We specialize in guided bus-tours thoughout Sweden and other parts of Scandinavia. Our next tours are planned for June 12-25, 2018 and
August 7-20, 2018. Our
goal is to offer a wider variety
of different tours starting in
2019 where we expand the
travel area and offer tours
multiple times each year.
If you'd rather explore Sweden and Scandinavia on your own, let us help you plan your trip! We know how hard it can be to plan a vacation in a country and culture you are unfamiliar with. Do you rent a car? Do you take the train? Where do you buy tickets? What attractions do you go to? Etc.. For a small fee, we help you with anything from finding unique locations to visit, restaurants to dine at, hotels, event recommendations, how to get around, and much much more. You just tell us what you want out of the trip and we will tailor it specific to your needs.
Designs of Sweden is a gift shop located in downtown Stillwater, MN. They also have an online store (www.designsofsweden.com). Since both Designs of Sweden and Scandi Experience are owned and operated by the same family, it was only natural to collaborate together. Although the tours are operated by Scandi Experience you can still visit or contact Designs of Sweden with any questions you might have regarding current or upcoming tours. Designs of Sweden will stock all brochures and materials for all of Scandi Experience's tours. Conveniently located in downtown Stillwater, MN, Designs of Sweden's doors are open most days 11am-5pm year around.
We are a family owned and operated business. Siblings and co-owners Anna and Martin Hallkvist, are both native to Sweden and experts in the area of travel and tourism. After operating and guiding a number of smaller tours in Sweden over the past couple of years, Anna and Martin decided to start Scandi Experience in the fall of 2015. Our goal is to make each tour a truly unique experience that you can’t get anywhere else. We plan each and every event and location from our own experiences. If we have not experienced it, we will not offer it on the tour. That is why we call our business Scandi Experience. Opposed to other tour operators who just sell you the tour, we actually travel with you. Along with our friendly bus driver and our experienced tour guide we will be with you along the way to and answer any questions you might have, and we will be working
behind the scenes for the entirety of the tour to make sure you will have an unforgettable experience.
