I have just come back from a very pleasant four day trip to Sweden with Naturetrek.
There was a lot of lying snow and a great deal of ice but no new snowfall.
Although the numbers of species were small the views of them were fantastic. I had two new birds, Siberian Jay and Pygmy Owl and a new mammal - Elk (or Moose).
The Swedish are very nice people and the hotel we stayed at was very comfortable. I would recommend going to Sweden even though it is a little expensive.
Here are a selection of photos I took out there
