Hikes in Sweden
Sweden awaits you: The sparsely populated country in northern Europe is perfect for beautiful hikes in a varied, peaceful nature. Numerous hiking trails lead you along the coast, through dense forests and up impressive mountain peaks. From short tours across the plains and through the hilly landscape in the south to sporty adventures in the high mountains, Sweden is a true paradise for hiking.

Hiking in harmony with nature
In Sweden, the „Allemansrätten” – (Everyman's Right) applies. It means that you can move freely in nature as long as you treat it with respect. You have free access to nature, which means you can go wild camping, swim in lakes and even make campfires under the stars in the evening. So if you're going on a multi-day hike, you can head straight out with camping gear. In addition, always plan enough time for spontaneous side trips or small adventures like a kayak tour!

Hiking in the fells
The Fjäll is probably one of the most popular areas in Sweden for outdoor sports. The term refers to a rocky plateau that lies above the coniferous forest line. In northern Scandinavia, this is between 500 m and 900 m – and yet here we find vegetation of low trees, heather and lichens that we only find in the Alps, for example, at an altitude of 1500 m.
The Swedish Hiking Association STF (Svenska Turistföreningen) takes care of the maintenance of the Kungsleden and other hiking trails in Nodschweden. The STF also manages cabins and the popular fjällstationer (mountain stations), which offer simple ¨overnight accommodation in the wilderness.
