Is a winter holiday in Sweden possible in 2020/21?

Naturally, traveling during this time brings some uncertainties. We're here to help you have an amazing time and will do everything we can to assist you throughout your journey. 

As of now, travel to Sweden from the UK is possible. Quarantine is not required on arrival to Sweden, nor on return to the UK. The FCO has placed Sweden on the list of exemption countries which means that you will be able to source travel insurance to support your trip.

Our partners in Sweden are following government guidelines on providing a safe environment for their guests and staff. The abundance of space and low population densities also helps to keep infection rate down. 

There may also be unexpected changes which affect your trip. If this is the case, we will communicate with you quickly and clearly and do everything we can to make your trip happen to the standard you would expect. 

There may also be changes beyond our control that mean travel isn't possible. For example, if flights are cancelled, the FCO advises against non-essential travel to Sweden in the 30 days ahead of your trip or Sweden closes its borders during this time. If this is the case, as per current travel package regulations, we are obliged to refund you in full or offer you the opportunity to postpone your trip to a future date. This is something we have practised throughout the pandemic and we have consequently built incredible trust with our clients.  

Here are our top 5 Covid-friendly trips to Sweden this winter

1) Take your bubble to the forest - Treehotel

Stay at the amazing and upscale Treehotel in Swedish Lapland. In perfect isolation, you’ll have the chance to join winter adventures, search the magical Northern Lights and enjoy nights high up in the trees.

2) Cabin cosy at Brandon Lodge

The detached timber cabins at Brandon Lodge offer the perfect socially distanced holiday in Swedish Lapland. Enjoy endless views of the frozen sea by day and the chance to witness the Aurora by night. And for those who wish to visit Rovaniemi (Finland), currently it’s possible to cross over the border and visit Santa as long as your trip is less than 72 hours in duration.

3) Safe spa rituals and private excursions at Camp Ripan

The Aurora Spa at Camp Ripan welcomes fewer guests meaning more space to relax and enjoy the spa rituals and treatments on offer. Stay nearby in one of the Nordic chalets and join some fun winter adventures which can be modified as a private experience for your group. 

4) More safe spa rituals and designer lodging

Be among the first guests to stay at the recently opened Arctic Spa Bath and allow the healing power of the Arctic nature to empower you through the winter months. This floating spa hotel is a one-of-a-kind experience and will let you forget your worries in an instant.

5) Outdoor adventures at Sorbyn Lodge

If you’d like a jam-packed itinerary of winter adventures, Sorbyn Lodge offers this and more. A unique restaurant, cosy accommodation and top quality guides will help bring you up-close to Sweden’s untouched wilderness.
