    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. I visited Stockholm no less than four times for a city trip (what a lovely place) and I also went to Gothenburg on the west coast of Sweden for a city trip. 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…

    Kungsleden hike: from Kvikkjokk to Saltoluokta

    In the summer of 2018 we hiked two sections of the Kungsleden hike in Sweden: from Ammarnäs to Hemavan and from Kvikkjokk to Saltoluokta.

It’s August 2019 and we are in Norway, where we have rented a cabin in the Åkrafjord. Apart from one day we have only had rain so far and it doesn’t seem to get much better in the next days. We look at each other and know that staying in Norway is not an option. The next day we load our luggage in Rudolph the Volvo, get in the car and take off to our beloved Sweden. My friend knows a nice place where we could possibly…

    Wild camping in Sweden: this is what you should know

    One of the things we really love about Sweden is that you can go wild camping. The Everyman’s Right (Right of Public Access) in Sweden, or the Allemansrätten, means that you roam freely everywhere. This therefore not only applies to camping, but also to hiking, horse riding and canoeing, for example. During our various road trips in Scandinavia in recent years we have made the best use of the possibility of wild camping in Sweden. Since there are a number of rules regarding the freedom camping in Sweden, we have written this useful article for you so that you can prepare for your Sweden trip the best way possible. Enjoy…
