Due to some strange annual ritual that the local population engages in, which involves fireworks, drinking and running up and down mountains, I shall be in the wilderness with little to no internet access for about three days starting tomorrow.
I believe the ritual is a celebration of finally drinking coffee instead of tea, which therefore requires drinking beer to celebrate. Logic.
(As an amusing piece of trivia, the fireworks are set off on the 3rd rather than the 4th, due to daylight).

I know right? Those damn Americans influencing me... although the best date format is still yyyy/mm/dd
Where I'm going isn't the wildest it gets (Seward & Denali, mostly). However, it's about as remote as it gets while still being accessible by car. For example, 5 km out of Seward and you pretty much have no cell signal. For Denali, there's one road and if you go a little off that road, there's no motorized vehicles allowed (incl. planes), so they have to use dog sleds to get their park rangers to move from place to place. It certainly feels like the wilderness, and a lot of amenities can be quite limited, but it's definitely possible to find the amenities if you look for them and don't venture too far out.
What's true for all of it is that there's always the risk of running into a moose or bear, but that's true even in Anchorage (comparable size to Malmø).
Compared to Sweden, I'd say where I'm going is about what you described. But it's possible to go deeper (and plenty of people do and then have to be rescued by helicopter because they're stupid and unprepared for what actual wilderness is, which is why I am not going there ).

From around the 30th of June to the 5th of July, I am going to be here (I think; it might be one of the others, either way though): www.google.com/maps/place/Wonder+Lake+Campgroundfirstname.lastname@example.org,-150.8708913,14.5z/data=!4m12!1m6!3m5!1s0x56cdf3ff88d01605:0xc6b53b15131936a5!2sDenali+National+Park+and+Preserve!8m2!3d63.1148002!4d-151.1926058!3m4!1s0x0:0x1c9e4ef7aac3b9c9!8m2!3d63.4533672!4d-150.862788
Accordingly, I will have no power and no cell service, and thus be unavailable during that time period.
