But it's not only the natural environment that is worth a visit in this area, the authentic villages and large cities in southern Sweden are also a must-see.

A holiday home in southern Sweden; a bit out of the ordinary

Experience peace and quiet but also hustle and bustle from your holiday home in southern Sweden; two extremes offered by this region.

Go shopping for an afternoon and browse Stockholm's long shopping streets, visit Glassworks in Glasriket, feel like a real knight in the preserved medieval castle of Glimmingehus or spot musk oxen in the Härjedalen Valley.
