Traveling to Sweden will surprise even the most experienced travellers! Thousands of lakes, kilometres of forests, rocky islands, masterpieces of Scandinavian architecture and authentic villages that have been unchanged for hundreds of years are just a small part of what this country has to offer. If you want to know more about the Swedish history and culture, visit the majestic castles or trek around the northern cities. The Swedish believe that the real charm of this country lies in the spectacular corners of nature, so take advantage of the ‘Allemansrätten’ meaning man's right to roam, relax, and camp. You’ll be surprised by what the Swedish countryside offers: fishing, Swedish saunas, and the archipelago.
Sweden is a very welcoming country for motorcyclists. Well-developed roads offer easy access to major cities such as Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö. Motorcyclists who love high adrenaline trips can try the forest tracks and the sandy lakes while admiring the scenic Swedish landscapes and cosy Scandinavian villages. Every motorcycle rider knows that staying overnight surrounded by nature is much nicer than a hotel, so don't forget to bring a tent when you travel.
Want to see more of the world? Why not visit a few countries in one trip? Take a DFDS ferry to Karlshamn and head towards Norway on the southern coast of Sweden. Visit the breath-taking Norwegian fjord dunes and then travel across the mountain roads towards central Sweden, where hundreds of lakes and forests await you. Alternatively, travel to southern Sweden from Karlshamn, then cross the impressive Oresund Bridge to reach Denmark (DFDS offers you a 50% discount on the ticket). From here you will easily reach Germany, travelling around before you head back home from the DFDS port in Kiel.
When travelling with DFDS you will depart from Klaipeda to Karlshamn, located in the Blekinge province of Southern Sweden. Once in Blekinge, take the opportunity to see Karlskrona, a fascinating city from the 17th century, nominated by the UNESCO for its uniqueness consisting of 33 islands. Another popular province, Skane, offers rocky shores, sandy beaches, dense forests and well-groomed Swedish countryside landscapes. Lastly Malmö, the most important city in the region will surprise you with its modern architecture and cosmopolitan lifestyle.
Visiting western Sweden will undoubtedly make your holiday a memorable one. Admire the stunning nature on thousands of islands and visit Gothenburg, renowned as being the largest Scandinavian port with fascinating canals.
