To save you any searching we’ve found ten outstanding accounts, each providing a unique look at life in Sweden. Let us introduce you to ten of the best Instagrammers in Sweden, including a coffee connoisseur, a wilderness expert and an awesomely cute little reindeer.
In i Vildmarken
Peter Persson is the man behind the In i Vildmarken feed, which shows what being a wilderness adventurer is all about. This adventurous Swede used to wander the forests alone as a child.

Babes In Boyland
Nathalie Myrberg and Matilda Hildingsson are the creative duo behind Babes In Boyland, an Instagram account focused on styling, food, design and sustainability. Swiping through their stunning posts is like taking a step back in time, to a Sweden that once was. Their photos are always richly textured and atmospheric, even if it’s just a close-up of a waffle or a bowl of strawberries with milk. Each and every post is like a breath of fresh, Swedish air.
Off the grid in central Sweden
Mathias Smulter is the man behind Javrri, an Instagram account providing a captivating insight into a humble, off-the-grid lifestyle in central Sweden. Mathias lives in the forests of Jämtland with his partner Tova, their cat, a bunch of chickens and two dogs called Mysak and Malva. Yes, you’ll see a lot of the animals! Mathias photographs and videos everything, from the cat taking a ride in the firewood basket, to Tova watering vegetables. Need to get away from it all? Make a stop here.

Jonna’s creativity and way of approaching life will encourage you to let more magic into your world.
Food stylist, recipe developer & photographer
Sonja Dahlgren is the creative force driving Dagmar’s Kitchen, an Instagram account celebrating healthy food and good living. Each post is mouth-wateringly beautiful, be it a towering strawberry cake or a lunch of bread, butter and pickled herring. The name Dagmar’s Kitchen was inspired by her Danish great grandmother, who created an atmosphere of ‘hygge’ (or a special kind of cosiness) in her kitchen. That feeling is most definitely present in Sonja’s Instagram feed.
Marta Moosiatko Streng
Photographer & barista
Marta is a 30-year-old Polish photographer and barista based in Stockholm with an Instagram feed that reflects her bubbly personality. No matter what Marta is capturing, be it a cat or a steaming cup of coffee, she turns the ordinary into the extraordinary. Going through Marta’s Instagram posts is a bit like opening presents – it’s always exciting waiting for her next upload.
Bianca van Dam
Writer, designer & photographer
Bianca van Dam is a Dutch expat, writer, designer and photographer living in Stockholm, and her Instagram provides a sweet insight into her daily life. From beautifully hand-decorated pepparkakor (gingerbread biscuits) to shots of Midsummer celebrations, from photographing someone’s apartment to snapping a selfie with her cat, you see life as Bianca experiences it.
A Cup of Johan
Johan Damgaard is the cheerful chap behind A Cup of Johan, an Instagram account that expresses his love of coffee. He’s also the captain at Johan and Nyström, a well-known Swedish coffee roaster. Through his posts you’ll come to understand why coffee – and fika – is a Swedish state of mind. The mesmerising videos of coffee being prepared will have you reaching for the kettle. All in all, it’s an uplifting insight into a life that revolves around coffee.
Násti Heter Jag
Násti’s mother was killed by a bear, but this cute little reindeer was given a new chance at life with a family in northern Sweden. Násti (which means star in Sami) has unsurprisingly gathered a strong following on Instagram. There’s plenty of videos of him running and eating, plus photographs of him looking just magnificent in the Swedish north. If you’re anything like us, your time in Sweden will probably become dedicated to meeting Násti for yourself.
