Seasons of Stockholm

The seasons of Stockholm resemble the seasons of New England. The region’s coastal climate means winter temperatures are not as cold as most imagine.

Fall in Stockholm

The long days of Swedish summer linger into the early fall months in Stockholm. Leaves turn, blanketing the city in color, before giving way to the cozy holiday season in December. Visiting the seasonal markets, viewing the lights of the city, and sampling traditional holiday treats leave our Fall students with lasting memories.
