    A mini-trekking in Grövelsjön, Sweden

    A few weeks ago I told you about pretty Grövelsjön in Sweden and how we traveled there from the Netherlands.

Here’s how we enjoyed our mini-trekking in Grövelsjön, Sweden.     We’re planning a hike The great thing about Sweden is the Everyman’s Right: in other words, the freedom to roam where you like.

    Grövelsjön: a hikers paradise in Dalarna, Sweden

    The best cities in Sweden to visit this year

    Although I am more of a nature person myself, I usually enjoy visiting a city in Sweden during my travels as well.

The other best cities in Sweden to visit I mention in this article I visited during my nature trips as part of the trip.   Personally, I always enjoy exploring northern cities. The atmosphere is generally relaxed, I love the fine shops and the special architecture that are so characteristic of Scandinavia. In addition, I regularly…
