I'm now back safely from my holiday in Bhutan and had a great time. Everything went really well and very smoothly. Our guide was a star, the accommodation and food were above expectation (I loved the national dish of cheese and chillies) and the whole tour was totally fascinating...

Sweden: Archipelago Cycle Adventure

Explore by bike Stockholm's southern archipelago with its more than 24,000 islands stretching 80km east of Stockholm to the Baltic Sea. With their abundant nature reserves, colourful wooden houses and sandy beaches, the islands offer exceptional cycling opportunities particularly in summer when the island life is buzzing. From Tyresta National Park where moose and deer roam freely, travel between the islands to take in the views, visit historic landmarks, swim or kayak and hike forest trails. Returning to Stockholm by boat, watch the transformation from uninhabited islands to the urban clusters of the city. At night stay in atmospheric hotels often with superb views over the islands and housed in historic buildings.

traveller reviews

The Swedish Archipelago tour provides visitors a chance to experience summer like the Swedes do: cycling and hiking through lush forests; picking wild strawberries along the road side; eating fresh caught salmon at a dockside restaurant; watching the sun set late into the evening. The trip provided the perfect combination of physical activity and relaxation.
