Ammarnäs

According to some people, the mountain village of Ammarnäs is where the road ends, alluding to Route 363 going along the river Vindelälven to the coast. But, depending on who you’re asking, it could also be where everything starts – such as the river, the road, or the adventure in the mountains.

Midsummer in Swedish Lapland

When the sun never sets, and the kids are on summer holiday. When holidays are waiting around the corner and meadows explode with wood cranesbill. That's when long lines of cars queue up to get out of the cities. It's time to go find tranquillity with friends and family in summer houses and holidays homes, away from the hustle and bustle. It's time to celebrate the most important holiday of the summer. It's midsummer.

The king of all trails

King's Trail or Kungsleden, is Sweden's longest and most famous trail, and mostly frequented during summer, but it's an equally exiting adventure by skis during winter. Göran Wallin, keen outdoor enthusiasts, gives us the insides to this great trail through the mountains of Swedish Lapland

An unbeatable eco-experience

Small-scale, hosting and proximity to nature. Curiosity, knowledge and learning. During her visit to Geunja the Sámi Eco Lodge in the mountain landscape surrounding Ammarnäs, Maria lived in complete harmony with nature. Something happened there, and an inner journey commenced.

Out of reception

Places still exist where there's no point asking for the password for the wifi. Places where you leave your mobile behind to spend some quality time with others – or perhaps with yourself.  The Sámi eco-lodge Geunja and the camp in Tjuonajokk are two of Swedish Lapland's finest.

The eight seasons

In Swedish Lapland, nature plays an intrinsic role in our life and work, and the people here are highly sensitive to the small details of the changing seasons. Therefore, it seems only natural that the Sami people describe eight seasons instead of four.
