Discover Sweden

Vacation in Skåne - not only for Wallander fans

Your holiday in Sweden's southern most region Skane (Skåne) you can design in many different ways - combining a classic summer resort by the sea, as hearty holiday in a log cabin on private lake, or a city break in Malmo (Malmö), Lund and Helsingborg, with trips to the Kingdom of Crystal. You can also simply enjoy a few lazy days at sea in the picturesque coastal town or Mölle Torekov.


In the past decade, Malmo (Malmö) has undergone a radical, post-industrial change. The cosmopolitan city has its shore "recaptured" in which a new and lively district was created with interesting architecture. Nevertheless, Malmo remains a small, manageable and comfortable city in which everything is within walking distance. The Western Harbour in Malmö is brand new district, which is characterized by fantastic architecture, green spaces and a unique view of the Sound.


The emerging university town in the south already has to offer with its student flair (one in three people are enrolled at the local university) and the rich cultural offer plenty of room for discovery. Here we also find the oldest cathedral in Scandinavia from the year 1103. Many shops and cafes invite you to stroll and relax in the city and the beautiful surroundings.

The journey from London to Sweden by Eurolines

All Eurolines’ coaches have on-board toilet and washroom facilities, reclining seats and air-conditioning as standard.
 Sometimes the coach that picks you up from your departure point has only the final destination displayed on the front windscreen. This is because the majority of Eurolines routes include multiple stops and it would be impractical to display every stop on the front windscreen. Also, you may have booked a journey which requires a change of coach. In both examples, please ask the driver to confirm that his/her coach is going to the destination stated on your ticket. 
Eurolines put the safety and comfort of passengers first, so the vehicles are equipped with a large number of safeguards. The operators are using modern vehicles with large panoramic windows and increased legroom. 
Eurolines coach services to Sweden depart from Victoria Coach Station in London which is located close to Victoria Underground and bus stations. Eurolines coaches arrive at the main bus terminals in Sweden. Buy a ticket online now

The carrier provides service to any person who has purchased a ticket. Number of tickets for the designated route is limited to the number of seats. Having a valid ticket guarantees you use of the service (seat on the coach), however it does not reserve any particular place.
Single and return tickets (with the indicated date and time) are for a specific journey, you cannot miss the departure, because you will lose the ticket.
Best to buy tickets well in advance. Eurolines has many discounts for those who decide to purchase tickets in advance. Constant, although a slight discount is provided for youth, elderly and disabled people. Up to 50% discount is provided for children. Unless you get a good promotional fare (mostly the FunFare ticket), return fares are much cheaper than two single fares each way.

An alternative route to Sweden

Using this option you can without any problems reach by coach not only to the towns and cities previously mentioned, but also Stockholm, Knäm, Ljungby, Jönköping, Linköping, Norrköping, Svinesund. Eurolines lets you to choose such an option.
You can take an evening Eurolines from London to Lille at Tuesdays, Thursdays & Sundays, then take a connecting coach from Lille to Sweden next morning. While in Lille, you can spend time for a meal or sightseeing. This is the simplest, inexpensive and scenic way to go.
However, if you decide on this option you must make two separate purchases of tickets, from the UK to Lille on Eurolines UK, and from Lille to selected destinations in Sweden, on Eurolines FR.

Using both options, along the way you'll see amazing landscapes in France, Belgium, Germany & Denmark. The modern design of Eurolines’ coaches and comfortable seats guarantee a pleasant stay on board. This journey includes the Channel Tunnel crossing and a ferry transfer across the Fehmarn Belt.

The best way to protect against unexpected accidents is to buy travel insurance. In my opinion, so that the journey is stress-free, you should never travel without travel insurance. You can insure only for travel, it’s possible directly on the Eurolines website, during ticket purchase. You can also insure individually with another insurer. This will be the insurance that will apply during the journey and while in a foreign country. The insurance should cover: loss of cash and goods, cancellation of travel and medical treatment abroad. If you travel several times a year and want to save money, you may want to buy an annual insurance policy. Click here to buy insurance.
