About Swedish Lapland

Swedish Lapland - Sweden's Arctic Destination

Swedish Lapland is an international destination for visitors from all over the world and one of only seven places in the world where you can experience the Arctic. Swedish Lapland offers places to visit that you can’t find anywhere else in Sweden, Europe or the world. This region is home to world sensations such as the Icehotel and Treehotel, but also genuine, authentic and small-scale tourism with the focus on people and encounters. We invite guests from all over the world to share our everyday Arctic life and our way of living – close to nature, respecting it. When the northern lights season is over, a period of never ending light and midnight sun begins. At the end of the summer the circle is completed, when the darkness returns and the auroras can yet again be seen dancing in the skies.
