Full-colour maps and plans enable you to explore the country in depth, scenic routes and thematic tours will ensure you won’t miss a thing, while features on aspects of Sweden’s culture explain its folklore and traditions. Illustrated food features highlight regional specialities and you’ll find an impressive selection of restaurants and hotels. Equipped with over 900 sumptuous photographs, take a tour of the waterways, sample the delights of the smorgasbord, or swim in lakes and rivers – this guide will lead the way.
