Looking for some inspiration into your next SUP adventure? How about a weekend break to Malmö, Sweden!
Malmö is a vibrant and multicultural city located in the southernmost part of the country. With its rich history, modern architecture, and diverse cultural scene, Malmö offers a delightful mix of old-world charm and contemporary attractions. From narrow cobblestone streets and colourful buildings that transport you back in time to modern Architecture; Malmö boasts a reputation as a hub of contemporary design and architecture with the most famous landmark being the Turning Torso, a twisting skyscraper that stands tall as the tallest building in Scandinavia.
Better still, the city offers a variety of places to SUP. From the waterways that wind their way through the city centre, to the open ocean between Sweden and Denmark with picturesque harbours and stunning white sandy beaches, to the sheltered canals - there is something for everyone, and every weather condition.
And getting there from the UK (and much of Europe) is easier than you may think. Whilst most people will start looking for flights to Sweden, where the major transport hub is Stockholm in the North (and a long way from Malmo), the nearest international airport is actually Copenhagen in Denmark. From the airport it's an easy 30 minute train journey between the two countries and you are into Central Malmo. Trains run three times an hour on average and go from the airport terminal - it really couldn't be easier. And when it comes to accommodation, there are plenty of places to stay, for all budgets.
Kit-wise, It's easy to take an iSUP with you on the flight, but there is also a great SUP community and a number of clubs in Malmo where you could organise hire of kit in advance.
Amazing food, friendly locals and a range of SUP locations to explore, what's not to love?! We will be offering guided weekend Sweden trips soon, follow our social channels to get the latest info first!
