About this book

Language: English

Sweden's National Parks offers a kaleidoscopic journey through the Swedish landscape, with all its beauty and variation – from delicate wooded meadows and moss-carpeted ancient forests to desolate bogland and subarctic mountains.

Published by the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, its aim is to create a greater awareness of and feeling for the priceless natural heritage which the national parks of Sweden represent, and to encourage many people to visit them in a spirit of care and consideration. The book combines informative descriptions of the parks with images of their scenery and wildlife by leading nature photogrtaphers, while writers such as Kerstin Ekman, Gunnar Brusewitz, Gerda Antti and Stefan Edman add their personal impressions of selected areas. Among these contributions is one of the last nature essays written by the statesman and author Rolf Edberg.

“They are therefore important not only for nature conservation, but also for local interests and for tourists from Sweden and abroad,” writes the Director-General of the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency. “It is the hope of the Agency that many people will visit the national parks of Sweden and, while exercising care for their natural features, enjoy many fine experiences of nature.”

In his foreword, HM King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, who has officially opened many of the country’s national parks, writes: “Thanks to this form of protection, later generations will, I hope, also be able to enjoy our unique natural heritage. Beyond price, it belongs not only to us, but also to the future.”
