Discover Forests

Sweden's forests, which stretch over 8 and a half million acres, constitute the largest massif in Europe. The forests in the north, which are mainly fir trees, also boast huge birch trees as tall as 2,625 ft high. In contrast, in the south and far south, you will find leafy forests (beeches, oaks and aspens).
