Great views! But I'm just wondering, Sweden being third largest country in Western Europe, I can't see a single person in the photos displayed.

That's how it is in the wilderness of Sweden. Sweden is a sparsely populated country since we're only about 9 million inhabitants. There are places in the north where you'll be the only person in hundred of kilometers. Most people live in the southern parts of Sweden, so at least there you'll see some people around.
