Hiking
Hiking in Sweden is hiking in unspoilt nature

You must consider, that free hiking in the Swedish forests and nature is not without risks. Often there is no standard signage. So one must navigate themselves in nature and must be in possession of detailed maps. Also include a compass, knife and a bottle with water to the standard equipment. Only in this way you can start the hike on a responsible way.
