Long distances? No problem!


Visitors often remark, “Sweden is certainly a big country!” But long distances are not a problem thanks to our excellent communications. There are ferries, trains and airplanes to take you to your fishing paradise. And roads – why not take your own car? The road network is well developed with high standard roads throughout the country. Take your time, look around and who knows what you’ll see – perhaps even a moose!

Many airlines have cut their prices and introduced new travel classes to meet the competition. Thus travelling to Sweden is not only easier, it’s less expensive, regardless of where in the world you start out. In co-operation with the Star Alliance, SAS Scandinavian Airlines links many parts of the world directly to Sweden and operates connecting flights to major cities in Sweden via Stockholm. In addition there are a number of low-fare airlines operating at alternative airports near the big cities, providing an interesting alternative for anglers searching for a budget alternative.

So getting here is not a problem either!
