We know about apartments, dorms and even couch surfing options put up on Airbnb. But now there is a whole country being listed there. Yes, you heard us right. Sweden is up for grabs!
This collaboration between Airbnb and Visit Sweden came into being with an aim to endorse the country's "freedom to roam" principle, or "allemansrätten”. It intends to give out the message that tourists have the right to explore all public spaces across the country for free.
According to the Swedish law, people who travel to Sweden, don't have to book an accommodation. They can put up a tent anywhere on a publicly owned land and spend the night. The listing reads, “It’s a home with all the necessities and amenities that any great home should have. It’s a place where you can eat berries from the ground, sleep under the stars, swim in the lakes and roam freely."
The website also recommends some specific locations such as Rustic Forest Retreat in Vintage Style, which is situated in a "historic and mysterious forest in western Värmland" . The list also includes that Sweden is available all throughout the year, accommodates everyone, has unlimited beds and has the luxury of checking in anytime.
