as other Bernds also noted Sweden is a highly attractive place to go to.
I'm planning to go camping at the beginning of August. We are going to be 8 people in two cars.
The idea is to go to some lakes and forests to run around like Ronja Rövardotter did. We don't want to spend ages in the car, so we will stay in southern Sweden.
What are nice places to go to?
What should be avoided?
Camping in the wild will be difficult if you travel by car. Cars only go where roads are. Roads are usually near settlements. You can't camp there.
If you hike through the wilderness then it's easier to put up a tent.
Check out allemansrätten so you know your rights, they concern foreigners dwelling there too.
I don't live in Sweden but I know it's full of small dirt roads that curls around the forests and swamps, so I doubt >>2577 this will be a problem, but then again southern Sweden is pretty packed up, in the north it will be exponentially less likely that you will disturb anyones peace, more nature and less people.
You might already find some semilanceate in early August too, it makes running naked in forests and lakes lot funnier.
Also, expect shitloads of mosquitoes instantly when you take on step out from a city
I just returned from my trip and have to say it has been a great success.

It turns out it's not that hard. Allemannsrätten ftw!
It took us less than an hour to find a suitable camp site most of the time. Driving small country roads into the forest or to a lake was often successful. If there were houses nearby, we asked for permission. This was usually granted.
We had wonderful campsite at lakes and in forests.
Our day was usually as follows: sleep in and have breakfast at 11. Have a bath in the lake. Pack up the camp and drive for one to two hours. Visit cities or interesting sites ⌘ we pass (old churches, runestones, castles, national parks etc). Then find a camp site. Cook, eat, swim, play, drink, read, sleep. Repeat. We only stayed at the same place for two nights twice.
We found magic mushrooms, but not enough for more than one person. So there were no trips during the trip.
It's great to bring bottles of vodka to Sweden. We were able to rent kayaks a lot cheaper that way once.
That sounds awesome, OP.
Did you rent the cars or did you bring them from germany? Finlandbernd mentioned mosquitoes, were they a problem?

We rented the cars in Germany. It turned out to be cheaper. Because a car filled with four people and lots of stuff is pretty economical. We payed around 480 € per car for
They were annoying, but I've experienced worse. We had enough repellent (Anti-Brumm) with us to not be eaten alive. Ticks were a problem too. Almost all of us had one or two ticks over the course of the trip. We were prepared and brought the right tools to remove them with us.

What is the problem?
