Snuggled between Norway and Finland in northern Europe, Sweden is a winter sport paradise with unique and personalized programs. Its Arctic terrain and landscape adds to its exciting Norse culture. Tourists head to Sweden for its remote wilderness in the northern part of its country, popular for both the Midnight Sun and the Northern Lights. It is the third largest country in the European Union by area, though its sparse population, mostly inhabiting the southern part of the country, makes for exciting adventures away from the crowds.
Despite its northern location, Sweden is warmer than other countries at the same latitude. The country has an oceanic and continental climate in the south and central regions, and a subarctic climate in the north. You can expect cold winters with cool and comfortable summers.. It is notable for receiving less precipitation than similarly geographically-situated countries.

To reach the north of the country, smaller regional airports and quaint country roads will lead you to wilderness destinations like the Lapland area and Abisko.
