Our favourite part of Sweden is Lapland. To fully appreciate this remarkable region you should visit between December and March when you are guaranteed snow. The Swedes thrive in such conditions and you can expect every activity under the sun available at this time. Dog sledding, snowmobiling, ice sculpting, snow biking, ice fishing, snowshoeing, cross country skiing and sledging are all great fun and perfect for active travellers of any age but especially families.
Wildlife viewing and photography are also highlights at this time of the year with moose, reindeers, wolves and an array of birdlife all to be found in Lapland and beyond. Another big draw is the northern lights – the Aurora Borealis – which are particularly spectacular during the winter months in Lapland, painting the night sky with a dazzling display of green, purple and red illumination.
