Swedish Lapland

Swedish Lapland tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Swedish Lapland, partially segmented by the Arctic Circle, welcomes you with a mix of local Sámi culture and beautiful landscapes. The UNESCO listed Laponia area is northern Sweden's cultural heartland. Visit the traditional Jokkmokk Winter Market or explore the area's Sámi villages, where in the winter the locals will guide you through the arctic wilderness by husky or reindeer sledge.

Further South while away your time in the tranquillity of Abisko National Park. Here you can enjoy spotting the local reindeer population, peer into Abiskojokk canyon or hike the challenging King's Trail. This area is famous for its cloudless viewing of the night sky and is an excellent place to go in search of the elusive Northern Lights.

Extend your stay a few nights at the Icehotel in Jukkasjärvi to admire the ice sculptures and outdoor activities on offer, before travelling below the Arctic Circle for a different experience among Harads suspended tree houses and Luleå's picturesque villages.

Experience the industrialisation of northern Sweden, with guided tours around its successful iron-ore mines in Gällivare and Kiruna, or take a sailing tour along the Luleå Archipelago and discover secluded beaches, quaint fishing villages and historic sites.
