For more "impact" in the colour film world try Velvia slide film.

In soft light particularly, Velvia gives wonderful saturated color. It can look a bit garish in full bright sun, however. It was popular enough during the last years of film that some digital cameras have a "Velvia simulation" option in the menu.

Hm, cool. No idea if color reversal film is allowed, but I'll consider it!

Oh, and here's the selection of films one of the local shops have in stock. Fairly expensive place, but they've got a lot to choose from =) Link to the store

In the heyday of film, slide film ruled the world. (Colour negative was considered amateur film by many)

You had two major slide shooting camps, Kodachrome and Velvia. Each slide film having a unique colour quality.

Kodachrome is long gone, but you can still shoot Velvia in 50 or 100 IOS, although it's a slightly different emulsion that the 1990's version.

Phil,

Yep they have it:

Diafilm Fujifilm Velvia 50 135/36 - Köp den hos Brunos Bildverkstad AB

You could also try Kodak E100G it's also great, thought it's discontinued:

Kodak Ektachrome E100G135-36 - Köp den hos Brunos Bildverkstad AB:

Have we recommenders neglected to put forward any currently available B&W as yet? I still vote for Tri-X, but I suspect that several of the films named will serve equally well. ISO/ASA of 400 seems to dominate the preferred films.
Delta 3200 is still available. It's on Ilford's site

Hm, well darn. As it turns out they've actually got a list of films allowed XD

Color:
Kodak Portra 160, 36 exposures
Kodak Portra 400, 36 exposures

Black & White:
Ilford Delta 100, 36 exposures
Kodak Tri-X 400, 36 exposures
Ilford Delta 3200, 36 exposures
Fuji Neopan 400, 36 exposures

So I'm reckoning I'll go either Portra 160 or Tri-X 400. Great tips though, everyone! I'll be sure to try them out.

Being in Sweden, low light, long shadows, I would suggest Neopan 400.
