Organizations such as the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) can be considered an authority on the subject of nature in Sweden, addressing such issues as climate change, the marine environment, and nature conservation. Valuable information is also available through the Swedish EPA on Sweden’s national parks, which were created to represent a breadth of environments within Sweden, but also offer ample opportunities to Swedes and visitors for recreation.
The right to access any publicly or privately owned land is protected by “allemansrätten”, the right of public entrance. This privilege is extended based on the premise of no destruction nor animal disturbance, as well as due respect paid to landowners. “Allemansrätten” provides for numerous opportunities for outdoor adventure, including the gathering of food, given adherence to the “do not disturb, do not destroy” principle.
