Reader photo of the week: On the way to the Swedish sauna
Photo: Nicole Pieren Broekema

In a new series on The Local, we're inviting readers to submit photos each week to bring our audience together from all parts of Sweden.


Every week, we will select a winner.

This week's winner is Nicole Pieren Broekema, who snapped this snowy picture on the way to the sauna at Glamping Höga Kusten, the ecofarm she and her partner run on the High Coast of Sweden, one of the country's most gorgeous locations.

"Seven years ago we moved from the Netherlands to Höga Kusten in the middle of Sweden, to live our dream life, a small red house in the countryside," she told The Local. "Our guests come from all over the world. We have three glamping places in the summer and two in the winter with a lot of privacy. In the picture you see the way to the sauna – we built it in the middle of the forest."

You can submit your entries via email at [email protected] with the subject "Photo of the week", or by submitting your photo to X using the hashtag #TheLocalSwedenPOTW – or look out for our Facebook post every Monday on The Local Sweden where you can submit your photo. Please tell us your name so we can credit you as the photographer, and tell us a little bit about the photo and where it was taken.


By submitting a photo, you're giving us permission to republish it on The Local's website, our social media and newsletters.
