GREAT trip, and report, Dutch! It proves that the Hammocking community is worldwide, and that with an extended family this large, hotels are an afterthought. The scenery alone was worth the trip. Meeting some of our European brethren was special, and I hope they know that the same courtesy will be extended to them should they ever visit here!
Thanks for the great write-up, and pics, and thanks to our across-the-pond counterparts for hosting one of the HF icons!

Thanks for sharing your trip Dutch! I too was waiting for your report to see how it went.
Looks like you had great hospitality. Loved the pics. And the vid of the midges are something else! Glad you had good weather and met up with great people and some great characters!
I like a smudge of midge on my Pop-Tarts)))))
What a fine ol' time you had on your tour it sounds.
Now I have a craving for tubed caviar on flat tasteless bread. Thing we have some in the cooler.

I haved lived in Stockholm for a year now. I am from USA, Wyoming. I was really bummed that I couldn't make this trip. I was chasing salmon in the north.
I loved your description of the Swedish food! Everything comes in tubes. Did they make you try the one called fish paste? I won't try it.
Swedes and Scandi's in general are very nice people. They love their "nature" or what we call the outdoors.
Maybe I will make the next trip or one when I get home next summer. Angus
Awesome trip report sounds like an awesome time glad you enjoyed your adventures.
Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.
Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
