Sports and Recreation

Whether you played sports before studying abroad or you are ready to try bandy for the first time, playing sports is a great way to get involved in the local community, as the Swedes are highly interested in staying active.

Sports and recreation fit well into the Swedish lifestyle. In Sweden, the Right of Public Access, allemansrätten, allows everyone the freedom to roam through public lands, and walk, cycle, ride, camp, or ski as they wish. During wintertime, the Swedes take advantage of this, as the snowy scenery makes a list of icy activities possible – from downhill skiing and snowboarding, to cross country skiing, ice hockey, curling, and more.

While studying at DIS Stockholm, you will have the opportunity to meet the locals by signing up for various sports teams and fitness centers in Stockholm.
