TRAVEL & TRANSPORTATION
Our wedding is taking place southwest of Stockholm in Södermanland province (aka ‘Sörmland’).
If you are traveling from the Unites States, we recommend working with Tone Evensen at Scandia Travel to assist with any air travel booking. Please refer to the Morlan Pred Wedding so that she can help coordinate flights and arrivals. (415) 552-5300 http://scandiatravelsfo.com
We suggest booking flights in January 2016 for best rates and options.
For our American guests and others overseas, we suggest arriving by Wednesday July 27th at the latest. This will allow you time to relax, enjoy the scenery, and adjust to the time zone. Sweden is 9 hours ahead of California and that, combined with the long daylight hours, can be a challenge. Fortunately, the wedding is a late afternoon/evening affair so you should be in good mid-day form.
You will be flying into Arlanda Airport (ARN), located north of Stockholm. Drive time from this airport to Södertuna Slott is approximately 1-1/2 hours (see below for rental car information).
For those local to Europe, you can also fly into Skavsta Airport (NYO). This smaller local airport is located roughly 1/2 hour south of Södertuna Slott and is serviced by Ryan Air, among others.
We recommend Hertz car rental at Arlanda Airport - you can even rent a Volvo! http://www.hertz.com
Note to American drivers: Car rentals in Europe (including Sweden) start with manual transmissions; automatic transmissions are considered an upgrade. Be sure you make the right reservation for your transmission skill set! Driving in Sweden should be relatively easy for you as they drive on the same side of the road as Americans. Just be prepared for traffic circles and to move to the right if another driver speeds up behind you.
Public Transportation from Airport
If you would prefer not to rent a car, we are considering arranging for vans to pickup guests who are arriving at the same time. Let us know if you're interested in this when you RSVP.
It is also possible to take public transport. The trains and buses in Sweden are excellent. There is a train station right in the airport that will take you to Stockholm for a transfer to the Gnesta line. It is really quite fast, but can be challenging when you are really tired. Google maps does a good job of plotting the trip.
