Meet a likeminded local – you two have a lot in common!

Daniel Wikslund

Swedish Folk musician, 44 years old

To listen to the sound of the growing ice in winter – almost as the bang of a gun shot – or the silence when nature is all covered in soft, white snow under the sweeping northern lights. A tour on broad wooden skis just when the first ray of sunlights manage to sneak up between the snowy trees, a skate tour on the crust where you spot the first signs of spring. Dippers in the stream, powerful wings from the swans, Siberian Jays, seeking your attention (and food) by the fire. June, the king of seasons, with the tiny birch leaves, the breaking of the ice where the tundra and culture limit meets. The lush greenery of summer surrounding fly fishing moments on the river. When you simply wish that time could stand still. When there’s nothing to long for. This is Swedish Lapland for me.

    Aurora Sky Station, the world’s best place to see the northern lights

    Abisko National Park in Swedish Lapland offers perhaps some of the best conditions in the world for Northern Lights. The surrounding mountains keep the skies almost clear and the light pollution is next to nothing. No wonder Lonely Planet dubbed Abisko the world’s most illuminating experience of 2015.

    Explore the frozen sea

    It was with some trepidation that I joined my first snowmobile tour into what looked like a frozen alien landscape. A place where no sensible person should tread. Sounds dangerous? Let me explain, I am a sailor. Happiest with a full main and perfectly trimmed genoa and standing on a heaving timber deck. Preferably somewhere tropical.
