In the depths of winter Sweden becomes a snow-packed wonderland, where you can ski almost anywhere in the country. If you stay for winter, then you may even glimpse the Northern Lights while carving your own tracks in the wild Swedish mountains. Visit between November and April for ideal skiing conditions.
Located in the extreme north of Europe, Sweden is one of the Nordic and Scandinavian countries. It borders Norway to the west and north, Finland to the east, and connects with Denmark to the southwest via a bridge-tunnel. By area, Sweden is the third largest country in the European Union. The Scandinavian Mountains stretch along the western border that separates it from Norway, while to the east it has a long coastline. And more than half the land is heavily forested with large chunks of woodland.
Influenced by the warm ocean Gulf Stream, Sweden has a relatively mild climate compared with other countries that are located in the far north. February is generally the coldest of the year, dipping between -22 to -3°C.
