Sveg is situated 230 miles (370 kilometers) northwest of Stockholm, the national capital.
Do-it-yourself travelers will love leaving the tourist trail completely behind and heading to the other towns and cities in this fascinating region. You may also wish to check out Ytterhogdal, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the southwest, and Vemdalen 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the southeast.
This region is well known for its many traditional villages; these are often testaments to the area's colorful past.
Have a go at some of the region's most popular winter attractions. Join the locals and go snowboarding here. Cross-country skiing is also popular.
You'll be sure to endear yourself with the locals in Jamtland, by trying to speak Swedish. A great example of a handy Swedish sentence is "Vill du dansa med mig?" (Would you like to dance with me?). "Where are you from?" is another good one know, so practice saying "Varifrån kommer du?"
If you're traveling in Jamtland on the 6th of June, join the locals during the country-wide Swedish Flag Day celebrations.
When it's time to leave, say a fond Hej då (farewell) to the characters you have met and the landscapes you've seen.
