Antonette in Sweden

In the summer of 2015 I traveled to Sweden for the first time and visited the Småland region. In 2018 I returned and made a one month roadtrip through Sweden, which I consider the base for my passion for Sweden. In the summer of 2023 I bought a house in Swedish Lapland and moved up north, on my own.

When I’m not traveling for work, I spent my free time in Sweden I in nature. In the summer I enjoy hiking and often head out on multi day adventures. I also enjoy (ice) fishing, berry picking and finding edible mushrooms.

My favorite places in Sweden

Vålådalen

Vålådalen nature reserve is one of my favorite places to go for hiking. The Vålådalens fyrkanten is a beautiful multiday hike but there’s also plenty of shorter day hikes that will bring you to some amazing places! And: without many international tourists so definitely worth your time!

Grövelsjön in Dalarna

Grövelsjön is located in the far northwest of the province of Dalarna, on the border with Norway. It is a true paradise for hikers and has hardly been discovered by international tourists. From the lake you can be above the tree line within half an hour’s walk and take the most beautiful hikes!

Östersund

One of my favorite cities in Sweden is Östersund, located in the middle of Sweden. The city is quite compact, making most sights accessible on foot. Be sure to visit the beautiful Jamtli museum and don’t forget to have a fika at one of the many coffee shops.

Småland

Småland is one of my favorite regions in the south of Sweden. Spend a day, or two, paddling through the beautiful Lake Åsnen National Park and freedom camp on a beach in the middle of nature. Växjo is also worth a visit, it’s a small city with plenty to explore.
