  • The midnight light

    If it's your first time visiting Swedish Lapland during the summer, you'll notice that it never gets dark. You have entered the world of the midnight sun, and if you're not used to it, it's an extraordinary experience. But beware, it might affect your sleep quality.

  • A night among the trees

    Treehotel in Harads is more than just a design favourite among the treetops. Returning after a day packed full of experiences there's a treat in the form of locally produced food from Swedish Lapland waiting. It's the childhood fantasy we've all dreamed of – just in a more luxurious package.

  • Arctic fika

    In Sweden we love our coffee, and so-called boiled coffee (coarse ground and brought to the boil in a pan) is in many ways the national drink of Swedish Lapland. Preferably served with all the trimmings: coffee cheese, coffee meat, dried reindeer meat and reindeer tongue.
