Sweden is a country rich in opportunities; from the Arctic beauty of the North with its midnight sun to the castles of the southernmost province Skåne with its more continental flavour.

The largest Scandinavian country, Sweden stretches from latitudes similar to the north of England right up to the Arctic Circle and beyond. 

It is also a land of relatively large areas of wilderness, with huge forests and thousands of lakes with simple log cabins scattered along the shores. 

In Lapland, you can experience total freedom and quiet, and listen to silence you didn’t know existed!

Apart from the fantastic cross country skiing, you can try to build an igloo, learn about traditional Sammi life (and see their reindeers), go dog sledding with huskies, or take a typical Scandinavian sauna – a great location for winter activities of all kinds. 

You can even search out the impressive Northern lights. 

And to get out of the snow, you can take a look around the exciting cosmopolitan cities of Malmo, Gothenburg and Stockholm, as well as hundreds of tiny picturesque islands off the Baltic coast, all the while getting to know the warm and friendly people of Sweden.
