You Know What? Sweden Lists Entire Country On Airbnb!
If Sweden has been on your travel plans for a long time, here is some hot news which you probably would not like to miss out on. The famous accommodation website AirBnb has listed Sweden on it’s website for FREE! Book a Scandinavian Tour Package so that you don’t have to face the minor hassles and confusions while you are on your trip, appreciating the beauty that Sweden is!
The free listing has come as a nod to Sweden’s long time law of “Right to roam” which gives any tourist the freedom to experience the Swedish nature without having to book an accommodation to visit the country or go to places you have always dreamed of.
In much simpler words, you can pitch your tent in any of the publicly owned land as long as you follow the decorum and discipline of not harming the nature and preserving the environment that is around you.
