Sweden have 25 National Park. So far me and my wife have visited:

Abisko,  Färnebofjärden , Garphyttan, Gotska Sandön, Hamra, Padjelanta, Tiveden, Tyresta, SarekStora Sjöfallet, , Ängsö.

Abisko, Sarek and Padjelanta together with five other nature reserves makes Laponia, a UNESCO World Heritage.  A huge recreation area as well as a sheltered place for many unique species of fauna and flora.

Most of the Sami people also use this area as feeding ground for their reindeers.
