You’ve still got 10 days to take advantage of the deal that SAS (www.flysas.co.uk) are offering on regular flights from Heathrow to Stockholm this month, starting at £170 return, reports the Telegraph.

Try a new accommodation experience at the Nordic Light Hotel (Vasaplan 7, Norrmalm, 0046 8505 63000, www.nordiclighthotel.se) where the bedrooms have mood-enhancing light therapy systems that transform the rooms and prove to be real SAD syndrome busters. The hotel’s interior is stylish, with frequently changing art displays in the lobby. Doubles start from £141.

Have lunch in Stockholm's oldest restaurant, Den Gyldene Freden (Österlånggatan 51, Gamla Stan, 0046 824 9760, www.gyldenefreden.se), the regular haunt of Nobel judges and academics. Local delicacies such as pork belly with liquorice juice and thinly sliced smoked reindeer with almond potatoes are served in one of the restaurant’s atmospheric candlelit salons. Main courses cost around £28.

And finally Stieg Larsson fans can join the Millennium Walking Tour, which takes in key locations from his popular novels. The tours take place on Saturdays at 11.30am and start from Bellmansgatan 1. Get your tickets (£11), from the Stockholm Tourist Centre or City Museum (www.stadmuseum.stockholm.se). For further information go to www.visitsweden.com and www.stockholmtown.com
