Arjeplog, Swedish Lapland

Swedish Lapland constitutes more than 25% of Sweden. Situated in the absolute north of the country, it treats you to mountains, forests, marshes, large rivers, archipelagos and sea and is one of only seven places in the world where you can experience the Arctic. The table is located at Skeppsholmen in the town Arjeplog only a few minutes’ walk from the town centre and over a small bridge close to Hornavan Hotel.

Besides The Edible Country experience, there is much to see and do in Swedish Lapland. With four national rivers, more than 30,000 lakes and a coastline of over 1,500 kilometres – Swedish Lapland has room for a few more fishermen. Of course, there is no forgetting the Midnight Sun or Northern Lights experiences here. You can see the Midnight Sun from May to July, and remember, the more north you go, the shorter the nights. When summer ceases and the darkness returns, the Northern Lights can be seen dancing in the skies. Many say that autumn is the very best season for spotting the auroras.

If hiking is your kind of hobby, then this is the place to do it. Hike over Sweden's highest mountaintops, to the cloudberry marshes or to one of many fishing places. King’s Trail, or Kungsleden, is Sweden’s longest and most famous trail and mostly frequented during summer.
