Bearing in mind its northern location, it would be easy to think of Sweden as a country with a harsh climate. However, the heat from the Gulf Stream makes the average temperature in southern Sweden no lower than -2°C in February, rising to +21.1°C in July. On sunny days between May and August temperatures can rise to +30°C in the air and +24°C in the sea and lakes. September often promises pleasant Indian summer.
Sweden’s changing seasons affect nature, daylight, temperature and even to some extent the Swedes themselves. Every season has its perks.
