Sweden, Peace and Tranquility.
A population "density" of 20 inhabitants per square kilometer. Now that is a recipe for peace and calm, and an experience unlike any other.
We take great pride in "every person's right", i.e. the ability to stroll anywhere in the forest, even though it might be someone's private land.
This, combined with the low population density and the abundance of nature, means enjoying nature in various forms is a central part of Swedish life. We stroll in the forest, pick berries, mushrooms and other goodies from it, hunt in it, hike in the mountains, swim and fish in the countless lakes, rivers and streams, both summertime and wintertime!, cross country ski, ice skate, down hill ski etc, etc.
There is also a lovely slow pace to life, where the motto seems to follow the wise words of Mahatma Gandhi: "There is more to life than increasing its speed". Therefore "fika", coffee and cookies (preferrably 7 different types, for a proper fika!) with good friends as often as possible, is a very central part of everyday countryside life.
Our aim is to give you a sense of this during your stay with us, so all stress and meaningless worries will be left behind.
