The winter in Swedish Lapland is long, yet ever-changing. As a matter of fact, there is eight seasons instead of four in this part of northern Sweden. The locals describe them in pre-and after stages of the actual season. My personal period is the late winter, when the sun is up longer during the days, but it is cold enough for the snow to stay crispy and clear.
Here you can do all kinds of winter activities from dog sledding to ice fishing, skiing and snow mobile safaris. You can stay overnight in the world famous Icehotel and if you are lucky, you might catch the Aurora Borealis, also known as the northern lights dancing in the skye. Meet Swedens indigenous Sámi people, hear their stories, learn to throw a lasso and go reindeer sledding. Try the local cuisine and last but not least, listen for the silence and embrace it.
