Discover Northern Sweden’s magnificent nature.


Northern Sweden and the legendary Swedish Lapland are unique. There is nowhere else in the world where you can stay in a hotel made of ice. Or, sit around the campfire with a Sami guide, sharing stories of your day’s dog sledding adventure and sampling souvas, a local delicacy.

SEE The midnight sun is a natural phenomenon occurring in summer months at latitudes north of the Arctic Circle where the sun remains visible at midnight. So don’t just stay indoors. Catch a dog sled ride in Europe’s biggest nature reserve – Vindelfjällens and Padjelanta/Sarek National parks, or grab some quiet time fishing for the famous Baltic salmon at Torne River. Really.

DO Explore the open space. Sweden’s north remains essentially untouched. Roam the forests and search for wild berries, herbs and mushrooms. Even top chefs in Sweden frequently forage the forest for their restaurants. In the summertime, lace up your hiking boots and tackle the world-famous King’s Trail in Kungsleden.

SHOP Sami, the original Swedes, makes traditional crafts of natural materials. If you’re visiting Kiruna, the largest town in Lapland, head for the Carl Wennberg shop at Bergmästaregatan 2 that has been selling Sami arts and crafts since 1907. Look out for jewellery boxes, wooden cups and knives made of reindeer horn.

STAY The Icehotel, 200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, is constructed entirely from ice and contains hotel rooms, a bar and art exhibitions. Now guests can enjoy the hospitality and experience year-round, as parts of the hotel will stay open, cooled with solar power from the midnight sun.
