Sweden

If you're planning a trip around Northern Europe, Sweden must be on the list. With dog-sledding, scuba-diving and island-hopping, this Scandinavian country has something for everyone. And, of course, with the ABBA Museum in Stockholm, why wouldn't you visit? 

Go dog-sledding

 

Imagine racing along in a sled pulled by Alaskan huskies, with white-tipped mountains across the horizon. Head up north to Sweden's Lapland to try this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
