Regions in Sweden

Here you will find regions and provinces in Sweden. From Skåne in the South to Lapland in the North – including the popular tourist destinations Småland, Bohuslän, Värmland and Dalarna. All in all, Sweden has 25 historical provinces. They are called landskap in Swedish. To simplify matters, we just call them “regions” here on our site. (We haven’t covered all 25 yet.)
