Summer in Sweden

You'll want to spend a lot of time outdoors when visiting Sweden in the summer. The weather is quite comfortable in many cities in the summer, so you can do lots of fun activities like watersports in Karlstad on Lake Vanern or make a visit to the Baltic Island where you can stroll on its sandy beaches. Summer is also a great time for camping in the country’s forests!
