When to go
The best time to visit Sweden would typically be between May and September. As the country experiences summer, the daylight hours become longer, and the weather warms up to its highest temperatures albeit the early 20s. However, as the winter comes, Sweden is used to seeing snowfall and extremely cold temperatures. Sometimes, this snow might even last throughout winter into early and mid-spring. Wintertime in the south of the country is usually milder unlike the north.
