Although not easy, contrary to popular belief, metal detecting in Sweden is not illegal, provided that certain rules are being followed. Since the 1st of January 2014, a special licence is required to use metal detectors in Sweden and to bring them into areas where ancient monuments can be found. It is also not possible to obtain permission to use a metal detector in order to look for ancient artefacts. Permits are not given in or near an ancient monument or a place where unknown ancient monuments or artefacts are likely to be found. In general, the licence period should not exceed one year. As a matter of fact, these types of metal detecting permits tend to last for just 3 months.
