Nature tourism

10 vacation tips from klimatsmartsemester.se Text: Editorial Photo: Adobe Stock

1. HOP ON A BOAT from Stockholm to Svart-

sö with beautiful hiking trails along the sea, over meadows and through forest. Nature is magnificent and the city heat blows away in the sea breeze. Overnight stay at STF’s hostel. You can also cycle around the island if you prefer it.

2. LYSEKIL BY BUS 841 which runs all the

way from Gothenburg to Lysekil and takes 2 hours. Take a trip to Grundsund where the TV series Saltön was recorded. Canoeing and diving are world class and dramatic rock formations are interspersed with idyllic small inserts.

3. JAMTLAND TRIANGLE WITH THE NIGHT TRAIN to Duved’s station and from

there a bus goes all the way to STF Storulvåns Fjällstation. The tour is 46 kilometres long and consists of three days of stages between Storulvåns, Sylarna and Blåhammarens Fjällstation. Eat well and live comfortably at the mountain stations or tents. It is also possible to take the tour with guide and full board.

4. GREBBESTAD is the centre for oyster

lovers, it’s also here you find the non-profit association Oyster Academy which organizes, among other things, the annual Oyster Opener competition. Go on oyster safaris and learn how to pick oysters. For those with diving certificates there is the opportunity to explore the world of oysters even more closely. 5. MIDNIGHT SUN IN LOFOTEN Take the night train to Lofoten in Norway and experience the breathtaking views from the mountains. The place where mountain and ocean meets.

6. TO HÖGA KUSTEN, Härnösand can you

take a fast train from Stockholm. The trip is excellent to do in a sweep from southern Sweden, but you can also jump off and take a quick stop in Stockholm on your way. Höga Kusten offers both outdoor activities and breathtaking scenery, as well as first-class tastings and cultural events.

7. ISLAND HOPPING in Gothenburgs south

archipelago. Cycle or ride a tram from central Gothenburg to Saltholmen where boat trips until the entire southern archipelago are offered. There is also the possibility of kayaking between the islands.

8. TAKE THE TRAIN TO MALMÖ, both from Sweden and Copenhagen. Great quality coffee, cosy wine bars and restaurants with a multicultural feeling. Walk along the water and look at the bridge that connects us to the continent. In Malmö there is also Sweden’s first packaging-free food store, which is worth a visit. 9. TAKE THE TRAIN TO HELSINGBORG and

enjoy a nice little harbour town that is perfect for a weekend trip. Have a coffee at one of the many cafes and walk along the water in the harbour. Just north of the city is Sofiero Castle. When the spirit falls on you, simply jump on the ferry across the strait to Helsingör.

10. COPENHAGEN ON BIKE Denmark’s capital is designed to be discovered by bicycle. On the Öresund train to Copenhagen you can bring your bike on board.
