Sights and activities in Sweden
Sweden, with its long-stretched and narrow geography, offers a very diverse and shifting landscape.
The northern parts are sparsely populated, full of deep forests, swamps, mountains and vast wildernesses. Some of the most stunning views in Sweden are found up here, such as the northern lights and the Scandinavian mountains, and there are tons of adventures and activities to be explored year-round. Northern Sweden is huge and actually cover 60 % of the country; it’s a long drive to see it all but it will definitely be worth your while.
The southern and middle parts of Sweden has a more open, agricultural landscape and beautiful leafy forests. There are lots of interesting cities and cultural sights, and all the lakes and plentiful coastal areas provide some great stops for a summer holiday. Almost 90 % of the population live in the middle and southern parts of Sweden, primarily in the regions around the three major cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö.
As far as activities goes, it’s never difficult to find adventures and exciting things to do in Sweden. We’ll do our best to provide some interesting suggestions on this site, and hopefully anyone can find some inspiration.
