Swedish Lapland

Swedish Lapland is a unique area at the top of the country which borders both Norway and Finland/Lapland. The area is home to the native Sami where many of their traditions are still thriving with very little cultural changes over the years – we can incorporate authentic Sami experiences into any Swedish tour. As a group the Sami people are renowned for their friendly hospitality and offer visitors a glimpse into their unique and historic culture.

The area has many National Parks but the Abisko National Park, which sits on the Northern border with Norway is one of the oldest and was established as a National Park in 1909. Due to its Northern position within the Arctic Circle the park is home to the Aurora Sky Station which is purpose built for viewing this outstanding natural light display – we of course will always ensure you are in the very best spot to see the Northern Lights on your holiday in Sweden. The area is also an ideal place to experience varying landscapes and a range of activities from hiking to canoeing for many visitors.
