Photos from Sweden (Norrland)

The North of Sweden, called Norrland is is known for its unspoiled nature: wide forests, untouched wilderness, impressive waterfalls and rivers. The Finnish and Sami minorities (whose language belongs to the Uralic family) live in the northern parts of Norrland and have maintained their culture and customs.
