What is Sportlov?
Between Weeks 7 and 10, a week-long holiday takes place in Sweden called ‘Sportslov’ or simply, Sports break. This is the period when you will find most Swedish families leaving cities and towns to head out to ski slopes.
Did you know - Historically, Sportlov was introduced during World War II ration coke (fossil fuel, not the drink!) which was used for heating in schools.
