Often thought of as a rather unknown land, those who visit Scandinavia are taken in by its stunning natural beauty, vibrant cities, outstanding modern architecture, excellent museums, and friendly and open-minded people.
Stockholm certainly lives up to these expectations, and there are plenty of interesting cultural visits that will open the minds of your students. A visit to the open-air museum, Skansen, will teach you all there is to know about Swedish history to the present day, and Stockholm's top visit, Vasamuseet, lets your students discover the only preserved seventeenth-century ship in the world. Take a stroll through the old town, "Gamla Stan", or a boat trip to one of the archipelago islands, and maybe even visit the ABBA Museum!
There is also the option of designing the trip around a specific Swedish celebration, such as Midsummer or Christmas, so get in touch with us today to arrange a unique and exciting trip for your students.
