I'm going to visit Sweden in two weeks, landing in Arlanda (Stockholm). I'm renting a car and was thinking of spending the first weekend driving around and seeing its natural beauty. I have lived there for a year, though in the South of the country, and I have also visited all big cities such as Stockholm, Malmo and Gothenburg. For this reason, and since I like driving, I thought of checking upon some natural sites - and the North or mountains would be my preference. I understand that November is not the best month to visit: it's already cold, so the green is gone, but there won't be much snow yet. I had the following things in mind:
I was suggested to visit Mora, but I guess that would make sense in Summer, and mountains for sure are not visible from there.
Another suggestion was to go to Kebnekaise, and I think that would be the thing I'd love to see indeed, but that's 12 hours drive one way.
I was thinking of going to Oslo, I have a friend living there, so I could drive for 7 hours to get there, stay there for two nights and spend one day driving around Oslo, perhaps there are some beautiful spots over there. I have not been to Norway.
Do you have better suggestions? I do not want to drive more than 7 hours a day, and I'd be interested in seeing some mountains/forests kind of nature. Fwiw, I'm renting a Volvo S90, so I think I'll have to stick to good roads.
