The clean air, smelling of spruce and moss in the summer and of newly fallen snow in winter, is unforgettable in Sweden. Produced by a native, this audiobook is the definitive guide to a country that's nearly 80 percent mountains, vast forests, lakes, and wilderness. But this book covers all, from cities and villages to the Midnight Sun Coast and the islands to the Lapland area: art, culture, folklore, shopping, walks, water sports, and more.
It offers an ideal mix of practical travel info along with activities. And the fun is for everyone, no matter their age or ability. Comprehensive background information - history, culture, geography, and climate - gives you a solid knowledge of each destination and its people. Regional chapters take you on an introductory tour, with stops at museums, historic sites, and local attractions. Places to stay and eat; transportation to, from, and around your destination; practical concerns; tourism contacts - it's all here!
Detailed regional and town routes feature walking and driving tours. Then come the adventures - fishing, canoeing, hiking, rafting, llama trips, and more. Never galloped along a beach on horseback, trekked up a mountain, or explored ancient sites? Adventure Guides include extensive lists of recommended outfitters, with all contact details: email, website, phone number, and location.
