Extend that from Scandinavia to almost the entire world outside places like miltary bases and the like. The above is actually true for almost the entire world. Almost no one in the world gives a second thought for someone wanted to cross a cow pasture or something to climb a mountain. The US is one of the only places in the world I'm aware of that has the opposing attitude.
In most countries, crossing private land and things like pastures and trails through croplands and farms to climb mountains is just a way of life without a second thought given.
Other countries don't have the liability issues thanks to a sue-crazy country like we have in the US.
