Intro to sweden
Vikings, Castles, and Midsummer - enough said! Sweden is one of the best places in the world to experience wild nature filled with mountains, trees, lakes, and animals. In total, there are 29 national parks in this breathtaking country. You will never dehydrate because there is drinkable water almost everywhere. The tap water is delicious, but what’s even better is the water from the fjords and streams. After enjoying Fika in Stockholm with all of your friends, you just may catch a glimpse at a reindeer!
