Make a self catering lodge or holiday rental in North Sweden your home away from home

A trip to North Sweden, the Land of the Midnight Sun, is a fabulous adventure. The landscape is wild and empty, with spectacular mountains, forests, rivers and lakes just made for exploring. To the north of the Arctic Circle, the sun barely sets between May and mid-July, giving long evenings for sitting outdoors talking or toasting marshmallows on the firepit. In the winter, the Aurora Borealis provides entertaining coloured light shows – if you are really lucky.

Things to Do in North Sweden

The great outdoors in North Sweden beckons visitors to put on their hiking boots and explore the woods, lakes and national parks. Small motor boats, kayaks and canoes are used along the coastal fjords for getting around, or take a trip on a larger boat and enjoy fishing and wildlife spotting. A traditional sport in Sweden is to take a hot sauna and then run and plunge into an icy cold fjord or lake – try it if you dare! Your North Sweden holiday home is ideal for dog-sledding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, snowmobiling and helicopter sightseeing tours, especially in the spring and autumn seasons. Cycle-trolley riding on obsolete railway tracks, ice fishing and whitewater rafting are among the activities awaiting the more adventurous.

Places to Visit in North Sweden

Visit a Lapp (Sami) Centre at Arvidsjaur along with Lapstaden, a 300-year-old Lapp village and learn about the culture of these amazingly hardy people. Take the opportunity to buy local Lapp handicrafts. In Jokkmokk your North Sweden holiday home is within easy reach of four magnificent national parks. Abisko National Park covers 18,500 acres and has 2,703 miles of hiking and skiing trails. Ride the gondola to Njulla Mountain or trek along the King’s Trail. The power station museum at Porjus is a very interesting and different day out. Jukkasjarvi is the home of the world’s largest igloo, the Ice Hotel. You don’t need to stay there to enjoy a visit to see the church, ice-beds, cinema, restaurant and bar – where the drinks are served in mugs carved out of ice!

Weather in North Sweden

North Sweden has pleasant sunny summers with average temperatures reaching 21°C (70°F) in July and August. In the summer it is daylight for almost 24 hours in this Land of the Midnight Sun. Winters are below freezing for several months each winter with deep snowfall and short hours of daylight.

Travel to North Sweden

Sweden has three main airports, but the most northerly one is Stockholm Arlanda (ARL) Airport, about 42km (26 miles) north of the city. From there, pick up a hire car and head north, or take the train. Inlandsbanan  inland railway is a route from Kristinehamn (Mid-Sweden) to Gällivare, conveniently close to your holiday home in North Sweden.

A lovely stay in Arvidsjaur

4 of 5
It is a cozy quaint little apartment with a beautiful view of a small lake. Walking distance to the town center with shops and places to eat. Sven's friend Souki and her husband were very helpful and helped us to settle in and also provided some washing powder for the washing machine. We would definitely stay here again. The only downside was limited internet bandwidth, we only watched two episodes of our favorite TV show before it was completely used up. So bring a book and some board games for the long evenings!
