Outdoor Academy of Sweden in Swedish Lapland 2009

Whatever the type of outdoor activity you would like to engage in, you can most likely find it in Sweden.  Access to nature is valued and seen as something of a human right, and with thousands of lakes and forests, it is easy to see why.

Activities such as cycling, hiking, river-rafting, kayaking and alpine and Nordic skiing are all popular activities in Sweden’s vast outdoors.

Sweden is unique in the way that its cities are green and there is usually an abundance of greenery in the city centres. You are usually never far away from great outdoor experiences. This goes for both Stockholm and Gothenburg, Sweden’s first and second cities, that both have large archipelagos a short trip from the city centres.
