We can’t help but agree with the following comment by Tareq Taylor, when visiting the area with his programme Nordic Cookery: “This region has sort of set a mark in me, it’s absolutely incredible in so many different ways. It’s where you enjoy yourself, it’s where you get good-quality food, and if it isn’t on your bucket list already, it should be. If you want to experience true essence of Swedish summer, this is where you go.” We’re actually a little envious now, thinking of all the fun you’re going to have! Good luck! Best wishes from the team on Bucket list We love it here – it’s as simple as that. The area offers magical nature experiences, fascinating history, vibrant small-town life and an abundance of wonderful visitor attractions. We challenge you to come and explore some of our personal favourites – how many can you fit in?
