Nyköping nestles the east coast of Sweden, where the Nyköping river flows into the Baltic Sea and the magnificent Swedish archipelago. Nyköping is just 1 hour from capital city Stockholm and only 7 minutes from Stockholm-Skavsta airport. Nyköping, which is over 800 years-old is a thriving bustling town; history and modernity is all around you. For example the 18th century fisherman’s cottages threading down the hill to stately Nyköping Castle and on to Nyköping Marina, your gateway to the Swedish archipelago. Nyköping has a charm all its own; it’s equal parts seagulls and ice-cream, horse-back riding and fine dining, as well as Swedish handicrafts/designer shopping and historical discovery in the many castles, churches and historical sites in and around Nyköping. The attractions of Nyköping and the surrounding Sörmland countryside are so accessible you can spend the morning browsing the many Swedish and international brand shops of Västrastorgatan and Östrastorgatan, and in the evening take a guided wildlife tour where you might just spot elk, fox, red deer and other wildlife. And if you want to finish the evening off in style visit the marina where there is a wide choice of fine restaurants and bars. If you are the outdoor type Nyköping is the perfect destination. Sörmlandsleden is a 1,000 km hiking track that spectacularly wends its way around the province. If cycling is your gig then the Näckrosleden cycleway is a fantastic way of experiencing the countryside around Nyköping. And being a coastal town, water is all around us and there are canoeing, kayaking and other water adventures, as well as boat trips out to the impossibly beautiful archipelago.
