Farm stays in Sweden

It’s official. Farms are trendy. And an untouched Swedish countryside farm could be just the spot to start that book you’ve been meaning to write, propose, have a mid-life crisis or take the family with an air of Huckleberry Finn adventure.

Farm holiday at Larsbo gård in Hälsingland

The farm stay concept is organized by Bo på Lantgård (literally meaning, ‘Staying on a farm’). You can opt for self-catering or bed & breakfast. It’s a wholesome type of holiday – fresh farm eggs, freshly baked farmhouse bread and farm animals. And if you opt for self-catering, be assured that the farm hosts will not bother you unless you want it. Swedes excel in respecting privacy.

Bo på Lantgård even organize the farm stays into themes. Choose from a horse, fishing, motor biking or conference theme with accommodation options ranging from country cottage style to manor houses.

Tips? Leave your Louboutins at home and bring footwear and rain/snow gear good for roughing it a bit. And pack your swimwear for lake swims or for a winter time roll in the snow after a sauna. But you could chance it without. Sheep usually aren’t offended by nudity, neither are Swedes.
