The best of both worlds: that's what you find when you retreat into the countryside in Central Sweden. This is where North and South meet each other, and where big game such as bear, lynx, wolf and moose roam around on the outskirts of the civilized world. Here the colder, northern climate meets the milder, southern weather. You find plants from both colder and warmer regions here. The flat south with its agricultural character flows into a sloping, rougher woodland area, where you can experience real peace, space and tranquility.
Walking in Central Sweden provides a combination of everything beautiful that Sweden has to offer. A blend of nature and culture, of quiet and busy, from city to wilderness, from north and south, from big Swedish game to a visit to a cultural and industrial heritage that has been added to the UNESCO World Heritage list. With 22 routes, useful maps and GPS data, this walking guide will take you to some of the most beautiful spots. Walk, discover and experience it yourself, at your own pace!
Paul van Bodengraven and Marco Barten are both passionate hikers. They have published several walking guides so far, of which four have now been translated to English (Rhodes, Varmland, Dalarna and now Central Sweden). Besides their regular jobs, each year they use their holidays to work on a new guide, on destinations that haven't been covered by others. Each walk is undertaken and described by the authors. They also take all the photos. The concept of the guides differs from any other series with much emphasis placed on pictures.
