Truly, gay Sweden offers so much to LGBTI travellers. Being gay, lesbian or anything in between in this Scandinavian nation has been legal since 1944. And next May, they’ll also be celebrating eight years of equal marriage – so it has long been an open-minded place to visit.

We like to say that it’s a place where narrow streets and expansive landscapes meet open minds. It really is an exciting place to visit for gay people, whether for a city break or longer stay – it has a vibrant and integrated gay scene, with over 30 LGBTI Pride festivals celebrated each year.

Whether you’re an adventure travel enthusiast, or a total foodie, have an eye for great design or appreciate beautiful people, you’ll find that there’s something for you in any part of the country. Considering everything that’s happening in the world, it’s great to be able to take a holiday in a place where you know you’re truly welcome.
