Description: Roadtrip to Southern Lapland

E45, the road to mountain areas and great outdoor

The land of the Fjäll mountains

This text features a roadtrip along and with detours off  E45 to the Swedish mountain regions. In initial text, from the Swedish South to Härjedalen south,  I covered some of the sites and stops on the E45. In continuation,  the focus is on the mountain areas in Härjedalen and Jämtland as well as the South Lapland region. The last text will feature the northern Lapland.

This is as great part of Sweden if you are in to outdoors and nature. In addition, you can learn  about the local sami cultural and history.

You are reaching the southern part of the Swedish north and the distance is longer and the wilderness always present. As you get further and further north  you will need  time to roam the north of Sweden. It is not densely populated and thus, there are fewer shops and restaurants. So planning is crucial.

Nevertheless in a motorhome you travel with your own accommodation and cooking facilities.

Roadtrip E45 Sweden to southern Lapland

Day 15-18 From Lillhärdal in Härjedalen through the world of the Swedish “Fjäll” ( Swedish mountains)

The Swedish mountain region of (fjällen) is the region where I went skiing with my family as a kid. We always went wintertime. However, since then I have re-visited this region as an young adult ( many years ago) to do “fjällvandring” or hike in the mountains. Walking for days and carrying your food , often dried food to make the backpack lighther, with you was a fantastic experience. T

he backpack got ligher by the day. It was living of the grit and back then we were very careful not to litter and respect nature. I am reading that it is not the case any longer as many leave behind broken tents, food cans etc. This makes me very sad and angry at the same time.

Anyway back to the fantastic nature and cultural sites you can visit in the world of the Fjäll (mountains).
