More info about Cross-country skiing in Sweden:

Sandwiched in between Norway and Finland on the Scandinavian peninsula, Sweden is one of the top cross-country skiing destinations in all of Europe, if not the world. One of the reasons why this is the case is because running across northern Sweden is a region known as Lapland. Covering roughly one-quarter of the country, Lapland is home to the Vindelfjällen Nature Reserve, the Laponian area, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and Sarek National Park, which is widely considered to be among the most beautiful in Europe. Heading on a cross-country skiing expedition is among the best ways to see these incredible places during the springtime, when snow still blankets the landscape, but polar night has ended. Away from Lapland, Funäsfjällen, in the east of the country, is another excellent spot, Boasting a huge interconnected system of cross-country trails that run above the treeline in the Scandinavian Mountains, there are few better places to go in the country for incredible mountain views
