The Scandinavian nation of Sweden is made of thousands of islands, inland lakes, forests and mountains. 97 % of this country, popularly known as the land of the Moose, still remains uninhabited, and Sweden is indeed a mecca for the intrepid traveller with unbounded wilderness, virgin forests, frozen wastelands, a wealth of flora and fauna, and of course the famous Viking lore. Sweden is also synonymous to impeccable style, with an all pervading aesthetic sense. Here you also find the Sami, who are the nomadic reindeer herders.
