Sweden - Lappland & the Far North (PDF Chapter)

$4.95

This is the Lappland & the Far North chapter from Lonely Planet’s Sweden guidebook.

Travelling in the far north of Sweden can draw you into an unusual rhythm. The long, lonely stretches between towns are often completely deserted apart from the ever-present reindeer. Extreme natural phenomena are at their strongest here – in summer you’ll be travelling under the perpetual light of the midnight sun; in winter, under the haunting wraiths that are the northern lights. During the colder months Lappland is a different country: a white wilderness traversed by huskies and snowmobiles and punctuated with colourful Sami winter markets.
