SpainSpain provides three important qualities that Swedes seek in a holiday destination – guaranteed sunshine, welcoming people and value for money. The country has continued to grow in popularity as Swedes are deterred from travelling to Egypt and North Africa due to political and social unrest. The Spanish islands – the Balearics and the Canaries – have attracted a growing number of Swedes seeking sun and beach holidays in the summer and winter period. Improvements in terms of luxury developments have proved an attractive proposition for Swedish tourists. The island of Gran Canaria registered 333,139 Swedish tourists in 2013, rising 15% year on year, as revealed by the Gran Canaria Tourist Board. On average, Nordic tourists spend ten days when visiting the island of Gran Canaria. Travel to Spain is still quite seasonal as dictated by charter packages, but is becoming less so as Swedes now choose Spain in autumn and spring, and organise travel independently.In the Balearic Islands, the climate is Mediterranean, with mild winters and hot and sunny summers, a bit sultry but tempered by sea breezes.
In plains and coasts, the average temperature of January and February is between 9°C and 11°C (48°F and 52°F), while that of July and August is about 24/24.5°C (75/76 °F). Rainfall is generally not abundant, since it amounts to 400/450 mm (15.

The normal fees for each site range from about 30 LE – 80 LE ($5.20-$13.85)(1/2 price for students), which seems like quite a bit when thinking in Egyptian terms, but is really quite reasonable considering the significance.Travel to Egypt peaked in 2010 before the start of the Arab Spring Uprising in 2011 but according to Vagabond’s Travel Barometer 2014, Swedish travel to Egypt was down by a third in 2013. The Central Agency for Public Mobilisation and Statistics (CAPMAS) reports that in 2013, tourism was down substantially due to political instability, which culminated in president Morsi being ousted from the military.
