Majestic Swedish fauna and flora

Sweden has more than 96,000 lakes, the two largest of which are located in the South, namely Lake Vätter and Lake Vänermeer. At the Alvastra on the Eastern shore of Lake Vätter, impressive remains of prehistoric settlements have been found. You can also relax at the Vänermeer, by taking a dip in the crystal-clear water of the lake. In the northern part of this beautiful lake, you will find the Lüro archipelago, a small holiday paradise. Here you can visit the Kristinehamn archipelago or even more fun: take the boat bus. Going on an adventure by sailing with the old sailing ship Bojorten is also an option.

Besides the many lakes, there are also large areas of untouched nature. This can be especially seen in the north of the country and the mountain area on the border with Norway. In the north, you will mainly find coniferous forests and in the far north, the forests turn into tundra with sparse tree growth. Towards the south, you will find a mixed deciduous forest with beech, oak, birch, etc. The nature in the area is comparable to Western and Central Europe. In the region of Central Sweden, you'll find a dense wilderness of unexplored forests and lakes. If you're looking for some time alone, take a walk in the woods. Alternatively, you can take a guided tour and get a chance to observe wild brown bears from a close distance.

Sweden is not only known for its diverse tree species but also for different types of flowers. On the sunny island of Visby, sometimes it is full of roses until winter, which creates a unique picture. Sweden is also known for many large animal species; the country has its own "big five". If you are lucky while you are exploring, you may be able to spot some of them. A large population of wild animals lives in the Swedish forests and mountain landscapes, including wolves, bears, lynx, moose, and wolverines. It is possible to spot wolves in the north of Sweden, but these animals know how to camouflage themselves and are often only visible at night. It is important to remember that nature in Sweden is protected by nature reserves and national parks.

Summer activities

One of the top things to do when visiting Sweden in summer is to enjoy the beaches. In fact, to experience the softest and lightest sand, it is advised to opt for a beach in the south. Make sure then to check out Nature.house cottages close to the sea. Cycling in Sweden is a fun activity to do while travelling alone, with your family or as a couple. You can do it based on your preferences opting to see city life or the beautiful countryside landscapes. One of the most popular areas for a cycling holiday while visiting Southern Sweden is around the small island of Hven.

If you are on a family trip, make sure to take your kid to Astrid Lindgren’s fairytale world. Here, it is possible to meet the characters and let the kids play in the imaginary world that has been built based on scenes from the movies. Also, it is a great activity to do in all seasons. Swedish nature is perfect for hiking lovers; you will be able to find many hiking trails around the country. One of the most popular is Höga Kusten where you can experience some real scenic views! While hiking in Sweden, bring some snacks, and have a picnic while enjoying the beautiful surroundings.

If you are interested in castles and history, the southern part of the country will be the best fit. Here you will be able to see many castles and you might also visit some of them from inside. The most known castles are Drottningholm, Gripsholms Castle, Kalmar Castle, and Läckö Castle. Would you like to relax like the locals tend to do? Then rent a boat and get into the waters. If your passion is fishing, try out your luck in the Swedish waters.

Winter activities

If you’re looking for a magical experience that you will never forget, then make sure you visit Abisko. It is a small town in Northern Sweden that is famous for its Northern Lights. Even though there is not a 100% chance to see the magical lights, it is worth trying. During spring the beautiful Kungsträdgården in central Stockholm is turned into its signature pink heaven with cherry blossom; but during winter it’s turned into a romantic and lovely place to go for ice skating.

If you are willing to visit Northern Sweden in winter, you will be able to enjoy the snow for a longer period of time compared to the other regions. For this reason, the snowmobile is a great way of transportation, but it’s also a lot of fun and definitely one of the unique things to do in Sweden as a tourist! To shake up your regular Christmas, attend “julbord” which means that you gather family or friends or co-workers and feast on Christmas food and liquor. This will allow you to experience some real Swedish culture and cuisine. If you are a winter sports lover, then snowboarding in Sweden would definitely be a great experience.
