Winter is the longest season, lasting from December to March. During this period the cold grabs hold of the landscape, freezing it into a winter Wonderland. Temperatures during this period are normally very cold, so you need to dress warm! End of February the weather becomes more gentle and ski resorts as Björkliden and Riskgränsen are opening up for the season, which can last until the end of May.
Spring-Winter, falls in March/April and brings light and warmth after months of winter. This is the peak season for winter activities such as snowmobiling, dog sledding and ice fishing.
Spring, usually comes at the end of May in the mountain regions. This is when the Midnight Sun never sets and we can enjoy the sunlight 24/7. Reindeer calves are born and take their first steps.
Spring – Summer, begins in June and we go fishing from land instead of ice fishing. But don’t be surprised it can still be a snowy day in the mountain regions. The reindeers enjoy a calm period.
Summer! July is the best time for hiking, enjoying the sandy beaches in the Luleå archipelago or climbing Sweden’s highest mountain Kebnekaise. For the Sámi villages summer is a busy season. The reindeers have continued up the high mountain to escape insects and heat. Sámi must collect the calves for marking, an important and busy event during Sámi year and they get together to socialise as well.
