The most beautiful villages in Sweden

Sweden is probably not the first place that comes to mind when planning a vacation. However, this country located in northern Europe has much to offer the traveler: cultural activities, outdoor activities, energy cities, modernity, extensive forests, lakes, mountains, a very diverse coastline … As you can see, there are many reasons that invite you to travel to the largest of the Scandinavian countries.

What we are going to do today at Vuela Viajes is tell you about another of the main reasons to visit Sweden: its beautiful and unknown towns. So, next we are going to tell you about some of the most beautiful in the country. Would you like to join us? We assure you that you will not regret it!


The first destination on our list could not be other than Fjällbacka, a beautiful fishing village located in the municipality of Tanum. This is where Camila Läckberg was born who, although she places her novels throughout the Bohusländ district, has Fjällbacka as her central point. It barely has about 900 inhabitants, but it looks like something out of a fairy tale. Quiet and peaceful, this community was founded in the 17th century and stands out for its cobbled streets, its white and red houses and the excellent seafood that can be consumed here. In addition, the town offers a beautiful archipelago and islands ideal for kayak excursions. Without a doubt, the best time to visit this place is in summer.


We also want to tell you about the town of Mora, which is located in Dalarna county. Very visited in summer, this place seems to have begun to be inhabited around 4,000 BC. Of course, the oldest buildings that we can find here date from the 7th century. In addition to its long history, Mora is known for its ski events. Nor do we want to forget to mention the summer solstice festival, a very important celebration in the cultural life of the town, in which the inhabitants sing and dance traditional music and dress in popular costumes.


The next town on our list is Eksjö, a place that we could define as idyllic , especially if we refer to its old town, where about 50 wooden houses can be found. In fact, it is one of the best-preserved wooden old towns on the entire continent. Its cobbled streets and small squares surrounded by beautiful wooden walls also attract attention.


Another town that cannot be missing on our list is Klovsjo, which, with about 500 inhabitants, is the most charming. And it is that here we can find from a beautiful lake that forms a large bay, to traditional houses, which are grouped around a white and red church. In addition, it is important to bear in mind that it is a town in which many ecological measures have been taken in recent years that have significantly improved the environment.

Marstrand Island

We also want to tell you about Mastrand Island, where we find a picturesque and beautiful fishing village that offers history, culture and beautiful buildings. Thus, its colorful houses, the Carlsten Fortress from the 18th century, the art galleries and the many shops of crafts and local products stand out. This island has also served as inspiration for another Swedish writer: Ann Rosman.

Lappstan Arvidsajur

We finish our tour of the most beautiful villages in Sueca in Lappstan, a parish town dating back to the 17th century. This was where the Sami gathered to celebrate their religious festivals. Unfortunately, only a few of the huts remain.
