Sweden’s nature calls to me and it’s seen as one of the most beautiful in the world. From the lush forests to the stunning coastlines, the people boast about an impressive array of natural beauty in Sweden that is truly awe-inspiring. If you’re a nature lover like me, Sweden is definitely the place to be. I mean, that’s a huge reason why I moved here (besides having a Swedish hubby).

One of the most popular attractions in Sweden is its flowers. The country is home to a variety of beautiful plants that are sure to delight nature enthusiasts. Some of the most popular plants to see in Sweden include wildflowers such as lupines, orchids, and buttercups. The country is also home to many different species of trees, including pine, oak, and birch.

The Best National Parks for Sweden’s Nature

One of the best places to experience Sweden’s natural beauty is at one of its many national parks. Sarek National Park is a popular choice, known for its stunning mountain ranges, glaciers, and vast forests. The park is also home to a wide variety of wildlife, including bears, wolves, and lynx. Another popular national park is Abisko National Park. This is famous for its northern lights displays and hiking trails that offer breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape.

Gothenburg Botanical Garden

Sweden is also home to several botanical gardens, which are perfect for those who want to experience nature up close. One of the most famous is the Gothenburg Botanical Garden, which has over 16,000 different species of plants. Visitors can explore the garden’s many exhibits, which include a tropical greenhouse, a Japanese Glade, and an herb garden (my favorite). Once you walk through the entrance, it feels as though you’ve been transported into another nature filled world!

Where Can this Sweden Nature be Found?

The Gothenburg Botanical Garden is one of the largest and most diverse botanical gardens in Europe, attracting visitors from all over the world. Located in the heart of Gothenburg, Sweden, the garden spans an impressive 175 hectares and is home to a wide variety of plant species, as well as several greenhouses and outdoor exhibits.

The garden was opened to the public in 1919 and has since been a hub for botanical research and education. Visitors can explore the Rock Garden, the Japanese Glade, the Rhododendron Valley, the Herb Garden, and much more.

Admission Price

The Gothenburg Botanical Garden is open year-round and admission is free. Visitors can take guided tours or explore on their own. The garden is family-friendly, with plenty of open spaces for children to run and play. There is also a café on site, as well as several picnic areas.For those interested in learning more about the garden, you can learn more about it at my article, Gothenburg Botanical Garden- Top European Garden.

As I ventured through this garden with my dog and mom in tow, I was blown away by its beauty! I was especially thrilled with the herb garden. Each herb had a little note with it explaining its use and medical qualities. Once we dined at the café and was surrounded by bushes, it felt like we were away from people and in a tucked away hidden gem. Since this place is so big, it adds to the beauty and lets you have a place away from the bustling people.

Bergius Botanical Garden

Another botanical garden worth visiting is the Bergius Botanical Garden in Stockholm. This garden is known for its collection of orchids and other bizarre plants in a variety of gardens within. Besides having loads of plant life, the garden is also home to a beautiful conservatory that is open year-round.

Bergius Botanical Garden is one of the most popular botanical gardens in Sweden, attracting visitors from all over the world. Located in the heart of Stockholm, this beautiful garden is home to a wide variety of plant species that are native to different parts of the world. If you’re a nature lover like me or just looking for a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city, Bergius Botanical Garden is the perfect place to visit. Stop by and relax in the café or take a stroll among the spectacular plant life.

Where Can this Sweden Nature be Located?

The garden is located in Haga in Stockholm and can be easily reached by public transportation or car. The outside the garden is open  24 hours daily. The Edvard Anderson Conservatory and the Victoria’s House are open from 11-16 on weekdays and 11-17 on weekends (this doesn’t include holidays and certain seasons).

One of the highlights of Bergius Botanical Garden is its beautiful greenhouse, which houses a wide variety of peculiar plants from all over the world. The greenhouse is divided into different rooms, each of which showcases plants from a different region of the world.

In addition to the greenhouse, the garden also features several outdoor gardens that showcase different types of plants, including medicinal plants, herb gardens, and rock gardens. The outdoor gardens are designed to be both beautiful and educational, and visitors can learn about the different plants and their uses. Which I really enjoy about visiting Botanical gardens in Sweden!

Visit in Full Bloom!

The best time to visit Bergius Botanical Garden is during the spring and summer months when the garden is in full bloom. During these months, the Sweden’s nature is a riot of color, with flowers and plants in full bloom. If you’re interested in seeing a particular type of plant or flower, be sure to check the garden’s website to see when it will be in bloom. Plus, the website will show you of special events and activities happening there as well.

When to Visit for Sweden’s Nature

The best time to visit the Sweden nature is during the summer months, from May to September. During this time, the weather is warm and sunny, and the countryside is filled with wildflowers and a lush green foliage. It’s also the perfect time for hiking, cycling, and exploring Sweden’s many natural wonders. Plus, Summer solstice is in June, where the sun is up for nearly most of the day!

This of course depends where in Sweden you are. So, the further north you go, the more sun! The first time I came to Sweden, my hubby brought me during the summer solstice. It was sort of a trick, since I saw the wonderful sun cascading down while life was everywhere.

He never mentioned to me the dark dreary winters! When the winter solstice happens, it’s the complete opposite of the summer solstice. So, as you can see from my writing, wintertime is not my favorite! I like the sun’s rays too much to have the months of darkness.

A Must-See: Sweden’s Nature!

In conclusion, Sweden’s natural beauty is truly a sight to behold. From its stunning national parks to its beautiful botanical gardens, there’s no shortage of places to explore. I highly recommend visiting if you’re a fellow nature lover. So, don’t hesitate! Book a ticket to Sweden now!

About Me

Misfit Wanders

Misfit Wanders

I´m a kooky girl that likes to travel. I grew up in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA. Then moved to Northern California for about 5 years. But now, it's going on 5 years living in Sweden with my hubby and our furbabies, plus our little boy and my mom has joined our crew! Over the pandemic time, it has been hard to travel. Thus, my travel blog had been at a stand still. I started going to a University and I had a baby. Now I'm on a different kind of adventure. But my family and I plan on traveling when we can still. Traveling is something I cherish. New adventures is what keeps me moving, that and a stubbornness. I have a weird sense of humor if you haven´t figured that out from my posts. My writing can be perplexing, but I like to tell stories, and the best way is from my own experiences. So sit back and relax, as you take a spin through my hikes or enjoy following my footsteps as I wander in different countries! Most of my writings will be focused on hikes and the outdoors in Sweden.
