How Swedish are your summer holiday habits? 

It can take new arrivals a few years to fully 'get' what the ridiculously long Swedish summer break is really about. Take our quiz to find out how far you are along the path to true Swedishness. 

 

Congratulations you are fully, 100 percent Swedish! 

You have become one with your adopted country (at least so far as summer holidays are concerned). 

You are a summer newby. Try again next year! 

You have failed to take some of the first steps to embracing the summer, Swedish style, and are basically just one up from a tourist. 

Halfway! Your holiday habits are semi-Swedish. 

You are already doing summery things that would be unusual in most other countries. 

 

How many weeks did you take off work? 

 

Did you swim in a lake or off an island in the evening? 

 

Did you visit a 'loppis' flea market, ideally in a small village?

 

Did you pick blueberries, blackberries, cloudberries, or lingonberries? 

 

Did you sit outside with a blanket on a freezing cold summer's evening? 

 

Did you have a short 'road trip' to visit a friend or friends in their summer houses?

Did you leave Sweden and spend a week or more somewhere really sunny? 

Did you use an outdoor toilet or 'utedass'? 

 

Did you barbecue 'varmkorv' sausages? 

 

Did you eat at least one ice cream a day?
