  • What is the lifestyle like in Sweden?

    Forests cover over 69% of Sweden, so most Swedes live active, outdoorsy lifestyles. Hiking, cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, and orienteering are popular outdoor sports in Sweden. Swedes also love their coffee. The fika, Swedish for “coffee break”, is an important part of Swedish culture. It is more than simply a coffee break but rather a social phenomenon where people set aside some time to enjoy genuine moments with their friends, colleagues, or family. The tradition is observed frequently, sometimes even several times a day as a way for people to bond with each other.
