The oldest and largest national parks in Sweden are to be found in Norrbotten county which is also known as Swedish Lapland. Eight of Sweden's twenty-six national parks are located here. With the exception of Muddus and the Haparanda archipelago, the national parks in the province are in the mountain region. Together they cover over 6000 km², which means that the national parks in Norrbotten count for 95% of the area dedicated to national parks in Sweden.

Every mans right "Allemansrätt"
The Swedish freedom to roam, or everyman's right is public's right to access certain public or privately owned land for recreation and exercise. The Swedish right to roam comes with an equal emphasis being placed upon the responsibility to look after the countryside; the maxim is "Do not disturb, do not destroy". The Allemansrätt gives a person the right to access, walk, cycle, ride, ski, and camp on any land - with the exception of private gardens, the immediate vicinity of a dwelling house and land under cultivation, and with restrictions for nature reserves and other protected areas. It also gives the right to pick wildflowers, mushrooms and berries provided one knows they are not legally protected
