A holiday home in Lapland: an ideal outdoor playground
Lapland, or Lappland in Swedish, is a province in the northernmost part of of the country, bordering Finland and Norway. Considered by many the last wilderness of Europe, Lapland is also the home of the Sámi, the largest group of indigenous people in Europe.
Holiday home in Lapland
The frozen region begs for adventure. You will find a plethora of holiday rental opportunities, particularly in the county of Västerbotten. However, during winter holidays, be sure to book a holiday house or a holiday apartment well ahead of time. The gateway to a range of family adventures is the town of Kiruna, famous for the Icehotel and for being Sweden’s northern most town. The city is a good place for outdoor activities such as driving a snowmobile or hiking on the highest mountain in Sweden, Kebnekaise. Dogsledding is another option. Siberian huskies love to run and kids will love gliding through the glittering snow. Most travellers choose to book a holiday apartment or a holiday house to enjoy the Northern Lights, a light show seen around the Arctic Circle. Holiday rental during summertime is extremely popular among those who want to enjoy the Midnight Sun. The abundance of light gives holidaymakers the opportunity to go boating, rock-climbing, or fishing for salmon in the river Skellefteå.
Best time to visit Lapland
By far, the most magical time to book a holiday house in Lapland is winter, beginning in late November and ending in April. Even though temperatures usually drop close to -30°C, this is an incredible time to spend a holiday here, perhaps after a visit to exciting Stockholm. Families with children come to rent a holiday home, see the Northern Lights, and try out dogsledding or ice driving. Of course, for those visitors looking to go canoeing or hiking, June to August is a more ideal time to visit Lapland. These are just a few of the highlights of Swedish Lapland. The almost fictional seeming landscape brims with endless entertainment and holiday rental opportunities for both families and single travellers.
