Sun- secure

SOLSÄKRA (Swe) = “sun-secure”
• to ensure you get some sun action on your vacation by getting a ticket to a warmer/sunnier destination (such as Greece, Crete, Turkey or Mallorca) rather than hoping for (unreliable) sun in Sweden during the weeks you have off work in the summer.

The travel agencies notice that during a particularly cold spring like this one, many people decide to sun-secure/solsäkra their vacations as early as in April.

SOLSEMESTER (Swe) = “sun vacation”
is a slightly older, but related word. This term cannot be used when talking about vacation time within the borders of Sweden (no matter how sunny it is during that particular time). A “sun vacation” always implies a vacation that is set abroad.
