  • Spa Day

Both of you can treat yourselves to a day at the spa. The most popular one in Stockholm is Sturebadet, where you can swim in a 29ºC pool, enjoy a steam or dry sauna, hydromassage, aromatherapy and relax rooms, group fitness training and a gym, as well as a Turkish Bath.

  • Spa and hotel with an Oriental twist

A favourite place among Swedes for a romantic escape is Yasuragi – a Japanese style spa, restaurant and hotel in the middle of the woods. You can book yourself a nice room, have some champagne and then head off to their spa and swim in their hot pools before getting ready for a delicious teppanyaki. And you can do this all wearing a cool yukata, a Japanese cotton robe, which all guests get to wear inside Yasuragi. Check our their spa packages for their Valentine’s promos.

  • How about a simple but classic Swedish fika?

Swedes love their fika and even if this is the most typical way of socialising with friends, family and significant others, it can also become romantic when you go to a place with a special theme, for example. With this purpose in mind we can strongly recommend Java Whiskers, Sweden’s first cat café. Think cats strolling around your feet or sleeping on a sofa next to you as you and your loved one sip on a cat-latte and sweeten your palates with a kanelbulle. A cute and lovely way to spend some time together!
