The further north you travel in Sweden, around Lulea, then the colder it’s going to get with snow falling and freezing temperatures expected throughout January and February and into March.
The winter can be the best time to go to Sweden if you’re hoping to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights over Abisko National Park or follow wolf prints across snow covered tracks.
It’s still relatively cold in April, even down south, but clear blue sky days and warm togs more than make up for the odd flurry of snow or chilly evening temperatures.
May signals the start of the summer both for the north and south of the country and is the best time to go to Sweden for outdoor lovers looking for peaceful lakesides and uncrowded forest trails.
June, July and August are also ideal times to visit in terms of temperature but you will find more crowds as well as a fair few mozzies around the lakes and birch forests, particularly in the lowlands of the north.
Temperatures are starting to dip in September and October especially at night and on higher ground; and as Sweden enters November and December it’s time to wrap up warm as the first snow showers start to return in earnest.
