Swedish Getaway Contest!

The folks at Saveur.com and SAS Scandinavian Airlines are giving away a 5 day vacation for 2 which will allow you to drive a primo Volvo loaner car to four culinary & cultural destinations throughout Sweden.
Imagine flying from New York, Chicago or DC to Gothenburg            Sweden, where they will set you up with a luxurious Volvo and map coordinates to Kvanum for a one-night stay at Bjertorp Slott, an idyllic 35 room castle where you’ll enjoy dinner  in the hotel’s restaurant followed by breakfast in the morning.

Next you’ll drive to Ljungskile, home of the Swedish football (soccer) team of the same name,  for a nights stay featuring a delicious dinner and breakfast  for two at the quaint seaside B&B,Villa Sjötorp. While here you can take in the town’s  medieval architecture or visit the Norwegian Castle of Bohus in the nearby town of Kungälv.

Then it’s off to take advantage of Gothenburg’s city life as your third and fourth nights will be spent at either the elegant Elite Park Avenue Hotel or the palatial Elite Plaza Hotel.

Gothenburg is Sweden’s second largest city complete with a natural history museum, botanical garden and numerous cafes and spas. While here you won’t be able to resist Kungsportsavenyn, this city’s version of  New York’s 5th Avenue or Chicago’s Magnificent Mile.  At over a half mile long, this “Avenyn” (meaning “Avenue”) is a shopper’s delight where  everything from vintage records and books to traditional fashions made from elk’s skin can be found.

Your drive through Sweden ends at Ängavallen, a 100% sustainable farm featuring organically grown produce and free range livestock raised and harvested on the premises. Located in the town of Vellinge, less than 10 minutes from the Höllviken Bay, Ängavallen has been the reciepent of the “Pour le mérite gastronomique”  award from the Gastronomic Academy’s E. M. Sandahl Foundation numerous times over.
