Freedom to roam - "Allemansrätten"

Sweden has a unique law giving people the freedom to roam, The Right of Public Access (“Allemansrätten”). This allows people to roam the countryside freely, and people can camp, hike, cycle, or even ski on someone else’s property.There are a few exceptions on what’s allowed, so be sure to familiarize yourself with the rules before venturing out. If you plan on going fishing, check to see if any fishing permit is required for the area.
