Norrland is one of three major regions in Sweden. Norrland encompasses two-thirds of the country's surface and about one-sixth of its population. Most of the major national parks in Sweden are located in the Northern parts of Norrland. The region is characterized by forests, mountains, rivers, mines, a harsh winter climate, long distances, left-wing attitudes, as well as university towns with young populations.
