The Ultimate Airbnb is an Entire Country – Welcome to Sweden!

Sweden is nothing if not an enterprising country that really gets social media and this whole internet thing. After all, it’s the nation that brought us the Curators of Sweden, a project which in part handed over the official Swedish Twitter account to a different citizen for a week. It was very cool for a few months, then suddenly, it wasn’t. link :

That’s not to say that the idea of the project wasn’t amazing; after all, Sweden is a beautiful and unique Scandinavian country with a fantastic culture. That’s why Sweden recently listed itself, the whole country, on Airbnb! They’re inviting the whole world to come to the nation and explore freely, an experience called “allemansrätten,” or “the freedom to roam.”

The listing reads, “Allemansrätten… is a principle protected by Swedish law that gives all people the right to be free in Swedish nature. In other words, Swedish nature isn’t just a piece of land with trees and lakes and cliffs – it’s a home with all the necessities and amenities that any great home should have.” Not the least of which is spectacular views, by the way. The photos on the listing are breathtakingly beautiful, and the listing provides info on nine separate regions of the country, to get your journey off the ground.

We’re already backing our bags, and the listing has only been up for a few days! But with promises of warm hospitality and boundless natural wonders, we’re kicking ourselves that we haven’t visited sooner! As the ad says, “It’s a place where you can eat berries from the ground, sleep under the stars, swim in the lakes and roam freely.” Count us in!
