Sweden – a destination
of a different nature

Sweden has four distinct seasons. Many prefer winter both for its serenity and the activities it allows for, such as alpine skiing. Sweden has over 1,600 slopes all over the country and in the Skellfteå area, there are four larger facilities for alpine sports and several smaller slopes.
