Things to do in the mountains
An increasing number of people spend their holidays in the mountains. At the beginning of mountain tourism, it was hiking, sports fishing and traditional skiing that were the main activities. Today there are also many other activities that have been introduced in recent years and that are gaining a growing audience. Snowmobiling, mountain biking, kiting, paragliding, randonee skiing, caving, grouse-shooting or dog sledding are just a few of the “new” activities that more and more people are trying and becoming fans of.
A few days’ hiking in a magnificent free mountain landscape is among many people’s holiday favourites.
Fishing in the mountains is mainly administered by the county administrative boards of the mountain counties.
Downhill skiing in the mountains is by far the most popular activity in terms of the number of practitioners.
An increasing number of people choose to go alpine skitouring in the Swedish mountains.
Hunting in the mountains demands completely different preparations than the same hunting in forests.
