With the summer weather now taking hold, it’s time to leave your house and take in the Swedish fresh air. Here are some of the best outdoor activities in Sweden that will help you enjoy the country’s unspoiled nature.
With the right to roam freely in forests, lakes, islands and mountains, the Swedish outdoors is a playground. Whether you want something sporty and active, or just an unforgettable experience to share with friends or family, you’ll find what you’re looking for.

Sweden has 29 national parks which are all free to access and nearly 400 hiking trails maintained by the Svenska Turistföreningen (the Swedish Tourist Association).
