Things to Do in Sweden

Lapland offers a wealth of atmospheric, memorable and exhilarating experiences. It’s certainly cold as it’s in the Arctic Circle but there’s nothing like physical activity to warm you up. From dogsledding and snowmobiling to snowshoeing and saunas. There’s always the chance of a mesmerizing light show after dark, courtesy of the aurora borealis.

Things to do

There’s a wealth of activities on hand to fill your days. Learn about the Sami culture and some wilderness survival skills or surprise yourself with what you can create with a block of ice. After a full day out, curl up with a cup of glogg in front of the fireplace with or head up to the hot tub. A perfect ending to an adventure filled day. In the summer, a varied choice of adventures on water abound. From kayaking and paddle boarding to crayfish fishing, all are followed by an enjoyable picnic lunch soon after.
