Activities in Swedish Lapland

Swedish Lapland is Sweden’s northernmost destination and home to Kiruna, Abisko, Icehotel, Treehotel, Luleå, Jokkmokk, and much more. In the summer Swedish Lapland is characterized by seemingly endless forests of pine and spruce, thundering rivers that drain the snow-covered fells and peaceful lakeside villages high amongst the hills. Sparsely populated, the region gives guests the chance to experience raw nature at first hand. Back on the main Inlandsbanan train route, Arvidsjaur offers a fascinating insight into indigenous culture at its lappstad, a diverting collection of religious dwellings and storehuts.

Highlight activities in Swedish Lapland

Jokkmokk, just north of the Arctic Circle, is the centre of Sámi life – not least during its Winter Market when thousands of people visit buy and sell everything from reindeer hides to wellington boots. Moving further north, Kiruna is an Arctic city with a rugged charm which serves as a hub for activities, with the world-famous Icehotel based in nearby Jukkasjärvi that also serves as a tourism draw. Further north still and you hit the wilderness with with rugged national parks that offer a chance to hike in the summer and enjoy snow activities in the winter. Here you’ll find Abisko, the driest place in all of Sweden, and Bjorkliden where the road continues over the mountains to Norway.

As well as the world-famous Ice Hotel, majestic mountains and wilderness for dog sledding and snowmobiling, and a range of quality cultural Sami activities, Sweden is also home to Abisko, one of the best places in the world for Northern Lights due to a local microclimate causing more clear skies than other Arctic regions.
