C after the name, such as Stockholm C which is actually Stockholm Central. You can also travel on the Inlandsbanan, an inland railway that travels to some of Sweden’s off-the-beaten track locations. Bus travel is slightly more expensive, but it is an option. Regional buses are a great way to see local sights while in Sweden. Because Sweden has many lakes and a lengthy coastline, ferries are also popular. You can take a ferry to Visby on the island of Gotland or to Nynashamn near Stockholm. The Stockholm archipelago with 24,000 islands to explore also offers ferry services from the mainland as do other archipelagos around Sweden.
