Seasons & Weather

Most people think of winter when they hear of Sweden. But because of the warm Gulf Stream and Sweden's many lakes, the climate here can be much milder than you might expect. Spring runs from March/April to May, summer from June to August, fall from September to October/November and winter from November/December to March/February.

July temperatures in Sweden average 13 to 17°C. February is usually Sweden's coldest month, with temperatures from - 22 to -3°C. In northern Sweden, winter temperatures often drop to -30°C, sometimes even lower. Snow covers the ground in southern Sweden from December to April, and in northern Sweden the first snowfall is often already in October. Most of the country is icebound in winter, but special ice breaking boats keep the major ports open.

Northern Sweden lies in the Land off the Midnight Sun and so has continuous daylight during part of the summer. The number of days of continuous daylight increases as one goes farther north. Southern Sweden never has continuous daylight, though it averages 19 hours of daylight a day in midsummer. In winter, Sweden has similar periods of continuous darkness. In the northernmost areas of the country the sun never rises above the horizon for about 2 months. Southern Finland has some daylight each day, though it receives only about 6 hours of daylight a day in midwinter. The winter night sky-especially in the northern areas- often becomes enriched with brilliant displays of the aurora borealis or Northern Lights.

Boat Cruising Seasons
The sailing season in Sweden is July-September and darkness falls for just 3 hours a day in high summer. So there is almost constant daylight as you sail the waters of the north, south, east and west coast. The sailing season rarely lasts beyond the end of September.
