Sherpa Expeditions is now Walkers' BritainDiscover what's new

Sweden is well known for its cutting edge design, stylish locals and gorgeous capital city, but the country’s true wealth is in its remarkable natural beauty. This is a unique and inspiring destination for lovers of unspoiled, uncrowded nature.

Once you’ve savoured the trendy shopping and storybook charm of beautiful downtown Stockholm, you’ll want to get out and start exploring the incredible landscapes Sweden has to offer.

Fortunately, you won’t have to venture far to start, with the Royal National City Park just a stone’s throw away from Stockholm’s city centre. This vast multi-use urban wilderness area—the first of its kind in the world—offers a lush green haven of parks, woods, forests and swimming beaches and is dotted with historic fishing cabins, palatial buildings and some of Sweden’s most important museums and cultural institutions.

With its gentle terrain and idyllic scenery, you’ll want to make the most of your Swedish experience by exploring the country on foot or by bike. Enjoy an unforgettable walking or cycling experience as you hop from island to island in Stockholm's southern archipelago; and experience quintessential Swedish landscapes as you ride through the land of lakes and castles, palaces and pine forests.

Reducing waste

Our Waste Management Policy encourages our travellers to take their own reusable water bottles, coffee cups and reusable stuff sacks to avoid single use plastics. In the mountains of the Pyrenees and Mont Blanc our local partners reduce the amount of packaging taken on tour and ensure all waste is carried out from refuges that do not have road access to help dispose of it properly.

Supporting local

In the regions that we travel tourism is the main source of income for many local people. We support them by only working with local family run hotels and suppliers so your money supports the community that hosts you.

Paddock to Plate

The paddock to plate across Europe is one we encourage by choosing to work with accommodations that source produce from local farms. This provides you with fresher meals and ensures your money directly assists local economies.

Visas

Visas not required for citizens of Australia, Canada, USA and New Zealand for up to 90 days in a period of 180 days for all Schengen countries (see https://tinyurl.com/lkho3qg for countries part of the Schengen). Please ensure your passport is stamped on arrival in the Schengen area. For all other nationalities and for longer stays in countries covered by the Schengen Agreement (Australian New Zealand, Canadian and US passport holders), please contact the relevant embassy. Stays of longer than 90 days in the Schengen area require a long stay visa for the country you are spending most time in. However long stay visas are unlikely to be issued unless there is a valid reason (eg. studying in country). Unfortunately we cannot assist in obtaining visas for long stays due to individual country visa requirements.

Safety

Your safety is our number one concern. Our safety track record is exemplary thanks to careful management and thorough consultation with local partners. Our industry leading risk management procedures have become a skill that we continue to refine. Our leaders in the field are highly trained and have safety as their number one priority. Expert leaders, risk assessments, quality inclusions and your financial security all come standard when you travel with us.

Please refer to our Travel Advisory page for updates on recent events, travel warnings and advice.

We strongly recommend that all clients take out travel insurance at the time of booking to cover against sickness, accident, loss of baggage, unexpected alterations to travel arrangements and travel disruption, emergency evacuation, cancellations, etc. Insurance information is enclosed with your pre-departure information. Please contact us if you would like to obtain a quote for your trip duration.

We suggest that you consult your doctor, local government inoculation centre or a travel medical specialist in order to get the most current advice regarding vaccination requirements.

Money and valuables should always be stored safely when travelling. Keep your passport with you at all times and do not leave it in your main luggage. You will need it to change money and check into hotels. Where safety deposit boxes are available, we recommend that you use them. Keep jewellery and valuables to a minimum.
