Here you will find shopping, entertainment, nightlife and a wide array of White Guide listed restaurants, located close to the world’s largest brackish water archipelago with 1,312 islands, rivers and vast forestland.

SKELLEFTEÅ

Skellefteå is the southern entry into Swedish Lapland. Half the population inhabits the countryside – next door to wild rivers, hundreds of lakes, dense forests and miles and miles of coastline. The other half dwell in a modern city; a seamless transition from urban to rural defining the good life in the Arctic. The city offers most of the things you would expect in terms of good community services, good transport links and a thriving restaurant and cultural scene.

PITEÅ

In the eastern part of Swedish Lapland, you’ll find Piteå, a lovely small town that attracts visitors from all over the world. Here, you can enjoy the stillness of the forest, adventures on the river, the mystical magic of the midnight sun as well as events and activities throughout the summer. You get to choose from a wide range of accommodation: camp out by the sea, stay at a luxurious hotel or book a cottage of your own in the archipelago.

ARJEPLOG

Arjeplog is a wild, welcoming and wonderful place in western Swedish Lapland with mountain ranges, a border to Norway and the Arctic Circle cutting straight through the region.

Regardless of whether you are out on the water or upon a hill or mountain top between two lakes, there is a good chance that you can see all the way to Norway. One thing is certain; you can spend a long time here without ever having to look out over the same water twice. Welcome to share our wild, wonderful lifestyle!

KIRUNA

Kiruna is home to Sweden’s highest mountains, the world’s largest underground iron ore mine, the original ICEHOTEL and is considered the space capital of Europe. Here, in the northernmost part of Swedish Lapland, the contrasts are as beautiful as they are numerous, almost infinite. You will find a variety of activities for all seasons. Winter months with blue, arctic light, and the northern lights dancing across the skies. Later in the season, there will be the midnight sun and the Arctic autumn is a visual spectacle of light and colour where nature’s pantry is rich.

ARVIDSJAUR

Arvidsjaur, a regional hub in Swedish Lapland, connecting the coast in the east with the mountains in the west and the countryside with the city life. Arvidsjaur is mainly known for its car test industry during the winter, which has given us the opportunity to have direct flights from Arvidsjaur to four larger airports in Germany. The most popular winter activities are snowmobile safaris, driving on ice and ice fishing arctic char. Between December and April, the winter conditions for cross-country skiing and biathlon is ideal. Many of the trails start directly from Arvidsjaur centrum, both for cross-country skiing and snowmobile safaris.

ABOUT SWEDISH LAPLAND

Swedish Lapland is Sweden's Arctic destination, a location trademark for Sweden's northernmost municipalities and a destination that borders both Finland and Norway.

A Sub-Arctic and Arctic climate has of course affected area and nature. But also people’s way of life. Midnight sun in summer, northern lights in winter. It’s got everything: from high mountains to the Bay of Bothnia, the mystery of the woodland and large bodies of water, including the four national rivers.

Internationally Lapland is used as a term for all of Northern Scandinavia, an old name for Sápmi – the traditional area of the Sami indigenous people – divided between Finland, Norway, Sweden and Russia. The Sami have lived here for thousands of years, long before current national borders. This is still Sápmi to them, and within Swedish Lapland, we offer experiences that give a greater understanding of Sami culture. Swedish Lapland also contains world sensations and unique experiences. Both ICEHOTEL and Treehotel are iconic accommodation options. Midnight light in summer allows for a visit to the green, fishing, swimming, biking or walking in the middle of the night. In winter Abisko is considered one of the best places in the world to see the northern lights.

So: even if Swedish Lapland is a location trademark and even if some parts of Swedish Lapland are outside the geographical province Lappland, you’re always welcome to share our Arctic everyday life.

  • ICEHOTEL, a frozen icon

    In the village of Jukkasjärvi, outside Kiruna, lies the original ICEHOTEL. Every year, since 1989, it has been reincarnated in a new rendition and there’s always more to come. From the beginning this was kind of a crazy idea in the winter, nowadays it’s as crazy all year round.
