Sweden boasts dramatically beautiful natural reserves and the nature of Sweden has been considered as one of the strongest assets of this country. Here we help you discover some of the best national parks in the Nordic nation.
If watching northern lights is your aim, then you must visit the Abisko National Park. This national park is located in Swedish Lapland and north of the Arctic Circle. The park is also very accessible: it takes only two hours to travel from Kiruna Central train station. Hiking and kayaking are two of the most popular activities at Abisko. When you get to the top of the hill, you can overlook the Swedish Lapland, mountains and fjords. A viewing platform is also set up in the Abisko Sky Station, just 10 minutes train ride from the national park.
Tyresta National Park is situated 20 kilometers away from Central Stockholm and this makes it one of the most accessible national parks in the country. The park lies on the eastern coast of Sweden and gives a panoramic view of the Baltic Sea. The park also has the largest coniferous forest in Sweden, with pine trees up to 400 years old. This is why the forest is home to many Nordic animals.
