Swedish Lapland - the land of the midnight sun

Skellefteå

Swedish Lapland is one of Europe’s last remaining wildernesses where dense forests and roaring rivers provide a wonderful backdrop to exciting activities and sights, warm and friendly locals, and a fascinating history and culture.
Everywhere in Swedish Lapland nature is just around the corner and easily accessible for fantastic wilderness experiences. During the summer months the midnight sun ensures round-the-clock daylight, while in the winter the amazing northern light brightens otherwise dark skies.

Moose safari 

After a hearty breakfast it is time for a moose tracking safari on quad bikes. The beautiful wilderness around Skellefteå is home to a particularly large and robust breed of moose who truly is the king of the forest. During the safari we make a stop in the forest to enjoy absolute silence and a hot cup of coffee or tea.

Let's catch the big one

After enjoying a dinner of authentically northern dishes cooked on the camp fire we set off on a fishing expedition. As it never gets dark during the summer in Swedish Lapland it is a wonderful way to spend an evening out in the wilderness. On returning to the camp we round off the day by settling in by the warming fire for some storytelling about life and customs in Swedish Lapland.
