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.

  • 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.

  • World’s best place for northern lights

    Abisko National Park, in Swedish Lapland, offers some of the best conditions in the world for northern lights watching. The unique climate of the area keep the skies almost clear, and the light pollution is next to nothing. And here, you also find the Aurora Sky Station.
