What to pack for Sweden

Experience Tick Thin Icon

An All-Weather Jacket

No matter the time of year, a jacket is a must in your Sweden travel bag. Go for something lightweight yet warm, waterproof and windproof, and you will be ready for all Swedish weather conditions.

A legitimate camera

While most people are content with using their phone for holiday snaps, if you truly want to capture the beauty of this city you should bring a specialist camera.

Experience Tick Thin Icon

Comfortable shoes

One minute you’re walking through Stockholm’s old town, the next your hiking through alpine landscapes in the far north. A comfortable pair of walking shoes will get you through all environments on your trip to Sweden.

Experience Tick Thin Icon

A refillable water bottle

You’ll spend most of your time on the move in Sweden. Bring a reusable, lightweight and durable water bottle to keep rehydrated while doing your bit for the environment.

Sunglasses

Even in winter, the sun’s glare can be your enemy. A slick pair of sunglasses will not only protect your eyes but will also help you fit in with the fashionable Swedish locals.
