Thanks for sharing the pictures -- it looks lovely (at least, in the summer), prettier than I expected from the novels.


It was beautiful, but also easy to understand that in winter it could be very bleak.

My photography isn't good enough to capture the atmosphere but it wasn't hard to feel how the mythology of a not-too-distant past could still bear heavily.

Although I know Sweden well it was still a little surprising to cycle ten miles into dense woodland - the Troll Forest, huge mushrooms, home to Europe's largest insect (a stag beetle) - and still meet an old lady on her bike, laden with bags, going about her business.

Camels? I wasn´t too surprised by the other pictures, but I hadn´t seen that herd coming.
