Swedish law prohibits motor vehicles from travelling on public land in a natural environment. This means wild/free camping in a motorhome is generally prohibited.
The country has over 400 campsites. They start at around 191 Swedish Krona per night.
Sweden also has numerous rest stops which may allow you to stay for a night. Check the signposts or visit an information centre for regulations regarding a specific area.
All drivers must have a current and full driver’s licence to hire a vehicle. If your licence is from the UK, it must entitle you to drive a category B vehicle up to 3,500 kg. For certain larger models, a category C licence is required.
Foreign licences are acceptable if they are in English or are written with Latin characters. However, if your licence is issued outside the EU, an International Driving Permit (IDP) is also recommended.
