From floating greenhouses to spectacular spa hotels, here's where to head to on the idyllic Swedish islands this season

It's been a long Scandinavian winter to test the hardiest of endurance levels, and while it's not quite over yet, it's never too early to plan for summer. And the Stockholm archipelago, where the birds are singing, there’s a gentle ocean breeze and there are water views for days, makes for the perfect, long-awaited getaway.


Our picks for the summer include an updated island classic, architectural gems on the water and glamping experiences, all within easy reach of Sweden's capital for a summer weekend or a week-long retreat to remember.
