That is also the reason why Travel Gate Sweden will be a helpful coordinator to international travel agencies for culinary travels to south of Sweden. Get some tour ideas here. Food has always been an important part of daily life in Skåne. The many traditional inns, restaurants and farm shops that are dotted around the countryside bear witness to this characteristic.
