A Guide to Foraging in Stockholm

In Sweden, the ability to forage for food is practically enshrined in law under allemansrätten, the Swedes' unique right of public access. Here's how visitors to Stockholm can experience Swedish foraging culture for themselves.

Imagine it: You’re out in the woods; it’s quiet and peaceful. Moss softens your footsteps and a quaint wicker basket hangs from your elbow. You’ve found a beautiful patch of whatever you were looking for—maybe it’s blueberries, mushrooms, or even the coveted cloudberry, and you’re free to take it home with you. 
 

Foraging is a regular part of life for many Swedes, even those in urban centers. This connection with nature is such an integral part of the Swedish identity that it is enshrined into law: Allemansrätten, which translates to “every man’s right” and essentially means the freedom to roam, allows residents to hike, camp, and even forage food almost anywhere in the country. Visitors are free to participate in this practice as well, as long as they maintain Swedish foraging etiquette. Not to worry if you don’t fancy a solo walk through the woods in the hope of finding a troop of mushrooms or a berry patch—there are plenty of ways to experience the amazing food and biodiversity of Stockholm, even if you don’t want to head out into the woods yourself.
