Vacation in the midnight sun

24 hour sunlight adds a special feeling of freedom to your vacation. Imagine beautiful summer days in a landscape bathing in the sunlight both day and night. Sun from clear blue skies to sky to warm midnight sunshine. Simply put – twice as much summer.

Besides the stunning beauty and wilderness in our landscapes, nature in Swedish Lapland has a lot to offer. Freedom to roam is a Swedish principle, protected by the law, that gives all people the right to roam free in nature.

Life on your own wheels gives you plenty of choices. Changing views and impressions. Wherever you feel like staying, a modern camping or cosy cottage is nearby. How about an archipelago experience where the only footsteps in the sand are your own? Perhaps a journey along Torne River, one of Europe’s finest salmon rivers? A campfire and the midnight sun would give that fresh fish some extra flavour. Or maybe just let the road signs guide you, as it surely will be to a beautiful spot with both adventures and relaxation close by. There are plenty of playgrounds and nature is one of them.

Camper life freedom means freedom to sleep by lakes or mountainsides, in quiet forests or by wide beaches. Time to hike and fish, enjoy the unique nature and experience the wildlife.

You can visit one of many charming villages in Heart of Lapland. Enjoy local food, craft and creativity. Kiss a moose. Shop until you drop. Swim and sunbathe. Discover an island. Admire the glimmering shades of blue from rivers, lakes, ocean and sky. It is the art in the Heart of Lapland, you know.
