Together with my girlfriend I am planning to walk the Kungsleden mid-to-late september. I am particularly worried about crossing the lakes at Sitojaure and Akste coming from the north.
If we arrive around the 20th of september at these places, how are our chances of even getting to the other side? Are there ways around?
Hi, I'm a student planning on visiting Sweden to see the Northern Lights on Jan 22, 2015. Does anybody have advice as to the cheapest way to plan this trip?
Should I do an aurora photo tour from any of the companies I found online (Lappland Media, Lights over Lapland) because they seem pricey but are they worth it?
Which hotels should I look into?
Are there towns/ lodging where I can see the Northern Lights without having to visit Abisko Skystation?
I'd like to ski up and down Kebnekaise this spring and am wondering which is the best route from Kebnekaise Fjällstationen. I plan to fly into Arlanda, take a train part way north, then rent a car for the remainder of the trip to Nikkaluokta. (I plan to visit a musician friend in Östersund and to bring an instrument with me; renting a car will provide a place to store an instrument before leaving Nikkaluokta for Kebnekaise Fjällstationen).
I'm considering skiing up to Kebnekaise Topp Fjällstugan and spending a night there before heading up to the summit. What's the elevation at Kebnekaise Topp Fjällstugan? Is it necessary to cross a glacier to reach the summit?
Tack for informationen.

P.S.: Jag kan lite svenska.
I'm looking for a small winter cabin in Northern Sweden for x-country skiing. Is there any Swedish cabin-rent network or cabin-search site?
What are the Swedish words for winter cabin?
does anyone know something about Arvidsjaur? Because I found out it is a destination for exchange students from Sicily!! Strange but true! So since I am trying to be an exchange student.. I wanted to know something about this city.. just in case they want to send me there for 3 months.
Any suggstion will be appreciated
Thanks in advance
Hello to everybody.
I will travel to Kiruna on sunday for a week for work. I will be staying in Esrange at the Dilbert hotel (which I know it is in the middle of nowhere).
Any advise on the following would be much appreciated!!
- Transport communication between Kiruna and Esrange (bus preferably)
- Restaurants/cafes in Kiruna centre that are open on Sunday (I arrive in the morning and there is nothing for me to do the whole Sunday, I don't wish to stay in the Dilbert hotel the whole day)
- Internet cafes in Kiruna centre
Tervehdys / goddagens,
I'm trying to get from Rome to Eurocity (Tornio / Haparanda) just before Christmas. I am a bit tight on budget, and can't seem to find any way to get there and back with less than 12h journey OR 250 euros return from either Stockholm or Helsinki. As a comparison, I can get from Rome to Helsinki for 290 euros and from Rome to Stockholm for 160 euros.
Is anyone aware of a good way to get there in a relatively short time and without having to ask for a loan extension?
We will be doing a month long trip in Scandinavia during Sept, I wrote the itinerary here a while ago. Basically we will go from Copenhagen up north to Lofoten and then to Kiruna and South to Stockholm. Is it too risky planning to be in the Lofoten/Kiruna area in the second half of September? Is it too cold to enjoy touring there that time of year?
Hi, I'll visit the Nordic Europe mid-Dec, to catch the northern light. I plan to stay 3 days in Lofoten Islands in Norway. Then take train from Narvik to Lulea, onward to Finland. I'm now thinking about making an overnight stop along the route. Can anybody sugguest me where to break journey? Is stopping at Kiruna a good idea? I know that in big city, there will be too much light reflect to the sky and making it not dark enough. Is there still good chance of seeing the northern light in Kiruna? What else can I do (except the winter activities)? Any suggestions are welcome!
