Norrland, the northern half of Sweden, is remote enough that travellers here aren t likely to see the tour-bus crowd or, for that matter, much of anyone else. Norrland is one of three lands of Sweden besides Svealand and Götaland. It encompasses two-thirds of the country's surface, but no more than 12 per cent of its population; currently about 1.15 million. The region is characterized by forests, mountains, rivers, mines, a harsh winter climate, long distances, as well as university towns with young populations. This book offers information on Norrland and its most notable places.
