Sweden

A return to where it all began

Our sixth school year began in a city so nice, we just had to visit it twice: Stockholm, Sweden. Once again, we partnered with the Young Business Creatives IB School, who taught us so much about Swedish hospitality and culture during our first term here in 2010.

Like the Class of 2014 before them, our current students found much to love in the “Venice of the North.” Those looking to indulge their appetite for all things viking found themselves in barbarian heaven, with many of Stockholm’s museums and exhibits documenting the history of Sweden’s savage seafarers in great detail. And our young shutterbugs who prefer to keep things contemporary found endless inspiration for their travel snapshots at the Fotografiska photography museum.

As beautiful as Stockholm’s Gamla Stan (Old Town) may be, it pales in comparison to the natural beauty that lies just beyond the district’s cobbled streets. For a week in November, we packed our bags and headed to Sweden’s far northern reaches, where we turned our attention to the Sami way of life. As we snowshoed and dogsledded among reindeer and arctic foxes, we enriched our understanding of the Sami customs and traditions that have been preserved since ancient times. The week capped off with a visit to Abisko National Park, where we basked in the silent, pitch-black wilderness and stared in awe at the colorful curtains that make up nature’s most spectacular phenomena, the Aurora Borealis.
