Since the seventies – well before the ICEHOTEL – adventure enthusiasts have been making the pilgrimage to Jukkasjärvi for one of the finest rafting experiences Scandinavia has to offer. Indeed, as one of Sweden’s four national rivers, the Torne runs completely wild, with rafters treated to views of untouched wilderness at every turn. You’ll begin by donning a wetsuit, helmet and a lifejacket before a transfer in a traditional riverboat brings you to your raft. You’ll then be under the expert tutelage of your local guide as you set off along calm stretches and rough sections alike, pausing only at Puonojokk Island for an included lunch and that most Swedish of traditions – fika. Then, after your coffee and cake, you’ll launch off once more through rapids and pristine forests, your guide educating you on the region’s unique history before you end on a remote riverbank for your transfer back home.

When to visit Scandinavia: a seasonal guide
With such a variety of landscapes and activities, it's hard to define the best time to visit Scandinavia. The answer, really, is that there isn't one. Endless summer days bathed in the midnight sun give way to months of snow-bound fun, when, for many, Scandinavia really comes into its own.
