Exploring Sweden

We invite you to join us in exploring Sweden. This is our home turf, but there is always something new to explore. Towns and localities are spread out over an area equal to the size of California. It is the third-largest country by area in the European Union after France and Spain, but the population of around 10 million places Sweden only as the 12th largest. This makes Sweden a perfect place to both enjoy European cities as well as the nature that is never far away.

We have visited each one of the towns and villages that we have written about and try to include as much information as possible, both from our research before going as well as what we have found out afterward. Unfortunately, we have not been able to see every single sight in each place. The posts are not only meant as guides for you, but they are also for ourselves. It is our way to share and at the same time take notes if we ever return. And all photos are our own from our visits, weather and season of the year might not always have been the most optimal for a visit.

We have sorted the places we have written about by the historical provinces that they belong to. They might not have any political or administrative importance but still affects the culture within their borders. Below you can either find the posts using the map or explore them region by region. Exploring Sweden has never been easier to explore.

    Where would you recommend for 2 – 80 year olds who like mountains, lakes and old seaports off season?

      Hello Paul. Finding everything in one place or even region might be hard. You have a very long coast in Sweden with old seaports to be found in regions such as Södermanland, Småland, and Skåne. There is even historical seaports in lakes such as Mälaren and Vänern. Places like Trosa, Nyköping, Västervik, Kalmar, and Simrishamn makes perfect stops also during the off season. The province of Södermanland also have plenty of beautiful lakes, but it gets even better in Dalarna where it is combined with smaller mountains. Both Södermanland and Dalarna is easy for traveling. To really enjoy the nature with lakes and mountains then provinces such as Härjedalen, Jämtland, and especially Lapland might be best, but it is also a bit more demanding when traveling and might also require long distances on foot. This is made even harder when the first snow fall. So, my recommendation would be to combine the coast of Södermanland with the nature and tranquility of Dalarna. Especially if you arrive in Stockholm. 🙂
