Holidays in Lapland
It’s only 90 minutes from Arlanda International Airport to the heart of Laplands’ majestic mountains. Hemavan Airport is situated near to the resort – only 1 km from the ski-slopes. In the Tärnaby – Hemavan district you can find all kind of activities, both summer and winter. There are many different alternatives for accommodation, from cabins, camping sites to hostels and hotel suites.
A different world ... another kind of summer Far away from daily stress lies another world, a different world, where a genuine wilderness literally begins on your doorstep.
Most associate Lapland with winter. This is the season of the Northern Lights, deep, fresh, white snow, and numerous outdoor activities such as skiing and dogsledding. For the native Sami the year has 8 seasons and their spring/winter is typified by long sunny days, ice fishing and glorious crosscountry skiing trips. This is the time when the reindeer return from their winter pastures down in the forest. Herds containing thousands of reindeer can be seen in late April, early May.
Spring is a quick affair as within a couple of weeks summer makes its entry. Temperatures rise, migrating birds flock to the area, and the snow melts, cascading down in a multitude of waterfalls and mountain streams. Within a few weeks everything is green with an abundance of wild flowers springing up everywhere. It is no coincidence that one of Sweden’s best Alpine Botanical Gardens is located in Hemavan.
