Nature is Sweden's major attraction, a land of unspoilt, colourful natural landscapes. From the immaculate white of the winter snow and ice to the earthy greens in spring, to the deep blue waters of the coastlines and lakes.

Not surprisingly, the first national park in Europe was established here in 1909.
In the north, the vegetation is limited to conifers due to the arctic temperatures, while in the south visitors will be able to admire impressive, majestic oaks and endless beech forests. The coastline is the longest in Europe, stretching for over 7000 km. There are also over 100,000 lakes adding even more beauty to this unique landscape.
