Days 1-4 in Sweden
After flying into Copenhagen, head to Malmö, Sweden’s third-largest city, with a cafe-heavy cobbled square and a 16th-century castle turned museum. Follow the coast to Gothenburg, where you can overnight at Salt & Sill, a floating hotel. The next morning, veer north toward Lake Vänern, Sweden’s largest body of inland water, where you can fish for monster salmon, rent a kayak in the town of Säffle, or charter a boat to explore Djurö National Park, a remote archipelago in the middle of the lake.
The Inlandsvägen, or inland road, is home to the highest concentration of quaint towns, set like constellations in a sea of spruce, alder, and pine. It’ll seem like the road goes on forever, but in Älvdalen, barely a blip in the forest, is Tre Björnas lodge, where you can overnight and wake up to fresh breads, cloudberry jam, and moose sausage. The drive to Östersund that day is just as long, but once there, the sleek Frösö Park Hotel is a welcome shot of clean, Scandinavian design.
