Northern Europe’s untamed and unique land – the great home of the Sami, charismatic wildlife species and natural treasures.
In ‘The Land of Ice and Snow” Europe’s New Wild takes us to Swedish Lapland, one of Northern Europe’s wildest landscapes. It is a unique blend of wild nature and cultural heritage. Here old-growth forests, mountains, glaciers, free-flowing rivers and extensive wetlands co-exist with the indigenous Sami community since millennia.
There is no other place in continental Europe with such vast, uninhabited, road-less and wild landscapes as Swedish Lapland. But this seemingly untouched wilderness faces threats – rivers have been dammed, old-growth forest logged and peatlands drained.
Rewilding Sweden is on a mission to protect and restore these lost habitats. Seeking collaboration to make sure both people and nature are benefitting sustainably from wildlife comeback.
