The Major Mountains of Sweden.

This list ranks all The Major Mountains of Sweden in order of prominence.

There are 87 Major Mountains in Sweden, that is, mountains with at least 600 meter of prominence (having a primary factor of at least 600 meter.)
(There may be as many as 89 or as few as 86, see peaks marked with pm = "possible major" near the cutoff.)

Taken together with the 570 Major Mountains of Norway, this makes a grand total of 652 Major Mountains in Scandinavia. This number could be as low as 644 and as high as 679. (We count 5 peaks as shared between Norway and Sweden.)

For completeness, this list contains the 100 most prominent mountains in Sweden and a few more in order to list all mountains having a prominence of at least 500 meter.

Further information, in particular, documentation of the key saddle is available via the link to the mountain.

Confirmed or suspected corrections are most welcome by email to: petter@ii.uib.no

* There are two competing summits (each measured to 1914 m) for being number 8 (in Prominence) in Sweden.
The two summits are separated by a saddle between contours (1640-1660) at location N67:19.644 E17:57.387.
The lower of the two summits will have a prominence of 264 meter.
The location of Ruopsoktjåkkå is N67:19.848 E17:58.850.
Until the relative height is decided, a climber must visit both summits in order to claim this peak.

** We consider this peak to be on the border between Norway and Sweden.
It is also the highest point on the Norwegian-Swedish border.
There is a relatively flat summit plateau and the border crosses this, very close to the highest point.
