Fjärdhundraland is an area where you can experience rural Sweden within an hour of both Stockholm (the capital of Sweden), Uppsala (Sweden’s fourth largest city) and Västerås (fifth on the list). Against a backdrop of fields of crops and grazing cows and horses, recent years have seen an explosion of new cafés, craftsmanship and artisan food. Simply a convenient, friendly area for you as a visitor to Sweden to explore.
We want to meet you – you who are curious and want to see a more genuine part of Sweden. Local food, not mass market meatballs … Accessible real nature, neither a city park nor an ordeal in a remote wilderness. Here culture and history is shown it’s own landscape, not closed off in a museum. You buy your bread from the baker herself – and make a new friend.
The name Fjärdhundraland is derived from the medieval province of Fjädrundaland, the land of the four hundreds, a part of the province of Uppland in Sweden. When you visit you walk in the footsteps of vikings, medieval clergymen and many generations of farmers who have used the waterways for trade with the cities.
