Find family holiday resorts in Sweden

Family holiday resorts Sweden are about spending time with the family in a calm and peaceful environment. For a rising number of families, holiday no longer means city exploring and sandy beaches.

Instead, it’s about reconnecting with nature, enjoy farm to table foods, and spend quality time with family. What better place to do that than on a working farm?

Farm stays have been a growing trend in Europe since the 2000’s, and are now growing in popularity in Scandinavia. Farm stays are also holiday resorts, as you will find everything you need on the farm.

For example, restaurants, cafes, convenient stores, small shops, on-site events and activities for the whole family.
