General Information

One of Europe’s last true wildernesses, the Swedish Lapland region is transformed in the winter into a snow covered wonderland that typifies this Arctic region. The surrounding mountains create weather shadows which deliver clearer skies than other areas of Lapland making it a magnet for those on an Aurora holiday and the perfect place to spot the Northern Lights. In the Summer you can enjoy the Midnight Sun for 24 hours of sunshine.
