Easter fun with a Swedish twist:

While Easter traditions might have some similarities across Europe, Sweden has its own unique way of celebrating. Here's a glimpse into how Swedes embrace Easter: 

  • Påskbuffé: A feast for the senses: Swedes love a good buffet (buffé), and Easter is no exception. The Påskbuffé is a delicious spread of traditional dishes, including Janssons frestelse (a creamy potato, onion, and anchovy casserole), Gravad lax (cured salmon), and of course, eggs in all shapes and forms. No Easter table is complete without a slice of Påskrisbröd, a sweet, braided bread decorated with feathers. 
  • The thrill of the hunt: Egg hunts are a popular Easter activity for families with young children. Whether it's in the backyard or a nearby park, watching little ones search for colourful eggs filled with treats is a guaranteed source of laughter and excitement. 
  • Warming up the night sky: On Easter Eve, many Swedes gather around bonfires to welcome spring and chase away the winter chill. It's a beautiful and atmospheric tradition that brings people together. 
  • Fun with family: Easter Sunday is all about spending quality time with loved ones. Swedes enjoy leisurely brunches, play traditional games like kubb (a lawn bowling game), and simply relax and enjoy each other's company. 

Things to in Easter holidays in Sweden:

Easter holidays throws open the doors to a variety of experiences beyond the traditional celebrations. For a truly unforgettable Easter, consider these unique options:

  • Unleash your inner explorer:?Sweden's breath-taking archipelago beckons! Rent a kayak or join a guided tour to weave through the maze of stunning islands near Stockholm. Breathe in the fresh sea air, soak in the beauty of the landscape, and reconnect with nature's tranquillity.
