Sweden on a Budget

Choosing the right season will help you cut costs on your Sweden vacation. Go for a shoulder-season or even a winter trip to save on airfare and accommodations. Alternative lodging options, such as home exchanges, homestays or farmstays, are a good bet if you're seeking a place to stay on a dime. Keep in mind that Sweden's currency is the kronor -- not the euro -- so exchange rates within the country will differ from those in most other European nations.

Best Time to Go to Sweden

Sweden's high and low seasons correspond with those of the rest of Europe. Prices rise and crowds get thicker in the summer. Shoulder seasons -- spring and fall -- are an excellent time to visit the country. During winter, temperatures drop and most parts of the country become pretty cold, but skiers and those seeking a glimpse of the northern lights should consider a winter trip nevertheless. Summer brings balmy temperatures (for the most part) and extremely long days -- but prices for travel to Sweden will be at their highest in June, July and August.
