Sweden – Lapland And The Northern Lights

  • Lapland5 days
About

Take a journey into the far northwest corner of Sweden in to Arctic plains, forests, mountains, glaciers, lakes and rivers. It’s remote, it’s wild, it’s a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and adventure seekers, and, even better, the magnetic winter skies blaze with Northern Lights from September to March with extraordinary beauty – a phenomenon not to be missed.

Surreal landscapes, indigenous cultures, aurora night shows An unforgettable Lapland adventure Jump on board a snow-mobile, take a reindeer-sled ride, enjoy the frozen beauty of the IceHotel & climb Sweden’s highest mountain – the dazzling Northern Lights await you.

You should experience it because...

The Northern Lights are one of the most unforgettable experiences. See them on a horse and sleigh ride through wild arctic landscapes, whiz along on a snow-mobile, take an overnight Aurora tour, or a dog sled evening ride. And the frozen beauty of the Ice Hotel is a must.

Climb Kebnekaise, Sweden’s highest mountain

See beautiful and elaborate snow-sculptures at the Kiruna Snow Festival during the last week of January.

Visit the oldest church in Lapland, the Jukkasjarvi Church, built of wood, and while you’re there, sip on a cocktail at the Ice Bar from a glass made of ice.

The ideal time to visit Sweden is in summer from June to August . At this time you will find most attractions including cafes and open air museums open while many flock to the north of Sweden to experience the midnight sun . In summer, the sun never fully sets in northern Sweden; even in the south, daylight can last until 11pm, and then the sun rises around 3am

The months of spring and autumn, May through June and the month of September, are almost prettier than the Swedish summers. When spring comes to the Swedish countryside, wildflowers burst into bloom after a long dark winter.

Winter is off season . However one of the most fascinating things you can experience in Sweden is to see the shimmering northern lights, and they can be viewed only in the winter.
