HIGHLIGHTS YOU MIGHT EXPERIENCE

Moose

Moose is the largest of all the deer species. They reach 170 – 210 cm height at shoulder.  Bulls weigh weigh 380 – 850 kg and cows weigh 200 – 360 kg. Moose are solitary and do not live in families or herds. The calves follow the cow during one year. Their diet consists of both terrestrial and aquatic vegetation. During Summer when food is plentiful they typically feed on herbs and leaves. During Winter they survive on shrubs and buds from Pine trees.

Northern Lights

The bright dancing lights of the Northern Lights are collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere. The lights are seen above the magnetic poles of the northern and southern hemispheres. Northern Lights appear in many colours and forms. Winter in the north is a good season to view the lights. The long periods of darkness and the frequency of clear nights provide many good opportunities to watch the Northern Lights.

Sami Culture

Sapmi is what the Sami call their land, an area that stretches over Norway, Sweden, Finland and the Kola Peninsula in Russia. In Sweden, Sapmi covers the most northern part. It is a nation without borders but not without a history, culture and a language, very much entwined with the reindeer

Gammelstad

Gammelstad Church Town is a UNESCO Word Heritage Site near the city of Luleå. It’s  a type of town that was once widespread throughout northern Scandinavia. It is home to a unique cultural environment. Here you can find the largest late medieval stone church in Northern Sweden, from 1492 and the largest and most  well-preserved church town in Sweden with more than 400 church cottages. Gammelstad  was listed as a World Heritage Site in 1996.
