Embrace friluftsliv: Sweden’s outdoor lifestyle

We're absolutely passionate about it: friluftsliv. But what exactly is friluftsliv, you might ask? Essentially, it's a way of life—a philosophy that encourages individuals to seek solace, adventure, and fulfillment in the nature. 

By connecting with nature, you calm your mind and become a happier person, regardless the season and the weather. Whether it's trekking through lush forests, camping under the stars, or paddling along serene lakes, friluftsliv offers endless opportunities in Sweden.

Want to prepare for your vacation and incorporate the Swedish mindset already? 

Here's how:
- Start your day by enjoying your coffee or tea outdoors. Take a moment to breathe in the fresh air and appreciate the tranquility of nature. This simple practice sets a peaceful tone for the day ahead.

- Make it a habit to take short walks in nature every day, regardless of the weather. Remember the Swedish saying, Det finns inget dåligt väder, bara dåliga kläder: There's no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes.
Bundle up and explore the beauty of your surroundings, whether it's a nearby park or a forest trail.

- Embrace the spirit of friluftsliv by engaging in outdoor activities such as cycling, birdwatching, running or fishing.

- Create a green oasis on your balcony or in your backyard by adding more plants, setting up a comfortable seating area to enjoy the sun, install a fire pit for cozy evenings under the stars or maybe add a hammock for afternoon naps outside.
