Sweden is a land of contrasts. Dark winter days and light summer nights. Fields of golden grain in the south and snow-capped mountains in the north. Fresh air and pure water wherever you are. Here too is unspoiled nature, with endless forests and countless lakes. But Sweden is also a high-tech nation, with modern architecture and cities that throb to the pulse of modern lifestyles.
Unique for Sweden is the right of public access that grants every resident and visitor the freedom to explore the countryside. This means that Sweden can offer fantastic natural experiences as a framework for your meeting. In winter there is skiing, snowmobiles and dog-sledding. During the rest of the year Sweden is an ideal venue for hikes, sailing, whitewater rafting, or even mountainbike rallies. Around midsummer the sun shines 24 hours a day in the far north and you can go slalom skiing in the middle of the night. Beaver safaris, elk hunts and reindeer herding are other exotic experiences awaiting you in the Swedish wilderness.
