8 Sweden hotel experiences to venture in 2018
Board the Arctic Circle train, visit “The Venice of the North” famously called Stockholm; welcome Sweden in 2018. Homeland to the Germanic ethnicity and culture, Sweden boasts euphoric sceneries too! While the country is an abode of exotic landscapes, it's also a treasure trove of offbeat stays for the experimental traveller, who is looking for more than a hotel experience to spice up his travel plans. Read on to know the quirkiest stay options in Sweden and tell us which one is your favourite!
Bring your Captain America fantasies alive as you fly into your accommodation and live in a real jumbo jet, right at Arlanda airport. Choose from waking up in a business class room or a shared dormitory, as they both overlook cotton clouds. Walk along the observation deck, fastening your seat belts as your adrenalin is bound to rush while experiencing the feeling of standing on a real jet’s wing! Jet set go!
Say goodbye to palaces and havelis as you get up close and personal into the Swedish wilderness. This exotic hotel ensures you are the only guest present during your stint in the forest and your loved ones. A famous tagline of the hotel, “We don’t offer wake up calls but birdsong is free of charge.” has already convinced us to book our first flights into Sweden. A “natural” way to welcome 2018, indeed!

Who says the synonym of “prison” is pain/Who says the word “prison comes with pain? This year, choose to invest either in a hotel or hostel here; that too in the heart of Stockholm in an old prison, converted into innovative accommodation. Enjoy a drink at the pub or relax in one of the “cells.” Our definition of “punishment” has surely changed! Thank you, Sweden!

Mines used only for precious metal extraction is a mundane concept.
