Updated: 20 October 2017
Swedish Lapland is a place of magic, particularly in winter, when the sun briefly peeks above the horizon before slipping back out of site, leaving an eerie light reflecting off the snow. Reindeer, dog sleds, skiing, whole cities that have been moved, the indigenous Sami – it all adds up to a remote part of the world that is full of life. Here’s a taste to whet your appetite for Lapland in Sweden.
