Hiking and backpacking in Sweden

Travel Forums Europe Hiking and backpacking in Sweden

Please, does anyone know anything about how is it to go to Sweden with hiking and backpacking purposes. I mostly mean:
1. Where can I pitch my tent? Are there any special places or I can do it anywhere in the wilderness?
2. Is there any fee for visiting National Parks such as Sarek?
3. As soon as it is not possible to take gas canisters to the plane, where can I buy it?
4. Where can I find a 1:200 map of Sweden? Or at least 1:50000...
5. Are there any other difficulties I should know about?

I really appreciate any help!

I also would like to invite Swedes to visit Ukraine, especially Crimea by joining our little group of two in August 2007. Why Swedes? Because we are learning Swedish and would like to have some practice!;)
