Understanding Scandinavia starts with the forest

 
More than half the Nordic lands lie beneath a dense canopy of trees and it is said that one can walk from Skåne, the southernmost county of Sweden, to Lapland, inside the Arctic Circle, without once leaving the forest. A journey of two thousand kilometers.

The vast majority of this woody landscape is boreal – evergreen forests of spruce, pine and fir. But further south these ancient trees mingle reluctantly with the deciduous beech and birch genus, often carving distinct lines in the soil as their silent sentinels face off toward one another. And, where their lines meet, different flora fills in the gaps.

This is one of the last remaining wildernesses of Europe and its dark, wooden halls are still populated by moose, bear, boar and wolves. Or, in its magical form, by trolls, elves and dwarves. Thus, to wander deep inside the forest is to experience a connection to nature so pure and raw that one’s senses are never more alive.

We invite you to experience these forests and the growing number of variants in our own SKOG family.
