Sweden: Disabled Needs
More than just flatpack furniture!
In comparison to many countries around the world, Sweden is great destination for disabled travelers, in terms of hotels and public transport systems. Many hotels provide rooms which have been specially adapted for disabled travelers, specifically for people with mobility problems, or suffering from allergies, and some also enable those with limited mobility to take part in activities like swimming and riding. In terms of public transport, staff are usually on hand to help disabled travelers to board and disembark – if notified in advance, and Swedish Railways’ trains have special lifts and seats for passengers using wheelchairs.
