5 Swedish National Parks that I want to visit

5 Swedish National Parks that I want to visit

This was prompted by Paul Weimer’s guest post at Pornokitsch about US National Parks. 🙂 . There are 29 Swedish National Parks. So far, I have been to 4 of them. But I want to go to so many more.. Here are the current top 5, listed in decreasing likelihood of an actual visit. LOL! . Gotska Sandön: This is a largeish island located North of Gotland.

Utterly random update
