Sweden's Lapland region straddles the Arctic Circle making it a superb destination to experience traditional Sami culture and search for the Northern Lights. See itinerary ideas

The region is full of stunning landscapes and offers boundless opportunities for outdoor activities as well as the chance to uncover the rich cultural traditions of the area and people who live there.

Abisko National Park is a major draw, with opportunities to trek the King’s Trail, track the resident reindeer population, peer into Abikojokk Canyon and hunt for the elusive aurora borealis or Northern Lights, which can frequently be seen dancing across the sky here.

Tour the region to stay in a wide variety of exceptional accommodation, from the traditional lodges in Luleå to the unique Tree Hotel in Harads, the Aurora Safari Camp near Sörbyn and the original Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi.

Throughout, look out for opportunities to go snowmobiling, husky sledding, snowshoe, ice-skate, go ice fishing or enjoy some tuition in how to take perfect pictures of the Northern Lights.
