Swedish Lapland

-Take a voyage through Europe's Alaska-

Ringed by the Arctic Circle and bordered by Norway, Finland and the Baltic Sea, Swedish Lapland extends across the top quarter of Sweden. Frequently referred to as "Europe's Alaska", the region is home to the Sami - the European Union's only indigenous people - who call Lapland Sápmi.

Sami communities have been living here for millennia, navigating the pristine landscapes with their migrating reindeer herds. Ever hospitable, today they offer visitors a warm welcome and an opportunity to learn about a very different way of life.

Adventure beyond the Arctic Circle

Fascinating indigenous culture. World-class river fishing. Close-up encounters with brown bear, moose and wolverine. Nights out under the Northern Lights. Log cabins, saunas and warming shots of aquavit. If this sounds like the holiday of a lifetime, you might want to consider the north of Sweden for your next vacation.

For lovers of the great outdoors, it’s hard to think of a more enticing European destination than Swedish Lapland. One of the continent’s last true wildernesses – frequently referred to as “Europe’s Alaska” – this unique region is characterized by great swathes of pine, spruce and fir, berrycarpeted tundra, whitewater rivers teeming with salmon, and rustic lakeside villages. 

In winter the entire frozen landscape is washed by the ethereal light of the aurora borealis, while iconic species such as Arctic fox, European beaver, Eurasian otter, wolverine and golden eagle take the opportunity to raise young in the summer months.

Swedish Lapland is a captivating destination regardless of the season. Here on the edge of northern Europe, going wild is always an unforgettable experience.

REWILDING EFFORTS

Criss-crossed by countless waterways, Swedish Lapland is defined as much by its rivers and lakes as it is by its sprawling forests. Working in collaboration with local fishing associations, Rewilding Sweden is now working to boost fish migration, through activities such as spawning ground restoration and the removal of artificial obstacles. It is also exploring new nature- based business opportunities, providing support to enterprises involved in catch and release fishing and wildlife watching.

Erik & Sanne

Born and raised in the Netherlands, and with several active holidays in the north they decided to leave our their home country in 2010 to explore further.

“We were longing for adventure and wanted to fulfil our dreams of living close to nature. Our love for huskies and dog sledding brought us to different places in Lapland. We gained a lot of experience about dog care, wilderness guiding, winter, nature and the animals around us.”

After settling down in the Rane River Valley we followed the dream of having our own pack of huskies. These dogs are our colleagues, family and best friends! Every day with them is a happy day out in nature.

Together with our pack we are able to welcome guests and give them an experience of a lifetime. 

"We love to share our passion with people from all over the world and we are very dedicated to give our guests a very authentic and personal adventure."
