Northern Sweden

Northern Sweden and Swedish Lapland are unique. There is nowhere else in the world where you can visit the ICEHOTEL and Treehotel. Or sit around the campfire with a Sami guide, sharing stories of the day’s dog sledding adventure.

Northern Lights and Midnight Sun

The Aurora Sky Station in the Abisko National Park is purpose-built for viewing the greatest light show on Earth – the Northern Lights. And because of its practically permanent cloud-free skies there’s no better place to see them. In the height of summer, it’s non-stop daylight here. Ski all the way into summer at the exotically remote Riksgränsen. Cool places to see the Northern Lights

Northern lights are dancing above Lapporten mountains in Abisko. By Torne lake, a pitched tent is lit from inside.

Hiking and skiing

In summertime go fly-fishing for salmon and arctic char, or lace up your hiking boots and tackle the world-famous  King's Trail (Kungsleden).

For unique flora and fauna head for the Jämtland Härjedalen region. In addition to the clean air, it is well known for its accessible wilderness, superb homemade foods and its five clearly defined seasons.

Northern Lights - The greatest light show on earth

Even though we know why the Northern Lights appear, they are no less magical or mystical for it.
