The Swedish travel blog FREEDOMtravel was started in 2009 by us, Peter och Helena Bergström. Here you find inspiration about destinations in Sweden, Europe and worldwide, and we also update with a new blogpost every day at 6 am. Follow us to hectic cities, exotic beaches and pittoresque places just around the corner. We are always about to find new adventures, inform about travel and camping news and report from the life on a houseboat.
Travel, adventure and camping
We write about small and big trips by camper, car, air, train and ship.
- Travel – We travel both nearby and far away and enjoy luxury as well as simple life. Our articles are about destinations, sights, restaurants, culture and nature.
- Adventure – We like to visit unexpected destinations and the adventure might be about cultural meetings as well as backpacking, wildlife or white water rafting.
- Camping – We write about our own camper trips, both in Sweden and abroad. Sometimes we also write articles about camping with caravan or tent.
