Visit Sweden, a country where the archaeological sites will impress as much as the landscape does. From its vast archipelago and elusive Northern Lights, to its aesthetically stunning interior design and brightly coloured buildings that line cobbled streets, it is a truly charming destination in more ways than one. Stand before the mighty Swedish warship Vasa in Stockholm, observe burial mounds at the site of Gamla Uppsala and visit one of the great castles of Baroque Europe – Skokloster Castle. Ancient mythology and folklore await here on an archaeological tour with Brightwater.
