Allt för Sverige (literally Everything for Sweden, marketed in the United States as The Great Swedish Adventure) is a Swedish reality show based on the original Norwegian format The Great Norway Adventure, also called Alt for Norge. The first season of Allt för Sverige was shown on Sveriges Television SVT1 from 30 October 2011 to 18 December 2011. The series is about Swedish Americans who return to their Swedish roots. In the program, they give the participants more information about their families but in each episode one in the group must leave the show and therefore find out less about their ancestry.

The host of the program is Anders Lundin.
