The main thing you will learn in Sweden is to never underestimate nature and to always act in a respectful manner towards it.

Winter holidays are a great way to enjoy Europe with less crowds and international tourists. Switzerland and Austria are among the more popular winter destinations; therefore, the rest of the continent is more or less calm and quiet. We have plenty of options for accommodation in Sweden available during the winter months and we are sure that you will find your piece of snowy paradise on our website. In the winter cottages you will find all the necessary amenities for a comfortable stay during the cold Nordic winters.

Explore the land of the Sami during winter

Snow, northern lights, serene nature, the people and their way of living in the hardly bearable cold – everything is fascinating when you visit Sweden for the first time. For a “true collision” with real winter conditions, head to Lapland. In Abisko, which is one of the last train stops up north, you can roam nature with a guide during the complete darkness “no-sun” period of December and January. Nevertheless, this is also the best time to see the Aurora Borealis as there is hardly any light to disturb your view, as well as being a memorable experience by itself.

Vindelfjällen Nature Reserve is a huge protected are where fun is all there is. Natural wonders peak behind every corner on one of hundreds of hiking trails. This area is also the home to numerous bird species living in the brisk climate of Vindelfjällen.

Kvarken Archipelago is an area of 5,000 small islands forming an archipelago shared by both Sweden and Finland. The Baltic Sea waves and currents are so strong and unpredictable, that the archipelago is constantly changing, and islands are appearing or disappearing, lakes are forming or being wiped out by the Baltic. It is a remarkable place to see and admire the force of water, and it is also a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Activities

Lapland is a northern territory shared again by Sweden and Finland. Except for being the home of Santa Claus, this is a place full of activities to try. Dog sledding has been used for centuries and is now one of the most favorite activities for tourists from around the world. Snowmobiling is also a very popular way of travelling as only snowmobiles can get you through the wildest and to the furthest parts of this Arctic desert. Locals use them as a main method of transportation and can take you on an adventure to a place where no man has stepped ever before.

Because Lapland is the original home of the Sami tribes, you can learn about their culture and traditions especially in the region of Abisko National Park. There are many ethnographic museums and even small Sami villages which welcome tourists.
