Where's hot: Stockholm Archipelago
Friday 03 August 2012
Britain just can't seem to make up its mind. While much of continental Europe basks in a haze of sunshine, summer here appears to be more of a succession of false starts. But what if you want to flee the grey and don't want to pack your factor 50 or jostle for space on a beach?
Sweden offers vast wildernesses and cooling sea breezes to enjoy in summer; temperatures peak at around 22C in Stockholm. On the outer fringes of the city's spectactular archipelago of around 30,000 islands, Sandhamn offers sandy beaches, pretty red cottages and fresh seafood.
Taber Holidays offers four-night breaks here, plus two nights in Stockholm, for £1,184 including flights from Heathrow and a leisurely boat transfer from Stockholm to Sandhamn.
Until 27 August, there's the chance to join an evening wildlife safari (01274 875 199; taberhols.co.uk).
