Sweden as a country is perhaps better known to most in Britain by some of its iconic images such as Abba, Ingmar Bergman and IKEA, than for the modern realities behind its proverbial egalitarian society.  We hope this record of our 2013 travels around Sweden will serve to redress this lack of genuine understanding. The real Sweden is not to be found just by a brief visit to Stockholm, but by spending longer time exploring the far corners of this vast country, particularly the largely unvisited north, with its wealth of fascinating history, culture and natural beauty and its unprecedented array of wild flora and fauna.

We are pleased to present this series of travelogues, from our 20 week trip to Sweden, Lapland and Northern Norway in 2013, as an encouragement to others to consider this exceptionally beautiful country as a travel destination.
