Swedish Lapland



Lapland is a vast region of northern Scandinavia which crosses the borders of Norway, Sweden and Finland, as well as Russia, and is home to the historically nomadic Sami people, who have lived here for millennia in close harmony with the seasons – of which there are eight in the indigenous tradition. To visitors, whatever season you visit in this Arctic landscape is a dramatic and spectacular experience, and one of Europe’s last true wildernesses, with vast forests, fast flowing rivers, mountains, lakes and marshes. In summer wildlife abounds in the long days, with the Midnight Sun visible from May to July, whilst in winter the landscape is cloaked in snow and it becomes one of the world’s best places from which to witness the Northern Lights. To explore the north of Sweden, you will travel to the city of Lulea, or Kiruna, perhaps via a stopover in Stockholm, and then continue to one of the unique hotels in the Lapland wilderness – from the world-famous Ice Hotel, constructed from blocks of pure river ice, to the serenely beautiful Arctic Bath Hotel, and the quirky and endlessly photogenic Tree Hotel.
