National Geographic's Southern Sweden and Norway Adventure Map provides global travelers with the perfect combination of detail and perspective in a highly functional travel tool. The hundreds of points of interest that highlight the diverse and unique destinations within the countries such as World Heritage sites, museums, castles, archeological sites, churches, and more make this map invaluable to travelers hoping to experience all the history, art, and culture the region has to offer. National parks, winter sports resorts, and campsites are plentiful in both countries for those wishing to explore the picturesque mountains, extensive coastlines, fjords, and ancient forests. Cities and towns are easy to locate with the user-friendly index. Transportation aids include a clearly marked road network complete with distances and roadway designations, and the locations of airports, airfields, railroads, ferry routes, lighthouses, harbors, and international border checkpoints.
The northern half of the region is shown on the front side of the print map spanning from the counties of Nordland to Hordaland in Norway and Norbotten to Kopparberg in Sweden. The reverse side of the map covers the southern portion of Norway from Bergen south to include the cities of Stavanger, Oslo, and Kristiansand. It also shows the southernmost section of Sweden from the city of Malm on its border with Denmark north to Borl nge.
Though it is the third largest nation in the European Union, Sweden remains lightly populated, as does its neighbor Norway which is the second least densely populated country in Europe. Sweden's capital Stockholm is regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Despite its northern latitude, Sweden enjoys all four seasons, though the sun virtually never sets in the summer. Norway is a storied landscape of azure fjords, agate-colored mountains, and spectacular northern lights. Many of its remarkable wooden stave churches which date to the Middle Ages are still intact. Though once the home of the fierce Vikings, Norway is known today as one of the world's most welcoming places.
