Visit Sweden Lists the Entire Country on Airbnb



Forsman & Bodenfors welcomes everyone to Sweden to exercise their freedom to roam

Visit Sweden Lists the Entire Country on Airbnb

Visit Sweden, Sweden’s official tourism board, has partnered with Airbnb and Forsman & Bodenfors to turn the entire country into an Airbnb listing. And the best part is - you don’t have to officially book accommodation because all publicly owned land is entirely free and accessible to everyone.

Every lake is your infinity pool, every mountaintop your granite terrace, every meadow becomes a garden and every forest a pantry filled with mushrooms and berries. Feel free to take a morning jog or a bike ride across open fields or challenging mountain terrain starting right where you stand. Should you want an upgrade, you do not need to ask anyone, just find the places and the surroundings that suit you.

“This is made possible thanks to a Swedish right guaranteed by the constitution - freedom to roam. This right enables the Swedish people to experience nature and enjoy the beautiful Swedish wildlife. In Sweden we have everything from high mountains to deep forests, from beautiful archipelagos to quiet meadows. Now, together with Airbnb, we welcome everyone to come to Sweden and, through freedom to roam, share our wonderful nature,” says Jenny Kaiser, USA Country Manager at Visit Sweden.

Freedom to roam allows everyone and anyone to be free amidst Swedish nature with the right to access, walk, cycle or camp on any land, with private gardens and lands under cultivation being the only exception. The idea of free nature accessible to anyone is in the DNA of every Swede, but with great freedom comes responsibility. The general rule for spending time in nature is “do not disturb, do not destroy” – just like in any other home.

“We are very excited to welcome Sweden on Airbnb, for everyone to explore. This partnership is a first of its kind collaboration between a tourism board and Airbnb. It is designed to promote Sweden as a destination through the power of the Airbnb community. We see Visit Sweden as our long term partner and are happy to join forces in promoting Sweden as a destination”, says James McClure, General Manager Northern Europe at Airbnb.
