Enjoy getting 'back to nature'? In Sweden you can enjoy a wonderful outdoor holiday with the whole family: rafts, fire making, and camping under the stars... And thanks to all the peace and quiet you can rediscover yourself.
Sweden is known worldwide for its pure, untouched nature, perfect to relax with your family or to get in touch with your inner camper. Beautiful walks and bike rides, canoeing, sitting on bench terraces. Enjoy your afternoons in Sweden! Spend the whole day outside and enjoy the rugged outdoors. You’ll actually have so much to do here that the kids will have fun, without an iPad! Plus, you’ll arrive home with great stories of adventures and the things you got up to!
Visit one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Stockholm. The city is built on fourteen islands, of which are connected by numerous bridges. Stockholm is the "Venice of the north' and in the centre you will find Europe's largest and most beautiful medieval city. If you’re travelling with kids, we’d reccommend visiting the island of Djurgården: here you'll find the world's largest open-air museum and a hands-on children's museum in Astrid Lindgren.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and cook, stirring frequently, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes; set aside. In a large bowl, combine ground beef, ground pork, Panko, egg yolks, allspice, nutmeg and onion; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Using a wooden spoon or clean hands, stir until well combined. Roll the mixture into 1 1/4-to-1 1/2-inch meatballs, forming about 24 meatballs .Add remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil to the skillet. Add meatballs, in batches, and cook until all sides are browned, about 4-5 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.To make the gravy, melt butter in the skillet. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Gradually whisk in beef broth and cook, whisking constantly, until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in sour cream; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in meatballs and cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through and thickened, about 8-10 minutes.Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.
