Sweden, the land of the midnight sun, is undeniably beautiful. While its major cities like Stockholm, Malmö and Gothenburg are unique in their own right, the country is also home to one of Europe’s remaining wilderness.

The Swedish Lapland is an experience of its own, especially in winter. The traditional heartland of the indigenous Sami people, the Lapland is characterised by endless forests of pine and spruce, gushing rivers and peaceful lakeside villages nestled amongst the hills. This vast and sparsely populated region provides a once-in-a-lifetime experience to take in Sweden’s raw nature first hand. Another draw for tourists? The elusive Aurora Borealis, which can be spotted in many parts of the wilderness.

Those planning a wild Scandinavian adventure in the Swedish Lapland can seek shelter in the region’s cosy and beautiful cabins and lodges, which provides a base as they explore the magical province.
