Sweden: A Nature Lover’s Paradise

With sky-stretching, snowy mountains in the north, a forested midland and wildflower-carpeted meadows in the south, Sweden is a nature lover’s paradise — especially (but not exclusively) during the summer.

As I write this month on Independent Traveler, Swedes spend a lot of time outdoors during the warmer months to take advantage of their country’s ecological assets. There are also plenty of cultural and historical attractions to keep you busy, including literary walking tours and festivals celebrating native peoples.

To get the most out of your visit, fill up on coffee — Sweden’s fixation — and get outdoors. And when your achy muscles have had enough, pamper yourself at a famed Swedish spa.
