The best glamping spots around Stockholm

The information in this guide may be affected by covid-19.

If you prefer the great outdoors to come complete with creature comforts such as proper beds, luxury linen, wood-fired stoves and breakfast delivered to your door, glamping could be the thing for you. Glamping - "'glamorous camping" - is a relatively new concept in Sweden but a few places have hopped on the trend in recent years, providing luxurious accommodation in canvas bell tents in beautiful natural surroundings. Whether you fancy a lake view in the Sörmland countryside or a seafront position in the Stockholm archipelago, our guide will lead you to the best places to spend the night under the stars without having to wrestle with tent poles or soggy sandwiches.
