  • Cool Christmas 4 days
Overview
Christmas is certainly a very special time in Sweden. On December 13th, you may see thousands of young Swedish girls dressed in long white gowns. Their hair will be decorated with a wreath of glowing candles, and each will hold a lit candle in their hand. Accompanied by sweet chants from children dressed as gingerbread men, elves, or stjärngossar, the so-called Lucia's wandering from house to house to give out saffron buns. On Christmas Eve, Swedes prepare the Smörgåsbord, a buffet offering all traditional Christmas dishes. These are, for example, Christmas ham, pork sausage, Gubbröra (egg and anchovy mixture),several types of fish, and Vörtbröd (rye bread). God Jul! Your holiday break begins in Sweden’s beautiful capital, Stockholm – the capital of life and movement. Stockholm is built on 14 islands all part of an archipelago. Sweden’s Capital is charming, vibrant and surrounded by beauty and water – hence it’s nickname, Venice of the North. After enjoying an urban lifestyle in Stockholm you will continue north – 200km inside the Arctic Circle to the world famous Ice hotel. Ten thousand years ago, glaciers carved a riverbed and the Torne River was born. Since then, the crystal-clear, pure water of the Torne River has flowed freely along its 600-kilometer path through Lapland out to the sea in the southeast. The entire ICEHOTEL is on loan from the mighty Torne River and is a place where time stands still.
