THE RIGHT OF PUBLIC ACCESS
In Sweden, everyone has the right to be out in the countryside regardless of ownership. At the same time, the right of public access requires consideration, responsibility and good judgement. You may pick flowers (the ones that don´t have protective status), wild berries, and mushrooms. You may camp for 24 hours without asking the landowner. However, you must not litter, trespass too close to private houses, damage plants or hurt animals. Nature reserves have additional special rules, wich are posted on information signs in the area.
The essence of the right of public access concisely expressed by the phrase: ”Do not disturb, and do not destroy”!
