Swedish Lapland in winter does not immediately scream ‘idyllic holiday destination’. Yet, the Northern Lights, free range reindeer, husky sledding, snowmobiling and a few warm layers suddenly make the harsh environment somewhat magical. They say people make a place and in our opinion no place does this ring more true than Swedish Lapland. Chatting to your guides over a fire in the woods after a morning bombing around in the snow is quite the experience.
If you want to make the most of the wintery weather in Swedish Lapland, aim to visit between December and March when you can head out on snowmobiles, reindeer and dog sleds and venture out onto frozen lakes for ice fishing.
